Statement from Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights:
“We don’t know if the document as reported by Politico is legitimate, and we don’t know if it represents the views of a majority of the Supreme Court. What we do know is that if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade it will be an unjustified, unprecedented stripping away of a guaranteed right that has been in place for nearly five decades. It would represent the most damaging setback to the rights of women in the history of our country.
It’s important to remember that the Court has not yet issued a decision and abortion remains legal in the United States.”
