Congressman David Scott Statement on Supreme Court Decision Overturning Roe v. Wade

Congressman David Scott (GA-13), chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, which strikes down the precedent set in Roe v. Wade and upends the constitutional right to abortion:

“This morning the Supreme Court issued a ruling that stripped essential human rights from hundreds of millions of Americans. I join my Democratic congressional colleagues in anger, grief, and horror. As a husband, a father, and a grandfather, I hope and pray for a future where women’s access to education, employment, healthcare, and privacy are not curtailed by extremist policies set by an unelected few,” said Congressman David Scott. “Now, we must move to immediately codify a federal right to abortion.”
