Blackburn Statement on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization
June 24, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
“Having worked alongside Tennesseans to protect the innocent lives of unborn children for years, I applaud today’s Supreme Court ruling. Despite false claims from the left, this decision will not ban abortion. Instead, it returns the decision to the states and empowers state legislatures with more flexibility to craft policy through the democratic process,” said Senator Blackburn. “It is unacceptable that a draft opinion was leaked in advance and that the person responsible has not been caught. The leaker has jeopardized the safety of our justices, and threats of violence by the radical militant mob are unacceptable. We appreciate the brave law enforcement officers working overtime to protect our justices and their families.”
