Pascrell Praises Invalidation of Louisiana Abortion Restrictions

Washington, DC, June 29, 2020

U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today praised the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-to-4 decision in June Medical Services v. Russo striking down a draconian anti-choice Louisiana law and for now preserving a woman’s right to choose in the United States.

“This holding is the right one and a good ruling for freedom,” said Rep. Pascrell, a longtime supporter of a woman’s right to choose. “A woman should have complete agency over her own body, and any medical decisions should be between a woman and her doctor. The states and the federal government should not interfere in any medical decisions a woman makes for herself. The High Court did the right thing in this case. Roe v. Wade should remain the law of the land and the right to choose must endure in America.”
