Luján Statement on Supreme Court Decision in June Medical Services v. Russo

Washington, D.C. – U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that would have closed all but one abortion clinic in the state. 

“The Court’s ruling reaffirms women’s reproductive rights, and it sends the message that laws like the one passed in Louisiana infringe on those rights by limiting access to safe abortions. While this will certainly not be the last time that extremist legislators around the country try to chip away at a woman’s right to choose, today’s decision is a victory for the generations of women, advocates, and allies who have fought to uphold this fundamental right.”
