Bustos Statement on Leaked Supreme Court Opinion Draft

WASHINGTON — Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) released the following statement on a leaked draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court that would overturn the longstanding Roe v. Wade precedent: 

“In America, we don’t allow the government to come into our home and force a decision on us and our family. Yet that’s exactly what this draft opinion prepares to do.

“Personal medical decisions should be made between a patient and her doctor, not by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“If the Court formally adopts the leaked draft opinion, it would represent a radical departure from longstanding protections of personal freedom and bodily autonomy.”
