NEWSLETTER: An Egregious Attack on a Constitutional Right

A MESSAGE FROM CONGRESSMAN HOYER

The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey is stunning after nearly 50 years of precedent upholding that women in our country have a right to make their own reproductive health care decisions. I am outraged by the Court’s ruling, which not only strips away the fundamental rights of women to decide their own futures, but also ignores the overwhelming majority of Americans who support the protections provided under Roe v. Wade.

Democrats will never give up on ensuring women have the freedom and privacy to make their own health care decisions. That is why House Democrats passed the Women’s Health Protection Act to codify Roe into federal law and strengthen access to care for millions of women. I remain committed to safeguarding women’s equality both in Maryland and around the country, and will not rest until we can achieve this goal. I promise to do my part in Congress on behalf of Maryland’s Fifth District and will continue calling on the Senate to act and defend the rights of women everywhere.

Also, abortion access remains legal in Maryland, and if you are looking to learn more or find assistance, you can click here.

As always, I encourage all Fifth-District residents to continue sharing their concerns and feedback with me by contacting my office or connecting with me on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram. If you are need of assistance, such as with help accessing veterans’ benefits or have another issue regarding a federal agency, and you wish for my office to place an inquiry on your behalf, please complete the casework request form by clicking here.   

Sincerely Yours,
