Wes Moore issues statement on the Supreme Court’s draft decision on Roe v. Wade

BALTIMORE (May 2, 2022) – Democratic candidate for Maryland Governor Wes Moore issued the following statement on reports of the Supreme Court’s pending decision to overturn Roe v. Wade:

“The Supreme Court’s pending decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is deeply disturbing and dangerous. It cannot be overstated how many people will die as a result of this decision. This is precisely why, if I am elected governor, I will fight to defend Marylanders’ right to access safe and legal abortions – including through constitutional amendment – and oppose any efforts to restrict access to reproductive care in Maryland.” 

“For decades, activists and leaders have fought to ensure abortions were safe and accessible in Maryland. Amid this unprecedented assault on reproductive health care, we must build on that work and enshrine this fundamental right in our constitution. Our responsibility to fiercely protect and defend the right to an abortion could not be more urgent. The Moore-Miller administration will always stand firmly in support of reproductive freedoms. Abortion is health care.”
