Tester Statement on Supreme Court Opinion Overturning Roe v. Wade
U.S. Senator Jon Tester released the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its decision in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health:
“For nearly 50 years, women have been able to make their own healthcare decisions without interference from the government. The Supreme Court’s ruling now means women and doctors will be put in jail when exercising this long-held right in states across the country. No judge or politician should be telling women how to live their lives or undermining their fundamental right to privacy.”
Tester is a strong supporter of Women’s Health Protection Act, which would guarantee the right to privacy for women making personal healthcare decisions.
