Rep. Jackson Responds to the Supreme Court’s Decision to Uphold the Sanctity of Life

WASHINGTON — Today, Representative Ronny Jackson (TX-13) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in their decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“I applaud the Supreme Court’s ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson. This landmark decision overturns 50 years of unconstitutional, federally sanctioned abortion. Since the Roe decision in 1973, over 63 million unborn lives have been lost to abortion. Today, we celebrate the sanctity of life and the return of a court that concerns itself with the Constitutionality of law, rather than writing it. Each state must now stand up for life and protect the most vulnerable among us. I am very proud of my home state of Texas for taking the charge and passing the heartbeat bill, recognizing the humanity of every person. As a physician, I spent my career trying to save lives, which is what today’s Supreme Court decision will help us do.”
