Today, the Supreme Court announced a date for oral arguments surrounding Mississippi’s challenge to Roe vs. Wade. DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement:

“While Democrats are committed to protecting the constitutional right to choose, Republican leaders across the country have made it clear that they will stop at nothing to gut access to reproductive health care. On the heels of allowing Texas’ dangerous abortion ban to go into effect, the majority-conservative Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments from Mississippi’s direct challenge to Roe v. Wade. The fact that this Republican-dominated court failed to act in the Texas case and is now considering this case that could overturn decades of precedent jeopardizes its image of staying above the political fray. Republican lawmakers are presenting the biggest threat to abortion access in a generation. The majority of the American people support access to safe, legal abortion, and Republicans will have to answer for their party’s relentless attacks on Americans’ rights.”
