IN THE STATES: Dems Blast GOP’s Radical Anti-choice Agenda

In the states this week, following the Supreme Court’s draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, Democrats across the country blasted Republicans for pushing their extreme, unpopular anti-choice agenda on our country – and made clear that Democrats will fight for Americans’ fundamental rights and control over their own health care decisions. 

Here’s a look at some of the recent local coverage:
