Sen. Kelly on the Supreme Court’s Ruling on Abortion Access

Today, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly issued this statement following the United States Supreme Court’s ruling on abortion access. 

“Today’s decision is a giant step backward for our country. Women deserve the right to make their own decisions about abortion. It is just wrong that the next generation of women will have fewer freedoms than my grandmother did,” said Senator Kelly.

“In Arizona, there are already restrictive bans on the books that will take rights away from Arizona women, without exceptions even in the case of rape or incest. I know that this decision and these laws are leaving many Arizonans frustrated and scared. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment. I am resolved to defend and protect the right of Arizona women to make their own health care decisions,” concluded Senator Kelly. 

Kelly is a co-sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act which would write almost 50 years of precedent for abortion protections under Roe v. Wade into law.
