Today, Congressman Jim Baird (IN-04) released the following statement on the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization:

"I have long believed that the Supreme Court's decision to claim authority over the rights of the unborn was one of the darkest moments in its history; today's decision represents not only a great victory in the fight to preserve life at every stage and for states' rights, but the opportunity to right a wrong," said Congressman Baird. "The right to life is the cornerstone of American principles and now states will have the ability to protect life at every stage, restoring some balance to our federalist system. After nearly 50 years, we have finally corrected this stain on our nation's history, and I'm proud to join the millions of Americans across the country in celebrating this monumental and well overdue decision."
