Rep. Estes Reacts To Supreme Court Ruling


Date: June 24, 2022
Location: Washington, DC
Issues: Abortion

Rep. Ron Estes (R-Kansas) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey.

"After more than 60 million babies were denied the blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness before they were even born, the disastrous and misguided Roe v. Wade ruling from 1973 has finally been overturned," said Rep. Estes. "Today's ruling does not ban abortion, but returns abortion regulation to each state and their democratically elected officials. As the left continues to push radical abortion policy in Kansas, this gives a new voice to the majority who want common sense laws that protect mothers and babies, like parental consent for minors, no taxpayer funded abortions, and an end to late-term abortions."
