U.S. Representative Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) released the following statement following today's decision by the United States Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.
"Today is a momentous and historic day for our Republic. Forty-nine years ago, in 1973, the Supreme Court twisted our Constitution to create the right to abortion that has never existed in the Constitution. With today's ruling, the egregious and wrongly decided Roe v. Wade decision and 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision have been struck down, and the question of abortion goes back to the states and the people where it belongs."
"Since 1973, over 63 million innocent babies have been killed because of Roe. Beginning today, every unborn child has the chance to live as our Creator intended. I am proud that Tennessee will lead the way to protect life in our state now Roe is gone."
