Comptroller Braswell Statement on SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade

June 24, 2022

Comptroller Natalie Braswell released the following statement on Friday in response to the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade:

"Today's Supreme Court decision is grotesque and a direct attack on women across the nation. This is a reminder that progress is not guaranteed. Without a far-reaching and relentless effort to ensure our government reflects the common good and works on behalf of all its people, we will inevitably see more extremist rulings in the future, threatening everything from civil rights and marriage equality to environmental protections and access to public education. While I'm grateful to live in a state like Connecticut that guarantees access to safe and legal abortions, individual states can't overcome the extremist, anti-democratic sentiment oozing out of far-right courts, legislatures and the media that guides them. President Biden and Congress must act urgently to pass national protections for abortion access, and start undoing the rot at the core of American democracy."
