Congresswoman Janice Hahn (CA-44) released the following statement today on the 40th Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade:
"Today marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision to protect a woman's health and reproductive rights. Too often, we have seen the judgment of women questioned by those who think they know what is best for each woman and her family. As a woman, I understand the importance of having control over your own family planning and reproductive health decisions. It is my hope as we mark the 40th anniversary of this historic decision, we stop politicizing the health and well-being of women in this country. We must stand with and for all women across this nation and safeguard their right to choose. I will continue to fight efforts that attempt to erode this constitutional right."
