U.S. Rep. Yvette D. Clarke Marks Roe v. Wade Anniversary


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Representative Yvette D. Clarke issued the following statement today as the nation marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

"Roe v. Wade established that every woman has the right to the control of her body - a right that already existed for every man. Yet, politicians in many states are trying to undermine that right, and to restrict access to necessary health care services, especially for women in underserved communities," stated Representative Yvette D. Clarke.

"As Americans, we have a choice -- to remain silent or voice our opposition towards the partisan politics that have left women out of the national debate concerning their health and right to choose.

"Roe v. Wade is the law of the land. We need to accept this and move on so that we can focus our priorities on other pieces of legislation that impact the quality of life for women such as the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act," concluded Representative Clarke.
