Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement on the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade, which first recognized women's constitutional right to safe and legal abortion:
"On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I stand with women across the country as we reflect on the strides we have made in providing access to safe and legal abortion. Yet there is more work to be done to ensure that all women have access to reproductive health care," said Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson.
"Today, I renew my commitment to protecting women's rights to reproductive health choices. We all deserve to make private decisions about our bodies and our lives, and I pledge to continue the fight for this constitutional right."
