Rep. Jim Cooper Statements on Supreme Court Overturning Roe v. Wade and House Passing Historic Gun Safety Legislation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) released the following statement on the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade:. “This has to be a wake-up call. SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade, reversing a constitutional right. That has really never happened before. Each of us values our rights differently, but they are all important, and should never be taken away. Our fears were realized with this attack on women and the rights of all Americans. Now, abortion is effectively banned in Tennessee and more than a dozen other states. This compromises the health and safety of those seeking necessary reproductive healthcare. Justice Thomas wrote that he’s prepared to overturn the rights conferred by the Court in Obergefell, Lawrence, and Griswold. It’s a dark day for our country.”
