GURNEE, Ill. – State Rep. Joyce Mason, D-Gurnee, issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade.
“This decision is a disgraceful miscarriage of justice. Rarely in American history have we seen the Supreme Court hand down such a flagrantly atrocious ruling. In Illinois, we have prepared against this day even while hoping it would never come. As a result, Illinois remains a state in which women’s bodily autonomy is protected by the law, as well as a beacon for those in neighboring states whose governments are even now reclassifying them as second-class citizens. We will not bow. We must hold the line. We know what is right, regardless of what unelected extremists in Washington say. Today, I reaffirm my commitment to reproductive justice and protecting a person’s right to choose.”
