ROCKFORD, Ill. – With Friday’s Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, state Rep. Maurice West, D-Rockford, issued the following statement:

“I was saddened this morning by the news that Roe v. Wade was overturned by our nation’s Supreme Court. However, I could not be more proud of the votes I’ve taken to ensure women, no matter their background, possess the right to continue to make their own personal health decisions in our state. I have and will continue to support measures that strengthen and protect reproductive health rights in Illinois, and I will do all that I can to make sure our state does not go backwards. I will continue to trust women.”
