Senator Roegner on U.S. Supreme Court's Historic Pro-Life Ruling
COLUMBUS—State Senator Kristina Roegner
(R-Hudson) issued the following statement following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization:
"This is a historic day for our nation, one that is long overdue. The highest court in the land has reaffirmed our belief in the sanctity of life - that every life is precious and deserving of dignity and respect. Our country was established with the intent for every individual to enjoy the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Today the U.S.Supreme Court has upheld the right to life for untold generations of future Americans."
"This ruling does not outlaw abortion but rather returns this decision to the states- where it belongs. Some states will choose to continue to permit abortion. Others will not. I am thankful that Ohio is a pro-life state.
“Now more than ever it is important that we ensure pregnant women and families have the support they need as well as streamline the adoption process.”
"I have fought long and hard for the pro-life movement, so I am particularly gratified by this historic decision restoring the right to life. Today’s ruling deepens my faith in this nation - today justice was done.”
