Evergreen Action Statement on Leaked Radical SCOTUS Opinion

In response to the release of the first draft of the Supreme Court’s opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson, Evergreen Action Executive Director Jamal Raad released the following statement:

“From our bodily autonomy to the air we breathe, the fundamental rights of every American are under assault by this stolen, illegitimate court. The choice to overturn Roe and Casey shows us that the conservative majority is not tethered to the rule of law or decades of legal precedent; and that they will not hesitate to impose their extreme ideological will on the American people, with deadly consequences. There can be no climate justice without reproductive justice, and Evergreen Action is committed to supporting our allies in the fight to ensure that everyone in this country is able to make their own decisions about their reproductive future. President Biden and Democratic leadership in Congress must move quickly to enshrine every American’s right to a safe, legal abortion in law and expand the court to prevent radical opinions like the one leaked last night from becoming the norm.”
