Statement of Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on U.S. Supreme Court Ruling in Dobbs v Jackson
June 24, 2022
"Today’s decision is a devastating blow to freedom in America. It does not align with the will of the people. It was not achieved through democratic means, and it does not reflect who we are as Americans.
"The fight for a country that reflects, respects, and protects the voice of all Americans will continue. And I will continue to fight to ensure our elections enable every voice to be heard, every vote to be counted, and the will of the people to prevail."
