McHenry on the Supreme Court's Dobbs v. Jackson Decision

Today, Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision on abortion:

“I join with millions of Americans applauding the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson. It is an important step forward to protect the right to life of the unborn and end the tragedy of abortion. Today’s decision also marks a return to our constitutional norm of rights and powers being reserved to the states, and a federal government of limited and enumerated powers.

“Despite today’s win for the most vulnerable among us, more work remains to protect the lives of those who cannot defend themselves.”
