Democratic Women’s Caucus of Colorado Co-Chairs’ Statement on SCOTUS SB8 Oral Arguments

DENVER, CO–  Representatives Lisa Cutter and Monica Duran, the Co-Chairs of the Democratic Women’s Caucus of Colorado, today released the following statement on the US Supreme Court hearing on SB8, the Texas law that will ban abortions as soon as six weeks–before many women know they are pregnant: 

“While we strongly believe the Supreme Court should have stopped this anti-woman law from going into effect weeks ago, we hope the justices will do the right thing after hearing today’s oral arguments and put an end to this discriminatory policy. As Chairs of the Women’s Caucus, we will keep working to ensure that Colorado respects the rights of women and guarantees access to a full range of reproductive health care options, including abortion. While Texas uses SB8 as another way to suppress, control, and shame women over their healthcare choices, Colorado will safeguard women’s autonomy, privacy, and fundamental rights.”
