DENVER, CO — Majority Leader Daneya Esgar, D-Pueblo, 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.
“I was outraged by the Supreme Court’s failure to block this law from taking effect, and I urge the court to do so now. SB8 is a dangerous attack on abortion rights that threatens patients’ health and access to critical care. The Supreme Court must adhere to decades of precedent, uphold Roe v. Wade and overturn Texas’ blatantly unconstitutional law. In Colorado, we will continue to defend access to abortion and ensure that our laws protect the fundamental rights of all people to access the health care they need.”
