Senator Stabenow Statement on the Vote to Protect Roe v. Wade

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

WASHINGTON—Senator Stabenow released the following statement ahead of today’s vote in the U.S. Senate on the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would write Roe v. Wade into law and defend the rights of Americans to make their own reproductive health decisions.


“Today every single United States Senator will go on the record on whether or not a woman has the freedom to make her own reproductive health decisions. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, women in Michigan and across the country will lose 50 years of our freedom and face the ultimate intrusion into our privacy. I will vote for the Women’s Health Protection Act and protect a woman’s freedom to make her own health decisions.”
