Washington, D.C. – Equality PAC Co-Chairs Chairman Mark Takano (D-CA) and Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) released a statement following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade is devastating for all Americans, especially women and those who seek access to reproductive health care,” said Equality PAC Co-Chairs Chairman Mark Takano (D-CA) and Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI). “Make no mistake, this extremist Court is coming to take away more rights. The right to marry, use contraception, intimate privacy, and so much more are all on the line. Justice Thomas made this crystal clear in his concurring opinion. While we will continue to fight for the rights of women and all LGBTQ Americans, we cannot hide the fact that today will be remembered as a dark day in American history.”
Equality PAC is the political arm of the Congressional LGBTQ Equality Caucus and is dedicated to the full legal and societal equality for LGBTQ Americans. All funds raised into Equality PAC are spent supporting and electing openly LGBTQ individuals and strong LGBTQ allies to the United States Congress who are committed to passing the Equality Act and to ensuring full civil rights and protections for all LGBTQ Americans.
