50 Years Since Roe v. Wade, John Duarte Seeks to Further Restrict Reproductive Freedoms

Sunday marks 50 years since the Supreme Court’s Roe decision guaranteed women had the right to reproductive freedom and abortion health care. However, Americans will not be celebrating this year because just 7 months ago, the Republican appointed Supreme Court overturned Roe and restricted women’s bodily autonomy.

John Duarte shares the blame and he wants to make matters worse.

  • In just the first three weeks of the 118th Congress, Duarte has already voted for anti-choice legislation that would limit healthcare access and potentially imprison doctors.

  • Voted against consideration of the Women’s Health Protection Act which would have codified the reproductive freedoms Roe v. Wade guaranteed before the Supreme Court ripped them away.

DCCC spokesperson Tommy Garcia: 
“As Americans grapple with a less free world that Republicans made by ripping away reproductive freedom, John Duarte is working to make matters worse. Instead of working to restore the freedom Roe once guaranteed, Duarte is actively working with his fellow MAGA House Republicans to ban abortion nationwide.”
