Alek Skarlatos’ Dangerous Views on Choice: What Oregon Voters Need to Know

As SCOTUS hears oral arguments to decide the fate of Roe v. Wade, Alek Skarlatos’ anti-health care record is back in the spotlight

This week, the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization — a pivotal case that could unravel the constitutional right to abortion guaranteed by Roe v. Wade.

As SCOTUS weighs the fate of Roe v. Wade, here’s what Oregon voters need to know about Alek Skarlatos’ attacks on women’s reproductive freedom and health care: 

  • Skarlatos was caught on video saying ‘go for it’ on overturning Roe v. Wade, despite the fact 77% of the American people support keeping Roe in place.

  • Skarlatos proudly accepted the endorsement of the extremist group Oregon Right to Life, which opposes a woman’s right to abortion even in cases of rape or incest.

  • Skarlatos wants to defund Planned Parenthood, making it harder for Oregon women to access basic health care services like birth control, cancer screenings, and preventative care.

DCCC Spokesperson Johanna Warshaw:

“As the Supreme Court begins to hear oral arguments on a case that could decide the fate of Roe v. Wade, Oregon voters are reminded that Alek Skarlatos has an extreme record of trying to take away women’s constitutional right to make their own health care decisions. Make no mistake — Skarlatos is a direct threat to women’s freedoms and health care not just in Oregon, but across the country.”
