New York, NY (June 24, 2022) – Liz Holtzman, former New York Congresswoman, Brooklyn District Attorney, and New York City Comptroller, released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade: 

“Today, the Supreme Court, acting illegitimately with the tainted votes of three justices who were improperly confirmed, overturned Roe v. Wade. This vile decision also threatens women’s access to contraceptives and same-sex marriage. It is a legally flawed, socially retrograde decision and the fight over this tragic ruling is far from over.”

“The Court thinks it is going to toss women’s freedom and right to control their bodies into the dustbin of history. But women are not going into any dustbin. We are going to fight back.”
