Joe Cunningham Releases Statement on Leaked Supreme Court Ruling

Today, former Congressman and Democratic candidate for governor Joe Cunningham released the following statement regarding the leaked Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey:

“For the first time in our nation’s history, our daughters are poised to have fewer rights than their mothers and grandmothers. It is unconscionable that the Supreme Court would upend half a century of precedent that has saved countless lives.

This race for governor is now more important than ever before. Make no mistake: Republicans in South Carolina will do everything in their power to pass a total ban on abortion, and the only thing standing in the way of that is the veto pen of a Democratic Governor. I promise you, I will do everything in my power to ensure that women retain control over their own reproductive decisions, while Henry McMaster will do everything in his power to take away the rights of South Carolina’s women to choose what happens to their body.

The stakes could not be higher. Lives are at risk. To every South Carolinian who believes that women should make their own decisions about what happens to their body: we need you to vote.”
