Joe Cunningham Releases Statement on Supreme Court Ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health
Today, Democratic nominee for governor Joe Cunningham released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which effectively overturns Roe v. Wade:
“This is a dark day in American history. The four walls of a doctor’s office simply aren’t big enough for a woman, her partner, her doctor, and the government. But the government has decided to force themselves in anyway.
Governor McMaster and radical politicians in Columbia have already pledged to ban all abortions in South Carolina with no exceptions for rape, incest, or life of the mother. The only thing standing in the way of this draconian reality is my veto pen. As governor, I won't hesitate to use that pen to stand up for women and their right to control their own bodies.”
