Texas Democrats Respond to Leaked Supreme Court Opinion Repudiating Roe v. Wade

State Rep. Ina Minjarez (D-San Antonio) released a statement decrying the leaked draft.

“Texas has the highest rate of uninsured people in the country, and some of the worst health outcomes for mothers in the developed world. After the recent 87th Legislative Session, Texas also has among the most restrictive abortion regimes in the entire country,” Minjarez stated.

“If this decision is adopted, survivors of rape or incest will be forced to carry to term. Women with extreme health risks will face the very real prospect of death, regardless of the ultimate viability of her child. Everyday women will have a stark choice between death, a back-alley abortion, or potential felony prosecution for an innocent miscarriage.”
