Senator Dave Min releases statement on the Supreme Court’s leaked decision to overturn Roe v. Wade

Senator Dave Min (D-Irvine) issued the following statement in response to the United States Supreme Court’s leaked decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“It seems apparent that there are at least five radical, extremist ideologues on the U.S. Supreme Court, who promised to respect the rule of law during their confirmation hearings, and are now eager to break that promise by eviscerating 50 years of well settled precedent in taking away the longstanding constitutionally protected right to access abortions. This leaked decision makes clear the majority’s intent to not only overturn Roe v. Wade, but also to go after the accompanying rights of privacy and due process that are at the heart of contraception access, LGBTQIA+ rights, interracial marriage, and many other fundamental rights we take for granted today.

This Supreme Court is trying to dictate what happens with our bodies, in our bedrooms and in our relationships, and we in California will fight against this massive intrusion into our private lives. I am proud to be a coauthor of the coming California Constitutional Amendment that Senate Pro Tempore Toni Atkins, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and Governor Newsom will be introducing in the coming weeks. Additionally, my colleagues in the California Legislature and I will continue to fight relentlessly to ensure that our rights to abortion will continue to be protected here in this state.

Finally, to the fellow men who are as angry at this judicial overreach as I am, I want to emphasize how important it is that we get involved in this battle. We must show up and stand in support of our mothers, our sisters, our daughters, and our friends.”

  1. Senator Min your life was a gift given by GOD and then delivered by your mother be grateful.

    Let the legislators from the states do the work they were elected to do and the Courts only uphold the law not make the laws.
    The protesters are only looking to intimidate and the radicals are the ones that released the draft opinion and should be fired and/or disbarred.

  2. From the draft: “The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion,” the draft concludes. “Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.” AND “We emphasize that our decision concerns the constitutional right to abortion and no other right,” Alito writes. “Nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion.” My response: So we can continue to spike babies brains and dismember them in the womb so they can be extracted piece by piece.

  3. Why do progressives use the words “well settled” while demanding abortion continue – even abortion after birth? Wasn’t the issue of slavery “well settled?” That’s why courts revisit past issues and decisions.

    The United States Supreme Court will NOT be overturning Roe vs Wade. They will be returning the issue to the STATES, where it always belonged. Senator Min should read the U.S. Constitution.

    California will continue to allow abortion and thus be a PRO-DEATH state. Other states will become PRO-LIFE.

    All these threatening protests by progressives will be a constant reminder to law and order Americans why we need to have a Red Wave in November.
