Rep. Long Reacts to the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

Washington D.C.- Congressman Billy Long issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. 

“Today, the Supreme Court made the right decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health,” Congressman Long said. “Six justices correctly overturned one of the worst decisions in Supreme Court history. Roe v. Wade has no basis in Constitutional law, and forced the states to accept the barbaric practice of abortion. I’ve never understand how a civilized society could possibly condone the killing of an innocent child in their mother’s womb. This is simply unconscionable to me and was for 49 years.

I am thrilled the State of Missouri has now outlawed all abortions in the state, in accordance with our “Trigger Law” to ban abortion immediately after Roe was overturned. Now I hope that we never look back.”
