RESOLVE Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization
Released Date: June 24, 2022
RESOLVE stands with the family building community and acknowledges their fears and concerns over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade and how it may impact people’s ability to access medical care to build their family. Reproductive health decisions at all stages of life should be between the patient and their doctor.
We believe that without the protection of Roe v Wade, state lawmakers now have an open door to introduce far-reaching legislation that will create barriers for people to access medical procedures like IVF or to receive medications that help a patient suffering an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage. Not only do people have the right to create embryos, but they are the only ones who have the right to determine what happens to their embryos. People, including those experiencing an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage, have the right to medical assistance and medications.
Today, the stakes have never been greater. When legislation is introduced that is meant to limit or prevent abortion access and that legislation also threatens access to safe and effective family building options, we will fight it. RESOLVE will mobilize grassroots advocates across the country, share stories from our community with lawmakers and the media, and work with our advocacy partners so that the voices of our community are loud and are heard. We will not back down. We will fight every bill, ballot initiative, or regulation that threatens access to building a family.
