Shea-Porter: Supreme Court Decisions Hurt Workers, Women, and American Values

June 27, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC— Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) today released the following statement on recent Supreme Court decisions that hurt unions, harm women’s access to health care, and destroy America’s credibility as a nation of values and dignity.

“In the last two days, the Supreme Court has dealt a blow to working men and women, made it harder for women to access the health care they need, and upheld a ban on Muslim immigration that directly attacks our shared values as Americans. And today, we learned that the Court will become even more right-wing, threatening the strongest check we currently have against an authoritarian President who is attacking and undermining the institutions our founders created to stop unlimited presidential power. Under no circumstances should the Senate confirm a new Justice until the American people make their voices heard on Election Day, which is just four months away. The future of our Constitutional rights, health care for 130 million Americans with a preexisting condition, and women’s health care are all at stake.”
