Washington D.C.- Congressman David Rouzer (NC-07) released the following statement reacting to the leak of the draft Supreme Court decision that calls for Roe v. Wade to be overturned:
 
“First and foremost, yesterday’s leak is an unprecedented attempt to undermine the institution of the United States Supreme Court.  This unethical breach is all about advancing a political agenda at the expense of our great republic and the rule of law, and it must be immediately investigated.
 
“If Justice Alito’s draft opinion holds and Roe v. Wade is repealed, the issue of abortion will be delegated to the states and their elected representatives.  This is exactly where the debate to determine the legality of abortion should rightfully take place — by the people and not in the courts.
 
“While we wait to learn the Court’s final ruling in the coming months, I will remain committed to upholding the value of every life and will continue fighting to protect the most vulnerable among us.”
