Congressman Cloud Statement on SCOTUS Repeal of Roe v. Wade
Washington, D.C.—Today, Congressman Michael Cloud (TX-27) issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court ruling to repeal Roe v. Wade.
“Today will be remembered in our nation’s history as one of the greatest milestones in the fight for life,” Congressman Cloud said. “The rescinding of Roe v. Wade will be a major step in America’s journey to protect the unborn. Our God-given rights depend on safeguarding the first essential, inalienable right —the right to life.”
In the nearly five decades since Roe v. Wade was enacted, science and technology have expanded our knowledge of fetal development. We now know that at 15 weeks, unborn babies have fully developed hearts, feel pain, and have fully formed noses, lips eyelids, and eyebrows.
In fact, 71% of Americans support having significant limits on abortion.
Now that the Supreme Court’s decision is final, elected officials at the state and federal level will be empowered to pass laws to protect the lives of the unborn.
