Senate Democratic Leaders Jay Costa and Vincent Hughes Release Statement Reaffirming Caucus Commitment to Women’s Reproductive Freedom and Autonomy

Harrisburg – June 24, 2024 −Today, Senator Jay Costa, Senate Democratic Leader, and Senator Vincent Hughes, Democratic Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, issued the following statements to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade and Senate Democrats’ commitment to protecting women’s decision-making rights decisions about your body and reproductive health in Pennsylvania.

Senator Costa explained: “Let me explain as clearly as I can: AP Senate Democrats believe that every person deserves the freedom to decide whether, when, and how to raise a family. These deeply intimate decisions belong to families and their caregivers, not committee meetings or legislative offices. I am proud to raise my voice on this issue on this sad and solemn anniversary, and I look forward to continuing the fight for safe and accessible reproductive health care for every Pennsylvanian.”

Senator Hughes reiterated his commitment to women’s freedom: “On this anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, we are reminded that we cannot lose focus on defending and preserving the freedoms that America has established for generations. Our democracy depends on our participation – we must continue to advocate, vote and work for progress. While today is a solemn reminder of the terrible step backward our country took two years ago, it is important for everyone in Pennsylvania to know that AP Senate Democrats remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to make decisions about her body and reproductive health. We will continue to fight for women and fundamental freedoms that were unjustly threatened by the Supreme Court two years ago.”
