May 3, 2022
News Release

Today, Congressman Norcross released the below statement in response to reports that a draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade and restricting women's reproductive freedom.

"The draft Supreme Court opinion is the latest front in the Republican Party’s war on women’s rights. It is a direct assault on women's reproductive freedom. If this draft opinion stands, it will cause immeasurable harm to countless women, particularly poor and working-class women, by restricting their fundamental right to make their own health care decisions. I voted to protect a woman’s right to choose by passing the Women’s Health Protection Act, which the Senate must pass without delay."
