MOUNTAIN LAKES — The Mountain Lakes Democratic Committee released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court overturning long-held legal precedent first established in Roe and Casey:

“Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned the landmark decision Roe v Wade, ending nearly fifty years of women having safe and legal access to abortion in the United States. The Court’s action overruled the long-held legal precedent of the 14th Amendment’s protection of the right to individual privacy and has removed the concept of bodily autonomy for American women. We are devastated by this news and will continue to work to elect candidates for office who will never stop trying to right this wrong.”
