State Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, Democratic candidate for Congress in NY-17, has condemned the Supreme Court decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Biaagi’s reaction is contained in a statement issued on Friday June 24, 2022.

Biaagi described the Supreme Court’s decision to eliminate the constitutional right to abortion as a radical decision.

“We need true progressive leaders in Congress who will take bold action to protect us, not make empty promises. Today’s decision was no surprise,” Biaggi reacted.

Biaggi alleged that Republicans have been openly and vocally working to dismantle Roe for decades.

“For too long, establishment Democrats have failed to take Republicans seriously and protect our right to an abortion. Enough is enough,” she lamented.

Biaggi added, “Four years ago, I ran for the State Senate promising to pass abortion protections in New York State. They had been held up by a corporate Democrat who gave control to Republicans and blocked the laws needed to protect women.

“In my first month of office, we passed the Reproductive Health Act, finally codifying Roe in New York. We need this same urgency in Congress.

“Sean Patrick Maloney just helped elect an anti-choice Democrat in Texas. How can my opponent ask women to trust him while propping up anti-choice incumbents? It is time for a new generation of Democratic leaders who will stop at nothing to protect our rights and values — especially the right to an abortion.”

“We know the Republicans’ next goal is a total national ban on abortions and on many types of birth control. We must take them at their word and elect members of Congress who will protect all of our rights, expand the Courts, and abolish the filibuster,” she concluded.
