Montpelier, Vt. — This morning, Lt. Governor Molly Gray released the following statement on the reported, leaked draft Supreme Court opinion seeking to overturn Roe v. Wade:
“Should the Supreme Court’s opinion seeking to overturn Roe v. Wade be accurate, we are in the fight of our lives across Vermont and this country.
Our work here in Vermont to enshrine reproductive liberty as a fundamental right in our Vermont Constitution through Proposition 5 also takes on even greater urgency.
As Lt. Governor, I’m committed to growing statewide support for Proposition 5 and working with our Congressional delegation to encourage urgent codification of Roe v. Wade into federal law.”
