Sen. Tim Scott Statement on SCOTUS Dobbs Decision

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

“Today, the Supreme Court took an important step to protect the God-given right to life for millions of Americans by returning the power back to the people and the states, where it belongs,” said Senator Tim Scott. “A nation in which abortion is the ‘first and best’ answer for moms in challenging circumstances is a nation that has sacrificed its moral clarity and courage. America’s fundamental promises include the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Our support for babies and their mothers re-establishes those shared values that began to erode over the last several decades.

“Furthermore, I commend the Justices for their courage in the face of unprecedented threats and violence. Their commitment to the Constitution and refusal to bend to intimidation gives me hope for the future of our nation.”
