Chief Val Demings Statement After Reports of SCOTUS Striking Down Roe v. Wade

ORLANDO — Today, after reports showing that the majority of Supreme Court justices voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, former Orlando Police Chief and candidate for U.S. Senate Congresswoman Val Demings released the following statement:

“Striking down Roe v. Wade and taking away a woman’s right to make her own decisions is appalling and dangerous. We refuse to go back to being treated as second-class citizens whose personal decisions are made by politicians like Marco Rubio, who has fought relentlessly against the right of Florida women to control their own destiny. Women deserve an end to the constant politicization of our basic, fundamental rights. Let me be clear: I will always stand up, speak out, and fight to codify Roe v. Wade into law, no matter what.”
