Hoeven Statement on Supreme Court Decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement after the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) issued its opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: 

“The Supreme Court’s decision respects the sanctity of life and rightfully denies that the Constitution provided a right to abortion. The ruling is consistent with my work as Governor of North Dakota and in the Senate to advance pro-life legislation and support policies that protect the health of mothers and children. At the same time, this is a historic ruling for both life and states’ rights, and we will continue working to protect the unborn and preserve the sanctity of life.”
