McKinley Statement on the Leaked Supreme Court Draft Decision Overturning Roe v. Wade

Washington, D.C. — Congressman David B. McKinley, P.E. (W.Va.-01), issued the following statement responding to the leaked draft decision from the U.S. Supreme Court that would overturn Roe v. Wade.

“For nearly 50 years, the federal decision of Roe v. Wade has threatened the lives of unborn children. As a consistently pro-life conservative, I believe we have a moral obligation to be the voice for innocent unborn children. The Supreme Court has taken an important step to correct this decades-old error and I applaud their decision to protect the lives of innocent unborn children,” said Rep. McKinley.

“Leaking the draft decision is an unprecedented and clear attempt to intimidate the Justices to reconsider their vote. This is unacceptable and reflects the extreme lengths the far-left is willing to go to influence the high court.”

WATCH: Congressman McKinley spoke on the House floor on December 1, 2021, which was the same day that the Supreme Court heard the Dobbs V Jackson Women's Health Org. case regarding the constitutionality of abortions and the issue of viability.
