Debbie Cox Bultan, CEO Of NewDEAL Leaders, Says The Arizona Supreme Court Decision Is One More Step In The Terrible March Of Stripping Away The Rights Of Millions Of Women Across The Country

Statement from Debbie Cox-Bultan,

CEO of NewDEAL Leaders on Arizona Supreme Court Decision:

We are deeply saddened by today’s Arizona State Supreme Court decision to revive an extreme abortion ban first enacted in 1864. This is a significant setback for women’s health and freedom that will put Arizona women in harm’s way, as well as one more step in the terrible march of stripping away the rights of millions of women across the country in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision.

While Arizonans will have a chance to have their voices heard on this issue in November, we continue to call for federal action to protect women across the country. Equally important, this decision again underscores the importance of electing state and local elected officials who are firmly on the side of freedom and protecting healthcare for all American women.
