We stand before an attack on women’s reproductive rights and civil liberties


CHICAGO –State Senator Omar Aquino (D-Chicago) released the following statement regarding the leaked draft opinion that suggests the Supreme Court’s conservative majority will overturn Roe v. Wade:

“Women’s reproductive rights are under attack in our country. Their fundamental right to self-determination over their bodies is under siege as our civil liberties are under fire. The Supreme Court’s leaked draft signals a full-scale assault on our civil liberties, including our ability to choose who they love.

“Taking away our liberties and rights is outrageous, and it is wrong. We must fight back in the court of public opinion and at the polls. We need to elect leaders who side with and represent the people’s will. The struggle continues, but we will prevail.”
