Wicker Comments on Supreme Court Decision

Miss. Senator Praises End of Roe v. Wade

June 24, 2022

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today released the following statement upon learning of the release of a Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“This is a momentous day for our nation, and Mississippi led the charge. This decision is an answered prayer, marking the beginning of the next chapter in our fight to protect the unborn,” Wicker said. “The Court’s ruling confirms what many legal experts have known for decades – that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and the power to set abortion policy should rest with the people and their elected representatives.”

Wicker has repeatedly called on the Court to uphold Mississippi’s abortion law and overturn Roe v. Wade.

After years of advocacy, Wicker, along with other members of the Mississippi delegation and the Pro-Life Caucus, led an amicus brief to the Supreme Court urging the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold Mississippi’s law protecting life.
