Cory Booker

NEWARK, NJ – Cory Booker released the following statement after Gov. Brian Kemp signed Georgia’s “Fetal Heartbeat” law this week:

“The ‘fetal heartbeat’ bill signed into law today is an attack on women and their right to determine their own health and economic futures. By doggedly pursuing legislation that punishes women for making their own health care decisions, Georgia Republicans have shown their disrespect and outright contempt for the women of their state and their constitutional rights.

“Make no mistake: This is a direct result of an undemocratic election. If we had fair elections with fair district lines, Georgia’s leadership would look a lot different, and the women of Georgia would not be relegated to second-class citizenhood. As president, I will fight to ensure that every voice is heard so that we don’t have radical politicians imposing their agenda upon women they have not met and can never fully understand. I trust women to make their own health and reproductive decisions. I believe in universal access to reproductive health care — which, by the way, is just health care. And I believe that Roe v. Wade must remain the law of the land.”
