Per the State of Maryland (6.24.24): On the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson, Governor Wes Moore and Lieutenant Governor Aruna Miller issued the following statements:
Governor Wes Moore:
“The Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson overturned nearly fifty years of precedent and created a detrimental impact on health care access for women around the country. In states where abortion bans are in effect, women experience worse health outcomes, delayed access to care, and unnecessary health complications, while reproductive health care providers face potential criminal consequences. These attacks on women and health care providers will not stand in Maryland. As long as I am governor, our state will be a safe haven for abortion access.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to ensuring that access to reproductive health care is protected now and for generations to come. I am proud to stand in solidarity with other governors, lawmakers, advocates, and citizens across the nation in the unrelenting fight to ensure that women are able to make their own decisions about their health.”
Lieutenant Governor Aruna Miller:
“In a year after the Supreme Court ripped away federal protections for women to have autonomy over their reproductive care, the Moore-Miller Administration has made one thing clear: Not in Maryland.
Since his very first day in office, Gov. Moore has freed up millions in funding for abortion providers and signed legislation that puts Maryland on a path to enshrining reproductive rights into the state’s constitution. This administration will continue to fight to ensure that Maryland remains a safe haven for women to make their own decisions regarding their reproductive health care.”
