Magaziner Statement on Supreme Court Overturn of Roe v. Wade


WARWICK, RI- Today General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court decision in overturning Roe v. Wade:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a devastating step backward for women and underscores how high the stakes are for this election,” said General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner. “In Congress, I will fight to codify the protections of Roe v. Wade into federal law so that women across the country can make their own healthcare decisions.”

As General Treasurer, Magaziner advocated and helped pass the Reproductive Privacy Act into state law.  Magaziner’s opponent, Republican Allan Fung, opposed the Reproductive Privacy Act that codified Roe v. Wade into Rhode Island law and has previously been endorsed by the RI RIght to Life, a group that seeks to make abortion illegal.
