HCDP Statement On Draft SCOTUS Decision To Strike Down Roe v. Wade



North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement: “If confirmed, this decision is devastating for the millions of people across North Carolina whose abortion access and control over their own bodies now hangs in balance. There is only one way to protect our reproductive freedom and ensure everyone has the right to make their own health care decisions – elect Democrats up and down the ballot.”


The Henderson County Democratic Party stands with Dr. Bobbie Richardson's comments on the protective reproductive rights and health rights of all women. Overturning one constitutional right perpetuates government interference and only leads to the dangers of taking away more and more of our basic human rights. We must exercise our right to vote in these midterm elections to thwart a GOP supermajority in our state and country. Our democracy is at stake! Get out and vote today! Cindy Ellis, Chair
