In response to the recently disclosed draft Supreme Court majority opinion that would overturn the Roe v. Wade decision that currently protects reproductive freedom, Hadassah President Rhoda Smolow and CEO Naomi Adler today made the following statement:
"The draft majority Supreme Court opinion disclosed yesterday is an attack on women's autonomy, freedom and health. When a woman's right to choose is limited, we also limit her right to safe, informed medical decisions and procedures. If enacted, this decision will have a disproportionate impact on the empowerment, economic equity and security of women in underserved communities."
"Hadassah, The Women's Zionist Organization of America, reaffirms its unwavering support for full and complete access to reproductive health services and a woman's right to make health decisions according to her own religious, moral and ethical values."
