Planned Parenthood Statement on Justice Anthony Kennedy Retirement

Planned Parenthood: The right to access abortion in this country is on the line.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Planned Parenthood Federation of America issued the following statement regarding Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement effective July 31, after 30 years of service on the Supreme Court.

Statement from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America:

“The significance of today’s news cannot be overstated: The right to access abortion in this country is on the line. For more than 40 years, access to safe and legal abortion has been the law of the land and the right to control your body is an essential American liberty. With this vacancy, Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell hold the balance of the court in their hands — and with it, the legal right to access abortion in this country. President Trump has promised to only appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade. The idea of Trump having his choice to fill another vacancy is terrifying for not only abortion rights, but for our ability to live free from discrimination in this country. Planned Parenthood and our 11 million supporters call on the Senate to reject any nominee who would strip people's individual rights and freedoms.”

Declaración de Planned Parenthood respecto del retiro del juez de la Corte Suprema Anthony Kennedy

Planned Parenthood: “El derecho a acceder al aborto en este país está en la cuerda floja”

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Planned Parenthood Federation of America publicó la siguiente declaración referida al retiro del juez de la Corte Suprema Anthony Kennedy que se producirá el 31 de julio tras 30 años de servicio en dicho tribunal superior.

Declaración de Dawn Laguens, vicepresidenta ejecutiva de Planned Parenthood Federation of America:

“No se puede minimizar la importancia de la noticia de hoy: el derecho a acceder al aborto en este país está en la cuerda floja. Durante más de 40 años, el acceso al aborto legal y seguro ha sido resguardado por una ley nacional y el derecho a controlar su cuerpo es una libertad estadounidense esencial. Con este puesto vacante, Donald Trump y Mitch McConnell tienen el control del equilibrio del poder de la Corte Suprema en sus manos y, con ello, el derecho legal a acceder al aborto en este país. El presidente Trump ha prometido nombrar únicamente a jueces que anulen Roe vs. Wade. El hecho de que Trump tenga la oportunidad de designar a un juez que ocupe el puesto vacante resulta aterrador no solo para el derecho al aborto sino también para nuestra capacidad para vivir libres de discriminación en este país. Planned Parenthood y nuestros 11 millones de seguidores instamos al Senado a que rechace a cualquier candidato que podría arrebatar los derechos y libertades individuales de las personas”.
