JAC Statement on Overturning of Roe v Wade

This is a dark and tragic day in America for all women and their families. Overturning Roe will impact every aspect of women’s lives, regardless of their economic standing and where they live. Women have fought for generations for the freedom to have autonomy over their lives. Today, six justice just erased that progress.
This decision also strikes at the heart of our liberties and freedom. If the Court can reverse a settled right, then every other right is at risk.

That state hadn’t backed a Democrat for president in nearly 30 years. Now, the state’s first Black Senator, Raphael Warnock, is running for re-election for a full 6-year term.

Each week we try to use this space to discuss issues of the day from JAC's perspective. Our goal is to inform you, get you thinking, and hope that you will share what you have learned with your friends and family.

With so much going on, it is often challenging to come up with a single topic to discuss. We always have so much on our mind. There are so many pressing issues facing our country involving JAC’s issues.

In the aftermath of SCOTUS’s leaked draft opinion on Roe v Wade that leaves the future of our non-codified rights uncertain, a debate has once again arisen: the size of the Supreme Court.
The nation’s highest court, for the most part, was immune to the political winds and remained pretty balanced. However, that changed when Trump ceded the selection of SCOTUS judges, and most lower court judges, to the conservative, right-wing Federalist Society.

This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day, a national commemoration for the women who raised and sacrificed for us. Mother’s Day also stands as a reminder that motherhood is a choice. 
But that is soon going to change based on the leaked news that SCOTUS plans to reverse the right granted to women under Roe v. Wade. It will now be the government’s decision to determine when and how a woman should become a mother.

The GOP has found a new way to suppress the vote. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis approved the creation of an "election police force" to crackdown on unsubstantiated voter fraud in the Sunshine State. His plan will create an “Office of Election Crimes and Security,” a way to further spread Trump’s “big lie” and cast doubt on elections.
