Cuomo: New York will sue if Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade

July 12, 2018 06:32 AM

Governor Cuomo announced Wednesday that he will sue if the Supreme Court acts to roll back Roe v. Wade. 

Many Democrats and abortion-rights supporters believe the new justice appointed by President Donald Trump could tilt the court in favor of overturning the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Cuomo released the following statement Wednesday afternoon: 

"We now need to codify Roe v. Wade, which will actually increase the protections in New York. God forbid they do what they intend to do. I want to get it done before the Supreme Court does that because I don't want any gaps in a woman's right to protection."

He continues by saying, "we have a better legal case when the Supreme Court acts because I will sue when the Supreme Court acts and I want the New York State law in place."
