Treasurer McRae’s Statement on Dobbs Decision

State Treasurer David McRae today released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and overturned both the Roe and Casey decisions:

“Our constitution states clearly that all people, no matter how small, are created equal. It celebrates the fact that in America we are guaranteed a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A half-century after the devastating Roe v. Wade decision, the Supreme Court has restored the strength of these convictions and re-established our country’s calling to protect these certain and unalienable rights. I thank the citizens of Mississippi, our legislature, and our leaders for being bold enough to push our nation toward this life-affirming decision.”
