Mosqueda Decries Supreme Court Decision Ending Roe v Wade, Reaffirms Seattle’s Commitment to Reproductive Justice

SEATTLE – Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda (Position 8, Citywide) issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Roe and Casey decisions, limiting healthcare access for millions of women: 

“Cities like Seattle will continue to be a safe haven for individuals looking for access to comprehensive healthcare which includes abortions, and value reproductive freedom. We need to show our support not only with statements but actions including funding for safe abortions. We need to make sure we protect people seeking care by implementing and enforcing policies to prevent harassment and disruption at abortion clinics, including safety regulations and anti-nuisance regulations. Cities will continue to be the forefront of protecting our most vulnerable, and we will come together to fight to make reproductive justice a reality in Seattle.”
