In response to a reportedly leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, the ACLU of Maine issued the following statement. It can be attributed to Meagan Sway, policy director:
"Abortion is still legal in Maine, regardless of the leaked draft opinion. Maine has significant legal protections for people seeking abortions here. If the Supreme Court does issue a final majority opinion that overturns Roe v. Wade, it would be a devastating blow to our constitutional freedoms. Americans seeking abortions have relied on this fundamental, constitutional right for almost 50 years. If the Supreme Court were to take away this right, it would be up to states to decide whether to protect abortion care and access, or to ban it. Abortion is healthcare. Abortion is a right. We will never stop defending it in Maine."
