COLUMBUS—State Senator Steve Wilson (R-Maineville) issued this statement following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization:

"This historic ruling restores the right to life as a bedrock principle of our legal system. It reaffirms our belief that every life has value and is deserving of dignity and respect. Our country was founded upon a declaration that every individual should enjoy the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Today. the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the right to life for untold generations of future Americans. Today, justice was done.

Overturning Roe v. Wade was both the moral choice and the correct legal decision. This ruling does not outlaw abortion and it does not take away anyone's rights. It returns the authority to regulate abortion to where it belongs - the people and their elected representatives in the states. My colleagues and I will continue to work hard to ensure pregnant women and families have the support they need, and to streamline the adoption process."
