SANTA FE — Teresa Leger Fernandez, the first woman and first Latina Democratic nominee for New Mexico’s Third Congressional District, issued the following statement applauding the Supreme Court’s ruling in June Medical Services, LLC v. Russo to protect abortion access:

“Women and families across the nation are breathing a sigh of relief that these latest attacks on reproductive freedom have failed. The Supreme Court decision announced today (June 29) is an important victory for protecting abortion access and ensuring our community members can access the critical healthcare they need.

“But we know that this fight is not over. Donald Trump and his right-wing allies have made it their mission to roll back abortion rights and the progress that we have won. We need a leader in Congress who will stand up against these attacks on women and families, and I will be that strong voice for New Mexicans.”
