BALTIMORE, MD. (Friday, June 24, 2022) - Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"Today the court has taken aim at women and their right to make fundamental health choices about their own bodies. This decision is especially harmful for Black Women and Women of Color who already face disparate health challenges and barriers to care. The court got it absolutely wrong again today. Men have absolutely no place deciding what women do with their bodies.

I promise to make sure Baltimore City is doing its part to maintain safe access to abortion services for our resident and those who come here seeking care. I call on my fellow mayors to do the same in their cities.

This election cycle couldn’t be more important. If, like me, you support women’s rights, make sure your voice is heard on the ballot."
