Pelosi outlines possible legislative response to Roe reversal

Nancy PelosiSpeaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday outlined several legislative proposals House Democrats are weighing as responses to the Supreme Court’s Friday decision overturning the Roe v. Wade decision establishing a constitutional right to abortion services.

In a letter to her troops, Pelosi said Democrats have been bracing for the high court’s action since a draft ruling was published by Politico early last month.

Pelosi cited three specific proposals that House Democrats are considering.

One would codify the 1973 Roe decision into law. Another would make clear that women are free to travel across the country for any reason — an effort to preempt any attempts by states to prohibit cross-state travel in pursuit of legal abortion services. And a third would protect reproductive health data, such as that stored on apps, from being collected and distributed to third parties.
