Statement from Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey on the Supreme Court Overturning Roe v. Wade

PITTSBURGH — Mayor Ed Gainey released the following statement in respose to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade:

"Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is an attack on the civil and human rights of our entire country. Abortion is healthcare and denying the right to bodily autonomy of women, trans men, non-binary, and disabled people in America is stripping them of their fundamental right to privacy. Abortion is still legal in Pennsylvania and I will do whatever it takes to protect and defend that right in Pittsburgh and across our entire Commonwealth. We must ensure that people can make decisions about their bodies, their lives, and their futures and all of us must recommit ourselves to the work of making America more just and equal for everyone."
