Statement from AD 05 Candidate Joe Patterson on Supreme Court Opinion Leak Regarding Roe v. Wade Decision

Rocklin, Calif. — Today Republican Joe Patterson issued the following statement regarding the leaked draft opinion that appears to overturn the notable Roe v. Wade decision.

“Given the unprecedented leak of a draft SCOTUS opinion, we have reason to believe that Roe v. Wade could be overturned in the coming months.  In the meantime, this draft opinion will do absolutely nothing to change the laws that already exist in California. Gavin Newsom has already said that he will ‘fight like hell’ and will very clearly use this leak as a rallying cry to push forward more extreme legislation that goes way beyond what was envisioned in Roe v. Wade.”
