La Jolla Patch - Peters Reiterates Support for Roe v. Wade Ruling on 41st Anniversary
Chris Jennewein - Rep. Scott Peters on Wednesday reiterated his support for women making their own reproductive choices on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court's landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.
"Women should be free to make their own reproductive choices with the advice of their doctors and without the interference of Washington politicians,” Peters said in a statement.
"It’s unbelievable to me that while we have so much to do in Congress – immigration reform, fixing the tax code, creating jobs – House Republicans have made interference in women’s reproductive rights one of their priorities this year. I will continue to fight these efforts and work to protect women’s rights."
Peters, a Democrat, represents the 52nd District, which includes Coronado, La Jolla, Carmel Valley, Rancho Penasquitos, 4S Ranch, Rancho Bernardo and Poway, among other communities in San Diego County.
