FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The New Hanover County Republicans fully condemn the actions of those who leaked the draft decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Judges at all levels come to decisions of the law that may be unpopular. Our justices need to know that in all matters their deliberations and discussions with colleagues remain – and must remain – confidential until a final decision of law is made. The person or persons who leaked this information must be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
We are a nation of law and not rumor. The issue of abortion is deeply dividing and intensely personal and deserves careful deliberation. We believe the legality of abortion should be decided by voters and not judges. It should also be decided by the individual States and not at the Federal level. Republicans welcome the opportunity to work on this issue here in North Carolina once a final and official decision of the Supreme Court has been released.
