NEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell issued the following statement on today’s Supreme Court decision:
"Today’s Supreme Court decision is a victory for reproductive justice and individual liberty. I’ve stood side by side with my sisters and brothers in this fight since we started the process of bringing a Planned Parenthood clinic to S. Claiborne Avenue and I will continue on that path. The law is clear: women have a right to their own bodies and the private choices they make. Further, the continued attacks on health centers hurt low income residents, communities of color, and those who live in rural areas who seek birth control, mammograms, pap smears, vasectomies, and much needed resources and information. All of our people have a right to accessible medical care. Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard on this effort."
