Statement from Attorney General Frey on Threat to Landmark Abortion Ruling

May 5, 2022

 “I am deeply disturbed by the draft opinion from the Supreme Court overturning Roe. Constitutionally-guaranteed rights of bodily autonomy are a requirement for any free and equitable society. To the extent that the draft reflects the final decision, it is additionally disturbing that the Justices are willing to overturn long-standing precedent, undermining the public’s faith in the reliability of the rulings of the Supreme Court. While Maine currently has strong reproductive health laws, I promise in my role as Attorney General that I will continue to do everything in my power to ensure unfettered access to abortion services.”
