A Message from Ed Broadbent and Jen Hassum on the United States Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade

We share the anger, fear, and disappointment that many are feeling today on both sides of the border.

All people have equal worth and equal rights. We all deserve a life of dignity with access to essential services, and that includes bodily autonomy and the right to comprehensive public health care - including abortion.

The Broadbent Institute will always fight alongside women, trans and non-binary people for these rights.

We encourage Canadians to be vigilant and wish our American friends every success in their fight to restore abortion rights in the United States.
