AG News Release: Hawai‘i Department of the Attorney General Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court Decision Overturning Roe v. Wade

Posted on Jun 24, 2022 in Latest Department News, Newsroom

HONOLULU –The U.S. Supreme Court’s deeply disappointing and profoundly wrong decision today strips away a fundamental right, causing immediate and devastating consequences for those seeking access to safe reproductive health care.  Despite the Supreme Court’s decision, abortion care remains protected under Hawaiʻi law.  In the State of Hawaiʻi, individuals have the right to make their own decisions about their own bodies and futures; these decisions are profoundly personal.  The Department of the Attorney General will continue its work in the fight to protect and strengthen reproductive rights.
