BAC Statement on US. Supreme Court Overturning Roe v. Wade

[Washington, D.C.] International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) President Tim Driscoll issued the following statement today after US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade:

"Today's Supreme Court decision to eliminate women’s constitutional right to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions is a direct assault on the right of individual self-determination -- the essential right to control one’s own body without government interference.

"Labor unions are dedicated to the proposition that workers have a voice in promoting the physical, economic, and social welfare of their members and all other workers. And the right of workers to control their own bodies cannot be separated from the right of workers to control their own labor.

"BAC will remain engaged to support the right of women, and all workers, to make their own decisions about their health and body."
