Kendall County Board Chairman Scott Gryder Statement on United States Supreme Court Overrule of Roe V. Wade
OSWEGO, Ill. (June 24, 2022) – Following news of the United States Supreme Court’s 5-4 vote to overrule Roe V. Wade, Kendall County Board Chairman, Scott Gryder released the following statement:
"I believe life is sacred and worthy of protection in a nation where all are created equal.
As a constitutionalist, my longstanding belief that the Supreme Court of the United States 1973 decision holding that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution protects a federal right to abortion was incorrect, and falls instead, as with most issues, under the Tenth Amendment.
Today, with the court's 5-4 decision to overrule Roe V. Wade in the wake of Dobbs V. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the court has correctly returned the power to protect the unborn to the states where the people may decide."
Currently serving as Kendall County Board Chairman, Scott Gryder is challenging Lauren Underwood for the future of Illinois' 14th District on behalf of people who believe local leaders best represent their interests.
