Democratic Gov. Tim Walz, Minnesota:
Republican Gov. Kay Ivey, Alabama:
Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul, New York:

“We’ve been preventing this battle for too lengthy. I refuse to go backwards. I refuse to let my new granddaughter need to battle for the rights generations have fought for and gained, rights that she needs to be assured.”
“For anybody who wants entry to care, our state will welcome you with open arms. New York will at all times be a spot the place abortion rights are protected and the place abortion is protected and accessible.
