Council Member Kingʻs Statement About Recent SCOTUS Rulings

Council Member Kelly Takaya King, a candidate for Mayor of Maui County, released the following statement this morning regarding the Supreme Courtʻs recent rulings:

"As a Pro-Choice supporter of Women’s and the LGBTQ+ community’s rights to control our own bodies, I find it devastating to have the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

SCOTUS next attacked the environment by ruling that the Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have the authority to protect our environment.

I urge Hawaiʻi's officials to join me in renewing our commitment to the rights of all humans to make choices for our own bodies, to decide on our leaders in fair and open elections, and to protect our ʻāina for future generations."
