Rep. Strom Peterson on Tuesday released the following statement after the leak Monday of a Supreme Court draft to Politico that calls for overturning the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide:

"While it looks like the conservative majority on the Supreme Court is ready and willing to erase decades of precedent and endanger the health of women across the country, I am proud to stand with my colleagues in the state Legislature and the voters of Washington to protect a woman's access to the health care she deserves," said Peterson, a Democrat and Edmonds resident.
