Paul Ostrow – a candidate for Hennepin County Attorney – released the following statement recently regarding the leaked draft Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade:
“Last week the hypothetical became all too real with the leaked draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.
Women across Hennepin County now fear that their fundamental right to choose could soon be taken away.
As Hennepin County Attorney I will never prosecute a woman for exercising her fundamental right to choose and I will not prosecute a health care professional for providing reproductive health care and services.”
Paul Ostrow is currently seeking the office of Hennepin County Attorney in the non-partisan countywide elections scheduled for August 9th 2022.
