Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in the US is "horrific."

"The news coming out of the United States is horrific. My heart goes out to the millions of American women who are now set to lose their legal right to an abortion. I can’t imagine the fear and anger you are feeling right now," he tweeted on Friday.

"No government, politician, or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body. I want women in Canada to know that we will always stand up for your right to choose," he continued.

In May, Trudeau voiced his support for a woman's "right to choose" to get a "safe and legal" abortion.

"The right to choose is a woman’s right and a woman’s right alone. Every woman in Canada has a right to a safe and legal abortion. We’ll never back down from protecting and promoting women’s rights in Canada and around the world," Trudeau said in a tweet.

In response to the draft leak, Trudeau said that the minister of health and the status of women were examining Canada's existing laws around abortion to ensure that women will be able to receive an abortion under future governments.

The Supreme Court on Friday released a ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion at the federal level. At issue in the case was whether all restrictions to abortion prior to viability are unconstitutional, or not.
