LOS ANGELES –Today, the Directors Guild of America strongly condemned the decision of the Supreme Court which overturns 50 years of precedent in reproductive rights for women:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is a giant step backwards for our country and puts women’s lives at risk,” said DGA President Lesli Linka Glatter. “It denies countless women the most basic of their human rights – the right to autonomy over their own bodies. We are committed to making sure our members continue to have access and ability to make their own reproductive decisions and determine the path they set for their own lives. We strongly condemn this ruling and stand in solidarity with so many others speaking out to decry this travesty.”

Earlier today, the Directors Guild Foundation approved a new policy providing financial travel assistance to DGA members who need to travel out of state to ensure they have access to safe abortion services regardless of their state of residence.
