Responding to the Roe vs Wade ruling, Lib Dem Leader of Sutton Council, Ruth Dombey said:
"I am horrified by what has happened in the US.
"Tens of millions of women have just lost the right to control their bodies. It is an attack on the liberal values and rights the Liberal Democrats fight to protect.
"Roe vs Wade has been a beacon of women’s rights in the US and beyond for over 50 years. Overruling it is a giant step back.
"Liberal freedoms have long been under attack by creeping authoritarianism across the world. Now they are being torn away.
"We will continue to hold our government to account in their commitment to supporting women’s reproductive rights across the world. In Sutton, we will continue our work to help make women feel safe across the borough".
