The WNBA players association also issued a statement.
“This decision shows a branch of government that is so out of touch with the country and any sense of human dignity. This is why we say voting rights are critically important and must be protected. We must recognize that when we cast a ballot it is to elect officials and to connect the dots to policies and legislation that align with our values.
“Are we in a democracy where guns have more rights than women?
“This ruling provides a treacherous pathway to abortion bans that reinforce economic, social and political inequities and could lead to higher rates of maternal mortality while eviscerating rights to reproductive freedom for everyone.
“To protect our democracy, we must vote like our lives depend on it. Because they do.”
Several other WNBA teams issued similar statements.
