(The Associated Press) - If Roe versus Wade is eventually overturned by the Supreme Court, it would unwind half a century of federal abortion rights protections.

U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar says that the draft opinion from the Supreme Court would go too far and divide the country.

According to the associated press Congressman Cuellar released a statement where he says

His opposition to abortion but said the draft is not based on precedent and is not incremental in nature.

His challenger for Texas District 28 Jessica Cisneros is backed by abortion rights groups.

Cuellar also stated, “As a catholic, I do not support abortion; however, we cannot have an outright ban. There must be exceptions in cases of rape, incest, and danger to the life of the mother.’’

Cisneros trailed Cuellar by about 1,000 votes during the March primary.

Their primary run-off is set for May 24.
