The State of Abortion
It’s happening. A leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion has revealed that the court is set to overturn Roe v Wade and strip away the constitutional right to abortion. This decision could likely leave the power to legalize or ban abortion up to individual states, putting abortion access across the nation at stake. The right to abortion is codified in California’s state constitution and California is a “Reproductive Freedom” state, meaning anyone has access to safe and legal abortion in California—and we must fight to keep it that way.
Below you can find information about how we’ve arrived at this crisis point in the fight for reproductive rights, and how you can get involved in helping to ensure access to care.
