Recently, a draft opinion from the Supreme Court of the United States on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case was leaked that if final, would uphold Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban and overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark supreme court decision that made abortion legal nearly 50 years ago. 

In anticipation of the final ruling, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest is participating in Bans Off Our Bodies day of action rallies on Saturday, May 14.

Below is a statement from Darrah DiGiorgio Johnson, President & CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest:

“While the recent draft opinion is devastating, it is not the final decision from the Supreme Court of the United States. Abortion is still safe and legal throughout the country and we will continue working to ensure all people can make decisions about their lives and their futures.”

“If final, this ruling would reverse nearly 50 years of precedent and would have terrible consequences for patients across the county. Overturning Roe would mean that 26 states could swiftly move to ban abortion–including 13 states with laws that could immediately go into effect. That means that the majority of people in this country would not be able to access a safe and legal abortion procedure. And of course, barriers to accessing care will only increase for people of color, people with low incomes, immigrants, and youth.”

“All people should be able to access the critical care they need in a supportive environment. On May 14, we’re coming together for a nationwide day of action to say Bans Off Our Bodies and stand in support of everyone’s fundamental right to decide if and when to start a family.”

Planned Parenthood Action Fund of the Pacific Southwest will participate in rallies in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties. For a list of locations of Bans Off Our Bodies Day of Action rallies in our region, go here or reach out to Shanna Dayan ([email protected]) for more details.
