Take Action

Abortion is still legal. It's still your right.

But the Supreme Court is preparing to end your constitutional right to abortion.

Take Local Action in San Diego 

We are facing an abortion access crisis like we’ve never seen before. And by this summer, 26 states could move to ban abortion — affecting 36 million people of reproductive age. As California prepares to expand access to reproductive health care, we need you in the fight with us.

Some of our elected official champions have docketed resolutions and actions that will continue to advance San Diego’s position as a safe and welcoming place for reproductive freedom. These actions will be up for vote this Tuesday, May 24th and we need to show our support. 

Here’s how you can act:

If you live in San Diego County submit an e-comment in support of item 24 on the agenda. You can just state your support for the item, or you can go into detail about why you support the item.

Item 24 is a change letter that would direct the County to develop a comprehensive understanding of the scope of reproductive health care services offered by the County AND to advocate for regulatory, budgetary, and legislative efforts to support full access to reproductive health care.

If you live in San Diego County submit an e-comment in support of item 25 on the agenda. You can just state your support for the item, or you can go into detail about why you support the item.

Item 25 is a resolution that calls on the State of California to enshrine the right to choose into California’s Constitution.

If you live or work in either San Diego County District 2 or District 5, call your Supervisor and let them know you support Items 24 and 25 on Tuesday’s docket.

Script: “My name is _____ and I’m a constituent. I’m urging Supervisor Anderson/Desmond to support Items 24 & 25 on Tuesday’s docket because I support full access to sexual and reproductive healthcare and that includes abortion.”

District 2 – Supervisor Joel Anderson – 619-531-5522

District 5 – Supervisor Jim Desmond – 619-531-5555

Not sure which district you live in? Find it here.

If you live within the City of San Diego (any district) submit an e-comment in support of item S504 (the letter S, the number 504) on the agenda. You can just state your support for the item, or you can go into detail about why you support the item.

Item S504 is a resolution declaring San Diego a safe city for reproductive freedom and access to abortion.

Regardless of where you live, join us for a press conference at San Diego City Hall on Tuesday, May 24th at 9:00 a.m. to show your support for the City of San Diego’s resolution declaring San Diego a safe city for reproductive freedom and access to abortion.

While these actions alone are not enough to protect bodily autonomy for millions of Americans, it is an important step we can take today to stand up for abortion access here in San Diego County.
