California patients, providers, activists, and abortion-care support organizations have plenty to celebrate. With the recent passage of a package of bills sponsored by Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California and the California Future of Abortion Council (CA FAB Council) -- whose members include PPMM’s VP of Public Affairs Lauren Babb and Associate Medical Dir. Dr. Jessica Hamilton -- California is leading the way in a post-Roe America.

Many thanks to the Legislative Women’s Caucus members who sponsored tough legislation and never backed down, even under intense opposition from anti-abortion protesters. Please join us in thanking these champions who serve Planned Parenthood Mar Monte communities:
