California Continues Reproductive Freedom Leadership; Provides Example for Rest of Country

SACRAMENTO—Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC) released the following statement from President and CEO Jodi Hicks in response to Governor Gavin Newsom increasing his proposed budgetary investments in sexual and reproductive health care and access as part of the May Revise:

“The Governor’s proposed investments in the May Revise are a critical step towards not only maintaining, but increasing, access to abortion in California. The more than $100 million in investments will go a long way in protecting and expanding sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion access, for those who live here and those who may be forced to seek care here. As we prepare for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade and witness other states stripping access to abortion, this investment is crucial to ensuring the future of abortion access in California.”

“Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, as a steering committee member of the California Future of Abortion Council, is proud of the policies proposed by California leaders and look forward to ensuring protections, funding, and support for providers and patients in California – ensuring California keeps its promise of being a Reproductive Freedom state for all.”




Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC) is the state public policy office representing California’s seven separately incorporated Planned Parenthood affiliates. Through advocacy and electoral action, PPAC promotes sound public policy in areas of sexual and reproductive health care and sex education.
