SACRAMENTO – Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC) released its annual scorecard for the 2023 Legislative year, with 93 members, including 92 Democrats and 1 Republican, receiving a 100% score*. The list of PPAC sponsored legislation and top budget priorities can be found in the scorecard.

2023 Legislative Scorecard

At the start of the 2023 Legislative Session, PPAC announced its top legislative and budget priorities, including seven sponsored bills – SB 487, AB 352, AB 1646, AB 1707, AB 576, AB 492, and AB 583 – which are included on the scorecard. Four of the sponsored bills were ultimately signed by the Governor. The scores represent California legislators votes on at least one floor vote and in the relevant committees for the PPAC sponsored legislation and top budget priorities. This year’s legislative scorecard considers a member’s vote or action during a critical opportunity to vote or their role in procedurally holding or delaying a priority bill.

“The bills sponsored by PPAC in the 2023 session sought to improve access to abortion and reproductive health care and ensure protections amidst the shifting legal landscape. We are proud to recognize and uplift the steadfast support of so many legislators to provide abortion patients and providers with additional protections, resources, and reassurances in the face of an increasingly hostile and challenging national landscape,” said Jodi Hicks, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California. “The continued action to protect reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy is crucial as we deal with the impacts of a post-Dobbs reality, and what’s more, extremists across the country will stop at nothing to restrict or outright ban access to abortion, birth control, gender-affirming care, and other essential forms of health care. These California legislators truly understand that the work must continue until we achieve reproductive freedom for all.”

In addition to the bills scored, PPAC supported more than 60 bills and budget items impacting Planned Parenthood patients, operations, and mission. This includes bills related to maternal health, social determinants of health, STI and HIV testing and prevention, health care coverage and payments, foster youth wellbeing, LGBTQ+ rights, behavioral health, intimate partner violence, access to comprehensive education, and health equity. PPAC also collaborated with our partners in the Future of Abortion Council to support legislation to make condoms free and available in high schools, clean up state policy related to physician assistant’s scope and training for first trimester abortion, and to repeal outdated parental consent laws.

As states across the country continue to restrict or outright ban access to abortions, California will continue to lead the way in expanding access to abortion services and protecting reproductive health providers filling a critical need across the state.

“We are proud to recognize the legislative champions and authors who stood strong on Planned Parenthood policy and funding priorities to protect abortion providers and patients, and we will continue to hold those who don’t vote in support of sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion, accountable.”

*A 100% rating does not mean a legislator has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California
