SACRAMENTO – Jodi Hicks, President/CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court decision issued today in the June Medical Services v Russo striking down Louisiana’s abortion restriction law and affirming the constitutional right to abortion:

“Planned Parenthood in California applauds the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold abortion access. Rights don’t have meaning if you cannot access them. Access to abortion remains the law of the land.

“While California law protects the right to abortion, California is not an island and abortion access shouldn’t depend on your zip code.  While this one restriction was defeated, for far too many people access to abortion still remains a right on paper only — and people of color and people with low incomes will continue to carry the heaviest burdens because of racist and discriminatory barriers to care.

“This is a major victory for women’s rights, for bodily autonomy, for access to health care. Because abortion is health care. But we also know this fight is far from over. We will celebrate this victory and then get right back to work to fight for our reproductive freedom, health and rights.”




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.
