Statement on the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade

While not a surprise, today’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade is nothing short of a public health catastrophe.  The decision ignores legal precedent, sound science, and the idea that a woman should make her own health care decisions.  The Court’s actions will only serve to hurt the most disadvantaged Americans.  

We are confident that abortion rights will continue to be protected in California, and we will work with others to ensure this remains the case.
