On Wednesday, the Supreme Court voted to put women’s health in danger by eroding the protections of Roe v. Wade. In a 5-4 decision, the Court upheld the Federal Abortion Ban passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bush in 2003. The ban is now federal law that will come into effect within a few weeks. It will trump California’s strong pro-choice laws and bans certain abortion procedures, without an exception to preserve the health of the woman.
Our legislators need to know that California will not stand for anti-choice politicians interfering in women’s private medical decisions. Please join us tomorrow at the Civic Center in San Francisco at 5:00 p.m. We need your support to make our voices heard. We will have signs ready and pro-choice speakers to discuss the ban’s implications for California and nationwide. For more information, call NARAL Pro-Choice California at (415) 890-1020.
