State Senator Josh Becker Issues Statement on SCOTUS Overturning Roe v Wade

MENLO PARK – “This is a very dark day: Today, a highly politicized US Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade to roll back human and reproductive rights. Not in California!

“Our Governor, our Legislative leaders and I are working to make California a place to welcome all women in need of the reproductive health services that SCOTUS has said can be denied.

“As a Stanford Law grad who is proud to serve in our state Senate, I repeat: This assault on basic freedoms is not acceptable in our state. Not. In. California. Even as we deplore the Supreme Court’s majority opinion, in California we cherish, protect, preserve and defend fundamental freedoms and human rights.
