Senator Becker’s Statement in Response to SCOTUS Draft Opinion That Would Overturn Roe v. Wade
SACRAMENTO -- “A future that was unthinkable just a few years ago is quickly becoming reality. I will fight every day—for my daughter, and for all people—until our progress on reproductive rights is restored for everyone.
“In California, we value, protect and defend reproductive rights. I stand with our Governor, legislative leaders, Senate Pro Tem Toni Atkins and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, who have announced they are preparing a constitutional amendment to ensure and protect access to abortion in California.
“We cannot allow hard-won reproductive freedoms established nearly 50 years ago to be cancelled by those who do not recognize the rights of reproductive choice and health care, including access to safe abortions.”
--Senator Josh Becker, D-Peninsula
