Assemblymember Weber Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe v Wade

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber (D-San Diego) issued the following statement in response to Supreme Court Decision overturning Roe v. Wade:

“I’m greatly saddened by the decision of the Supreme Court to turn back the clock on women today.  Reproductive care is health care and millions of women will be harmed by this decision. We know that abortions will not stop but safe abortions will be unavailable in numerous states, putting women’s lives at risk. The greatest burden will be carried by low income and women of color.”

“The need for my bill, AB 2134, the California Abortion and Reproductive Equity Act, which would establish the Reproductive Health Equity Program to provide grants to providers who offer reproductive and sexual health care, free of cost, to patients with low-incomes and those who lack health care coverage for reproductive health services is greater than ever. California has multiple bills in progress and a plan to codify a woman’s right to choose in our state constitution.”
