San Diego leaders unveil plans on abortion care

On Friday, June 24, the conservative-majority Supreme Court dominated 6-3 to overturn Roe v. Wade.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — Regional elected leaders introduced Monday efforts to guard and broaden entry to abortion care regionally, statewide, and on the federal stage. 

Vice Chair Nora Vargas introduced collectively regional elected leaders to display unity and solidarity with people who find themselves in despair throughout the nation, as a result of choice by the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Let’s be clear, this decision by the Supreme Court will only create an environment, where abortions take place in unsafe conditions, putting people’s health at risk,” mentioned Vice Chair Nora Vargas, San Diego County Board of Supervisors. “Our San Diego region stands united and ready to support access to reproductive health and we will continue to fight to ensure abortion is safe and legal across the nation.”

San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria emphasised that this can be a battle for elementary rights on this nation.

“The decision the Supreme Court handed down on Friday was chilling in its scope and what it portends for the future of America – a rollback of the precedents that have established and expanded our freedoms over the past several decades. Here in California, and in San Diego, we promise to fortify your freedoms so they cannot be eroded by justices catering to right-wing extremists. But we will also continue to fight for the fundamental rights of all people in all states. None of us is free unless all of us are free.”

On Friday, June 24, the conservative-majority Supreme Court dominated 6-3 to overturn Roe. v. Wade, successfully ending abortion constitutional protections that had been in place for practically 50 years. 

State Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), launched a constitutional modification earlier this month that might ask voters to enshrine California’s abortion protections in the state Constitution

Senate Constitutional Amendment 10 would prohibit the state from denying or interfering with an individual’s “reproductive freedom in their most intimate decisions, which includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and their fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives,” in line with the modification.

The proposal should move each homes with two-thirds approval earlier than the June 30 deadline as a way to place a measure on the November statewide poll. The state meeting is predicted to vote on the modification Monday. 

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a invoice Friday vowing to defend sufferers and medical professionals from being pursued by authorities in states the place the process turns into outlawed after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade. On the West Coast, the Democratic governors of California, Washington and Oregon issued a joint “multi-state commitment,” saying they may work collectively to defend sufferers and care suppliers.
