In bold and democratic fashion, Gavin Newsom is backing Proposition 1 and urging voters in California to do the same.

The conservative Supreme Court is undermining the right to an abortion, which will result in states across the country banning access to safe, affordable reproductive health care, creating insurmountable challenge in many communities.

We need to act now to ensure abortions remain safe and legal in California and that important health care decisions are left to a person and their provider with the backing of science and evidence-based medicine – not written by a political agenda.

Prop 1 will add the right to an abortion directly into the California State Constitution to ensure that, in California, people continue to have the power to control their own bodies and personal decisions.
