On Friday June 24th the United States Supreme Court issued its final decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, ending our constitutional right to abortion. Within hours of the announcement, supporters gathered nationwide to protest the end of our right to control our bodies and our futures. Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties hosted six local rallies in Laguna Beach, Ontario, Fullerton, Irvine, Redlands, and Victorville for individuals to come together and express their outrage at this decision and also show the Supreme Court and politicians that we won’t back down.
More than 2,500 individuals from the community showed up across each location to express their outrage at this decision, and to rally in support for abortion access for all.
The Fight is Just Beginning
The road back to national abortion access is long, but we are prepared to continue this fight. It’s crucial to continue to show up and speak out at every opportunity to show our representatives and the Supreme Court that we’re still here, and will not rest until everyone has access to safe, legal abortion. Here’s three actions you can do today to help.
Abortion is still legal in California, and our doors are always open to those seeking care regardless of their zip code, ability to pay, or immigration status. Help us continue to provide the care and resources that our communities have come to rely on and ensure that everyone has the access they need to control their life, their body, and their future.
