What will happen to abortion rights and Planned Parenthood in the future?

You Have Questions. We Have Answers.

You may have heard about abortion rights cases being heard by the US Supreme Court. Nothing has changed in California and you can still access the full range of sexual and reproductive health care services with us, including safe and legal abortion. Learn more

At Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, we will never turn away patients in need of care, even those traveling from out of state. You will still be able to access the full range of sexual and reproductive health services we offer, including abortion, in a safe and supportive environment.

Here are answers to some of the questions we’re getting from concerned patients and supporters.

Q: What’s going to happen to abortion? Can I still get an abortion?

A: Yes, Planned Parenthood provides safe and legal abortion care services. While we are facing renewed attempts to restrict access to abortion in other parts of the country, California has constitutional protections regarding abortion. And Planned Parenthood will continue to fight for everyone to have access to this important service when they need it.

Q: Are most Americans against Planned Parenthood and/or abortion rights?

A: Not at all. In fact, the majority of Americans support access to health care at Planned Parenthood, and want abortion to stay safe and legal.

Q: How can I get involved and help? 

A. Here are some ways that you can show your support:
