Abortion Rights: What You Need to Know

In California, abortion remains safe and legal. 

You may have heard of recent attacks on abortion access and reproductive rights. In California, you can still access the full range of sexual and reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion.

At Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, we are continuing to provide medication abortion through approved medication regimens. Our doors are open to provide you with high-quality and compassionate health care. No matter what.

Make an appointment today!

We will never turn away patients in need of care no matter where they live. 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. 

Learn more about how people who live outside of California can get the abortion care they need at one of our 20 health centers.

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

Q: Will I still be able to get a medication abortion in California?

A:  Medication abortion is still safe and legal and you can still come to Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest for the care you need.

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

A: Yes, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest still provides safe and legal abortion care services. While we are facing severe restrictions to abortion in other parts of the country, California has legally protected abortion care. 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 abortion rights?

A: Not at all. In fact, the majority of Americans support access to safe, legal abortion and believe that the U.S. Supreme Court should not have overturned Roe v. Wade
