California Attorney General Rob Bonta supports abortion

In response to the leaking of a draft opinion on the Dobbs case currently before the Supreme Court, California Attorney General Rob Bonta included the following statement in his weekly email update:

California values and protects reproductive rights, freedom, and justice. We will continue our fight to preserve and protect access to reproductive healthcare. Our position has been clear from the beginning: Roe v. Wade has been the law of the land for half a century and it should be upheld. Millions of individuals over multiple generations have relied on the constitutional guarantee recognized in Roe v. Wade, which allows individuals to make the deeply personal decision of whether to carry a pregnancy to term. We won’t backslide — California law protects reproductive freedom, including safe and legal abortion.

No matter what happens at the U.S. Supreme Court, as our state’s chief law enforcement officer, I will use the full force of the law, the full authority of my office, to defend Californians’ reproductive rights.
