California To Become Reproductive Safe Haven

California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed an executive order making the state a “reproductive safe haven” for pregnant persons residing outside its borders.

“California will not back down from the fight to protect abortion rights as more than half the states in this country, enabled by the Supreme Court, ban or severely restrict access,” said Governor Gavin Newsom Monday. “We are ensuring Californians will have the opportunity this November to enshrine the right to choose in our state constitution.”

Following the recent SCOTUS decision, California will allow its voters to decide if abortion and contraception rights may be added to the state constitution during the November elections. Specifically, the measure asks “the state shall not deny or interfere with an individual’s reproductive freedom in their most intimate decisions, which includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and their fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives.”
