As more states enact total or extreme bans on abortion care, California took bold action this legislative session and passed a historic bill package that protects bodily autonomy and expands access to abortion and birth control for all in and out of California!
The bills signed into law include a robust package led by the California Future of Abortion Council (CA FAB Council) and Essential Access Health's sponsored measures SB 523 - the Contraceptive Equity Act of 2022 and AB 32 - Telehealth + Medi-Cal. All of these bills combined will address the current barriers to care experienced by Californians and people traveling to our state to get the care they want and need. The measures also support and protect patients, providers, and organizations now navigating a dangerous post-Roe landscape.
Take Action! Send Governor Newsom a thank you note for fulfilling his promise to make California a true Reproductive Freedom State.
