As State Director of NARAL Pro-Choice California, an organization leading the fight to protect women’s access to reproductive health care, I was excited to work with Assemblymember David Chiu on what we thought was going to be a simple bill, the Reproductive FACT Act.
In 2015, we worked together to pass the Reproductive FACT Act, to ensure that all pregnant women in California have access to timely, medically accurate information about their health care options. In recent years, hundreds of fake health clinics throughout our state have deceived and misled women about their options.
Together, we wanted to end the lies and make sure that Californians have access to all necessary information when making critical decisions about their bodies and their lives.
Unfortunately, anti-choice extremists have fought us every step of the way. Now, after we successfully defended the law in multiple lower courts, they have taken the fight all the way to the United States Supreme Court. We created a video to share the story of the FACT Act and to fight back.
I am excited to share the video with you, and hope you can take a minute to click here and watch it now.
As the Supreme Court deliberates on the FACT Act in Washington D.C., we're keeping up the fight here on the ground, and we’ll continue the fight long after the decision comes down in the coming weeks.
If you, or someone you know, has been deceived by a fake pregnancy center, click here to share your story with us.
Proud to have you with us.
State Director, NARAL Pro-Choice California
