The U.S. Supreme Court just overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24th and this fall, Californians will be able to decide on whether they want to guarantee the right to an abortion in their state constitution.
The courts ruling is letting each state decide on whether abortion will be allowed in their state and California is controlled by Democrats who support abortion rights. Currently in the states constitution, the legal right to an abortion in California is based on the "right to privacy" and based off the ruling on Friday, the right to privacy does not guarantee the right to an abortion.
The amendment would declare that 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."
