California abortion providers can see hundreds more patients if Roe v. Wade gets knocked down

As the US Supreme Court seems ready Hit the landmark Roe v. Wade down Decision that could end 50 years of abortion protections in country, protests and planning by pro-choice supporters and abortion advocates continued.

representative from Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino counties said the state of California has already seen a large increase in people traveling to the state for abortion health services following recent restrictions in Texas.

They warn that if the Supreme Court eventually overturns the landmark law, the number of women traveling to the Golden State could increase dramatically.

“Prior to the horrific Texas law that went into effect on September 21, we saw an average of about four patients from overseas. As of this Texas law, we are now treating 18 overseas patients per month,” said Nichole Ramirez, senior vice president of communications for Orange County’s Planned Parenthood. “Remember, we’re one of seven affiliates statewide, so you can imagine the tremendous impact this is going to have, and again, that’s coming from just one state.”

Local Planned Parenthood clinics in the area could see more than 100 new out-of-state patients each month if Roe v. Wade is officially lifted, Ramirez said.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta said they backed it up Support for abortion services in the state with plans to make abortion protection a constitutional right at the state level. Fellow Democrats in California say they want it make the state a “sanctuary” for women seek medical service.

Elsewhere, Louisiana lawmakers have introduced a bill to do so have an abortion a felony on par with manslaughter. Louisiana already has some of the toughest abortion laws in the country.

Planned Parenthood will hold a rally on May 14th in Santa Ana. Ramirez said the rally will demonstrate that “the power to make our own personal medical decisions is a fundamental right and access to a safe, legal abortion is worth fighting for.”
