Sacramento: Senator Anna M. Caballero (D-Merced) released a statement following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organizations, overruling the federal constitutional protections regarding the right to abortion:
It is an alarming and sad day for our country. The United States Supreme Court has issued a ruling that takes away the fundamental rights of women and people to make their own health care decisions. The right to an abortion has been settled law for fifty years, and women’s lives have been better for it. The decision to have an abortion can be a difficult, heart-wrenching choice, and one not made lightly—but with the advice of medical personnel and trusted friends and family. The government should have no right to interfere or intervene. It is a personal, constitutional right.
