If Roe V. Wade Is Repealed, California May Become An Abortion Sanctuary

According to the Associated Press, California has announced a proposal to give abortions to “pregnant persons” from states where the operation is illegal. There’s a discussion of the government footing the bill for not only abortion but also airfare and housing. California, as is customary, is the first to declare itself a sanctuary state.

If Roe v. Wade is reversed, the California Future of Abortion Council, which includes more than 40 abortion providers and advocacy groups, has issued a list of 45 proposals for the state to consider. The 48-year-old Supreme Court judgment is prohibiting states from banning abortion. If the United States Supreme Court permits them next year, more than a half-dozen states are ready to outlaw abortion.

More than 40 abortion providers and advocacy groups make up the California Future of Abortion Council. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, the 48-year-old ruling that prohibits states from prohibiting abortion, they have a list of 45 recommendations for the state to consider. In January, the governor’s budget plan will incorporate some of the report’s findings.

California’s Legislative Analyst’s Office estimates that the state will generate a $31 billion surplus next year. The research suggests allocating funds to assist patients seeking abortions with travel costs such as petrol, accommodation, transit, and child care. It requests that lawmakers recompense abortion providers for services provided to people who cannot afford them. Patients from Texas have increased somewhat in California clinics.

If Roe v. Wade is repealed, how many people will go to California for abortions is uncertain. Abortion data are not collected or reported in California. In 2017, 132,680 abortions were conducted in California, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Experts predict that a large inflow of persons from neighboring states will “certainly disrupt the abortion service network.”

Moreover, a new study begs California lawmakers to assist abortion clinics in expanding their personnel to prepare for an influx of patients seeking the procedure from other states. California abortion opponents hope to encourage women not to get abortions. “We will never stop working to change hearts and minds and provide genuine assistance and services to people experiencing unintended pregnancies,” Keller said.
