Governor Newsom Signs Legislation Strengthening Access to Reproductive Health Care & Lifts up California Future of Abortion Council

Sacramento, CA...In the face of unprecedented attacks on women’s health care and reproductive rights throughout the country, Governor Gavin Newsom today announced the Administration’s participation in a new advisory group, the California Future of Abortion Council, to advance the state’s leadership on reproductive freedom and signed legislation furthering the state’s commitment to ensuring access to essential reproductive and sexual health care services. The legislation will protect the privacy of patients seeking sensitive health care services, including reproductive health care, and create new safeguards to protect patients and providers from harassment.





“California has been a leader in protecting access to sexual and reproductive rights, but as we’ve seen recently with unprecedented attacks on these rights, we can and must do more,” said Governor Newsom. “I applaud the establishment of the California Future of Abortion Council and look forward to its important work to advance our state’s leadership on this vital issue. I’m proud today to sign these two bills that demonstrate our dedication to strengthening and further protecting access to reproductive health care services in California.”

AB 1356 by Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan (D-Orinda) increases penalties for current crimes under the California Freedom of Access to Clinic Act and updates online privacy laws and peace officer training related to anti-reproduction-rights offenses. It creates new offenses arising from recording or photographing patients or providers within 100 feet of the entrance to a reproductive health services facility.

AB 1184 by Assemblymember David Chiu (D-San Francisco) protects the privacy rights of people receiving sensitive health care services, including reproductive health care and gender-affirming care, by ensuring patient information is kept confidential if they are not the primary policyholder for their health insurance.

This action comes in the wake of attacks on sexual health care and reproductive rights around the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court’s failure to block Texas’ ban on abortion after six weeks. California is a national leader on reproductive and sexual health protections and rights, and Governor Newsom’s actions today make clear that the state will remain a haven for all Californians, and for those coming from out-of-state seeking reproductive health services here. The Administration’s participation in the new “California Future of Abortion Council” – launched by Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC), NARAL-Pro Choice CA, Black Women for Wellness, ACCESS Reproductive Justice, and National Health Law Program (NHelp) – will work in collaboration with researchers, advocates, policy makers, providers, patients and key constituents to identify potential challenges that currently exist or may arise, and recommend solutions that will continue the state’s reproductive freedom leadership.

In 2019, Governor Newsom signed a Proclamation on Reproductive Freedom, reaffirming California’s commitment to protecting women’s reproductive choices. The Governor has advanced investments to expand access to reproductive and sexual health care and signed multiple bills protecting reproductive freedom, including SB 374 earlier this year and SB 24 and AB 1264 in 2019.

I believe in a women's right to chose!! It is between her, her doctor and God. Period end of story.

However, Celebrating the death of another human being like the left does is just creepy. What are they a death cult?

      Well, well. Let’s not think about our future and our children’s well-being!!! Let’s get political and let the government think for us. On drugs, have family history (glycoma, diabetic, mental issues, etc) please, don’t have children. Untwist the brain and vote for our future, the past is history! Thank you very much…

        I couldn't agree with you more. Like you, I've been giving my children ivermectin. Mix that paste into a little applesauce and even the newborn will eat it.

      I have a family member that is about as far left as they come. Vagina hat and all a few years ago. She had an abortion years ago in college so she could finish.

      Every year on the anniversary she has a very hard time as although she has two kids now she always wonders what her third one would be like now.

      Yes it should be legal and a woman's choice. But it seems we gloss over the real pain and at times a lifetime of suffering that "choice" makes.

      I wish we could actually talk about it as humans and not political operatives.

        I had an abortion at 18 and it was the best decision I could have made. I’m a mother now and I don’t have a single regret about it.

          I didn’t have the skills or money to raise a child then. Instead I got an education and a husband and had children when it was a good time in my life.

        It is often a very difficult decision for the woman in this situation. But to have a choice is important as opposed to be saddled with a child one has neither the finances or education to support. Calaveras is filled with women like this and even has a term used often for the men who helped create these children but mostly missing or not helpful - baby daddies. And this is the norm the child lives with and thinks is how many families are, so the next generation is created. There often regrets but that makes us human.

    No one is celebrating the deaths of the unborn. Rather, we are applauding the governor's decision to support a woman's right to choose.

            Bottom line, if you are not on birth control then don't spread your legs as this will solve that problem.

                No, if you don't want a child then use birth control and don't put all of the responsibility on the man. Do you even know what birth control is? How about pills, condoms and don't spread your legs.

            Pro choice doesn't mean pro-abortion. And your statement an example of that black and white thinking of the pro-Trump, uninformed and uneducated populace. The truth is often in between and not easily defined. Also the loudest and angriest part of the population though does not reflect the majority.

              I am pro-abortion. It is a necessary medical procedure.

              Vasectomies are reversible- men should get one to prevent pregnancy.

          Difficult to follow your first couple of sentences. Except to say a perfect example of why those young people who leave Calaveras and receive a quality education, never really come home again. Once one experiences a bit of the larger world, it's difficult to live amid such ingrained prejudice and one size fits all thinking.

Ever notice how the Trumpster GOP say I won't take the vaccine because government can't tell me what to do but has no problem doing so with women's reproductive rights. Such an incredible disconnect.
