SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Standing side by side, with signs in hand, state, federal, and local officials gathered to support Senate Constitutional Amendment 10, which protects abortion and contraception in California's constitution.
During the news conference, County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer shared a story about her choice to have her daughter, adding her concerns about this supreme court ruling.
"We must work to ensure that California law protects the rights of the unborn. And we must emphasize that being pro-life demands more than opposition to abortion. It also means reinvigorating our adoption system, to make sure there are options for women and families who are unable or unwilling, for whatever reason, to take on the responsibilities of parenthood."
