California: Proposition 1

California’s Proposition 1 would amend California’s constitution to explicitly protect abortion. Its text reads: “The state shall not deny or interfere with an individual’s reproductive freedom in their most intimate decisions, which includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and their fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives.” Regardless of the results of the ballot measure, abortion will remain legal in California because it is protected by the state Supreme Court and California law.

Polls say that Proposition 1 is very popular in California with 69% of likely voters in favor of it according to the Public Policy Institute of California.
