*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***
Today, I was in D.C. as the US Supreme Court heard oral arguments in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates vs. Becerra. This case is about the FACT Act, a California law that requires facilities to provide factual, neutral information about their health care services and medical providers, so all women have access to the full range of health care options available to them.
Under the FACT Act, certain health facilities must disclose to patients if there is no licensed medical professional providing information or care, and others must provide a simple notice about access to comprehensive, free or reduced-price reproductive care.
The FACT Act was passed by the Legislature to reflect California’s values. That’s why I’m fighting to defend it in the highest court in the land.
You can see some of the coverage surrounding the hearing today here, here and here.
I will continue to fight for access to reproductive health care for all California women, regardless of their income. I hope you’ll join me!
Standing with you,
Becerra for Attorney General
