Make Voices Heard for Reproductive Choice – Letter to the Editor

To the Editor

On 6 May 2022, the Alameda County Council of the League of Women Voters, which consists of the Leagues of Alameda, Berkeley Albany Emeryville, Eden Area, Fremont-Newark-Union City, Oakland, and Piedmont issued the following statement in response to the leaked draft Supreme Court Opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

If this draft opinion holds, it would overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey that have protected pregnant people’s rights to bodily autonomy for decades. Generations before us have fought tirelessly to gain and protect the rights we have today. We are in a fight to make sure that everyone has the power to control their own bodies, lives, and futures.

True democracy depends on equal rights for all people. Losing our right to reproductive choice would open the door to the loss of other fundamental rights like marriage equality, contraception, and gender-affirming care. We stand with our allies and Leagues across the nation, to protect every individual’s access to reproductive health care. We urge our members to show up and make their voices heard for reproductive choice.

President, League of Women Voters of Alameda
