Bay Area Reacts to SCOTUS Overturning Roe v. Wade

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that established the constitutional right to abortion in the U.S. in 1973.

The 6-3 votes allows states to determine abortion rights from now on, unless Congress acts.

Roe v. Wade has ensured the right to an abortion for nearly 50 years and the Bay Area is determined to defend a person’s right to choose for at least 50 more years.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, San Francisco Supervisor Matt Haney, California Attorney General Rob Bonta, and California Governor Gavin Newsom all took to Twitter to express opinions and commit to defending abortion rights.
