Protect Abortion Rights: Yes on Prop 1
September 14, 2022
Posted by: JCRC Staff
Today, JCRC is thrilled to launch our YES ON PROP 1 campaign.
With alarm over the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, and broad consensus in our Jewish community to support reproductive rights, now is the time to act.
Proposition 1 on the November 2022 ballot would inscribe the right to an abortion and contraception in our California constitution. With so much uncertainty at the federal level, and state-level restrictions and bans taking place, California must take the lead to ensure abortion rights and access.
JCRC's campaign is not only about reproductive rights, but also religious freedom. As a minority faith group, Jewish Americans must stand for religious freedom to ensure our laws do not favor one religious belief over another.
Prop 1 will make Californians more secure, set an example for other states, and send a message to people in need of abortion services that they are welcome in the Golden State.
We cannot be complacent. While surveys show Californians overwhelmingly support abortion rights, we cannot take it for granted this will pass.
