Assembly candidate speaks out on the fall of Roe V. Wade

– State Assembly Candidate Dawn Addis and Morro Bay City Council Member Dawn Addis released the following statement in response to the national news of the Supreme Court Overturning Roe V. Wade. 

On June 24, 2022 the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, ending federal protections for abortion care. In the wake of this decision, millions of people will lose access to critical healthcare services.

“This couldn’t be more devastating,” said Addis, who is a Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund Board Member and co-founder of the Women’s March in San Luis Obispo. “I want to let people know that we are in this together and I am committed to action. While abortion remains available to patients on the Central Coast, and in California, we are poised to lose access across 26+ states. These attacks will disproportionately affect communities of color and those with less economic means. We cannot be silent. Make no mistake, we are under attack. This is precisely the time to continue the work. We must make our voices and our votes heard. I will do everything I can to defend the rights of people everywhere to access care.”

On Jan. 25, 2022 the Morro Bay City Council passed a resolution supporting Roe in a 4-1 vote. About the resolution Addis said, “Reproductive care is an urgent need for people in Morro Bay and across the Central Coast. The onslaught of attacks on reproductive care threatens our entire community. Even in a state that has historic protections, it’s up to us to make sure access is never rolled back.” Addis is the council member who brought forward the resolution and made the case for her city to declare its commitment to welcoming all people including those who see reproductive freedom and care.
