Survey: Many Inland residents support SCOTUS decision ending abortion rights
INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) – Opposition to the Supreme Court decision striking down Roe v Wade varies across California. But, a survey found those in the Inland Empire expressed some of the least opposition.

More than six in ten Californians oppose overturning Roe v. Wade. However, the exact levels of support varies.

The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) found opposition ranging from 62% in the Inland Empire to 81% in the San Francisco Bay Area. Opposition rises sharply as educational attainment increases (61% high school only, 73% some college, 83% college graduate). Opposition is lowest among Latinos than among other racial/ethnic groups.

While opposition is similar among men and women, those with children 18 or younger in the household are 10 points less likely to oppose overturning Roe.

In addition, most Californians have expressed concern about other states making it too difficult to get an abortion, and California is preparing to assist women from other states who may see their access to abortion services limited. Many political observers expect more legislation, a possible influx of out-of-state patients and changes for health care providers.
