Contributing sentiments towards policy:

49% : The governor reiterated that abortion is still legal and accessible in California as "a fundamental freedom."
43% : The legal saga that has unfolded over mifepristone -- one of two drugs commonly used for medication abortions in the U.S. -- has caused concern in California, where access to abortion is a constitutional right under state law.
26% :The Supreme Court finds itself immersed in a new fight involving abortion less than a year after conservative justices reversed Roe v. Wade and allowed more than a dozen states to effectively ban abortion outright.
25% : "I think we need to realize that this is another step toward Republicans trying to put into law a national ban on abortion," said Lee in an interview with KQED.
