As an organization that promotes women in the legal profession and in our local community, the Women Lawyers of Santa Cruz County support a woman’s right to choose.


“The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. … When government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for her own choices.”
