Shannon Grove (born March 18, 1965) is an American politician currently serving in the California State Assembly. She is a Republican representing the 34th district, encompassing parts of Kern County. Prior to being elected to the state assembly, she was the chief executive officer of an employment agency.

Grove is a graduate of Arvin High School in Arvin, California.

On June 1, 2015, at the California ProLife Legislative Banquet held in Sacramento, California, Grove suggested that if the drought-stricken state would only adopt laws restricting abortions, like Texas, God would make it rain. “Texas was in a long period of drought until Governor Perry signed the fetal pain bill. It rained that night. Now God has His hold on California”, Grove said.[1][2]
