In this video, I’m going to show you how Governor Newsom’s love for abortion is drving his desire to create a huge industry of abortion tourism. Red state residents are going to be disgusted by what he’s done.
Shockingly, the governor of California begun renting billboards in conservative states to lure abortion tourism. This is a blatant attempt to thumb their nose at those who don’t share their progressive values, and it’s a shameful waste of money. Conservatives will be outraged when they see them popping up everywhere
San Francisco Gate Reports. Newsom’s reelection campaign has rented billboards in six states with abortion bans, escalating the Democrat’s battle with conservative Republican governors and courting a First Amendment challenge in Mississippi.
Ads on the billboards direct women to a California state website, emphasizing that “you do not have to be a California resident to receive abortion services.”
Newsom said in an interview about the billboard campaign. “We want women to know that we have their backs,” “We care, they matter, and we’re not going to turn our backs on them because they’re from another state.”
One advertisement depicts a woman with her hands chained behind her back. “Texas doesn’t own your body. You do,” it reads. Another ad says that “California is ready to help” anyone who needs an abortion, adding a verse from the Gospel of Mark: “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.”
Newsom’s campaign also came out with a video on his twitter account to promote their abortion program.
On Thursday, the ads began appearing in Indiana, Mississippi, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Texas. As a result of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, each state dramatically limited abortion rights. In November, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Texas governors are up for reelection. When contacted for comment, none immediately responded.
After the passage of a ban, Indiana will join Mississippi, South Dakota and Texas in banning most abortions. Both Ohio and South Carolina have temporarily blocked abortion laws after six weeks of pregnancy.
Although voters are worried about crime and high housing prices, Newsom has overwhelmingly led polls against Republican state Sen. Brian Dahle. In the first week of this month, Newsom had raised more than $24 million for reelection, while Dahle had raised less than $500,000.
This is just the latest in a long line of stunts by Gavin Newsom. He seems to think that he can win over voters by being as outrageous as possible. But this kind of behavior only serves to further damage his reputation nationally. I doubt that renting out billboards in red states with abortion bans is going to help him win reelection. In fact, it might do more harm than good.
