California Governor Launches Abortion.ca.gov

The Abortion Sanctuary State’s new website to assist out-of-staters with their abortion travel plans

Come to California, visit our “misty Northern California redwood forests to sun-kissed Southern California beaches,” and get an abortion.

California, the Abortion Sanctuary State, has officially created a new website to assist out-of-staters with their abortion travel plans.

“As other states outlaw fundamental reproductive health care and criminalize doctors and patients, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the launch of abortion.ca.gov – providing people both inside and outside of California with information about abortions, their legal rights, where to find providers, how to pay for services and financial assistance, ways to locate wellness and emotional support, and more,” Gov. Newsom’s press release Tuesday morning said.

Abortion.ca.gov. is right next door to the California Board of Accountancy.

Actually, it is not listed yet on the State’s list of state agencies.

As Gov. Newsom said in a new video, “Abortion.ca.gov is a resource for those seeking reproductive care – whether you live in California or not.”

The governor stresses the new website “provides information on your right to abortion.” Only, Roe v. Wade was not a Constitutional right, and Congress never codified the decision in law, the Globe reported following the United States Supreme Court June decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion, and noted, “The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Within minutes of the announcement of the SCOTUS decision, California politicians issued statements full of hyperbole and deceit.

“The Supreme Court is criminalizing women,” said Senate Majority Leader Emeritus Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys). “The majority’s theological bent wants to keep women barefoot and pregnant and is a throwback to when women were property and knew their place. That past is our future if Americans don’t wake up and vote.” Hertzberg is a lawyer.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s press office released a joint statement by governors of California, Oregon and Washington, announcing, “West Coast States Launch New Multi-State Commitment to Reproductive Freedom.”

The “Multi-State Commitment” vows “to defend access to reproductive health care, including abortion and contraceptives, and committed to protecting patients and doctors against efforts by other states to export their abortion bans to our states.”

By August, the California Legislature had 18 bills dedicated to abortion, abortion providers, access to abortion, funding of abortion, licensing of abortion providers, discipline of abortion providers, abortion scholarships, training programs for abortions, abortion research, abortion fairness, paid time off for abortion, Telehealth for abortion, and protections for abortion providers.

California Democrats even passed a Constitutional Amendment to “enshrine the ‘Right to Abortion, Contraception,” following the leaked United States Supreme Court draft decision in which the Court voted to overturn the federal landmark Roe v. Wade abortion decision.

It appears that despite the actual crises in California – water shortage, lack of water storage, wildfires, energy shortage – the Governor is pivoting his focus and your attention to abortion.

“While other states try to prevent people from accessing this critical information or traveling to other states to obtain reproductive health care services, abortion.ca.gov provides information specifically for those coming to California for an abortion,” the Governor said in the press statement.

Because California is now an Abortion Sanctuary State.  “Abortion is legal, safe and accessible here in California – whether or not you live here, know that we have your back. As Republican states continue rolling back fundamental civil rights and even try to prevent people from accessing information online or crossing state lines for care, you’re welcome here in California and we’ll continue to fight like hell for you,” said Governor Newsom.

The Governor who shut down California’s beaches and legendary tourist attractions, churches, bars, restaurants, schools and small businesses as a response to the COVID pandemic, is now promoting abortion tourism, inviting tourists to visit California and get an abortion if their own state has abortion restrictions, the Globe reported in March.

Gov. Gavin Newsom and the State Legislature are offering taxpayer funds to help out-of-state residents obtain abortions, as well as legalizing infanticide through recently amended legislation. According to the bill’s author, Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, the bill is about “reproductive justice, pregnancy criminalization, reproductive freedom, and pregnancy loss.”

Given California’s burgeoning new industry, shouldn’t Gov. Newsom be happy with the Supreme Court since there will be no federal restrictions on abortion?

Here are some of the highlights of Gov. Newsom’s first-in-the-nation Abortion Sanctuary State:

  • This year’s state budget includes more than $200 million in additional funding for reproductive health care services.
  • The Governor signed an executive order preventing medical records, patient data and other information from being shared by state agencies in response to inquiries or investigations brought by other states or individuals within those states looking to restrict abortion access, and announced the Governor’s policy of declining to extradite any person in California sought by another state for lawful abortion services provided in California.
  • Governor Newsom signed legislation eliminating copays for abortion care services and signed into law a legislative package to further strengthen access and protect patients and providers.
  • In November, California voters will have an opportunity to amend the state’s constitution to enshrine the right to an abortion following the introduction of a constitutional amendment by state leaders.

Notably, the abortion.ca.gov website says, “Under California law, anyone in California who is pregnant has a legal right to choose to have an abortion before viability.” We will see if the governor is able to redefine “viability,” which the state explains: “A pregnancy becomes viable when a doctor determines that the fetus could live outside the uterus without extreme medical measures.”

Thankfully Abortion.ca.gov got that right. Now we need to have a serious discussion about Gov. Newson offering California taxpayer funds to pay for the out-of-state abortions. As a Globe reader recently asked, “How about reducing CA taxpayers bills instead of paying for every nonresidents abortions, healthcare, food, lodging and more? How about giving taxpayers their money back instead of spending it on every issue, person, reason that does not benefit the California residents who pay to live there?”

  1. Actually feeling a bit nauseated to read about the giddy preparations for our one-time Golden State to be an “Abortion Sanctuary State,” about “abortion tourism,” and about the introduction of a new government website, “abortion.ca.gov.”
    Get ready for EVERYTHING Gov Gav comes out with now to sound exactly like it’s a sick joke. The sicker the better, if Gav and his backers have their way, I guess.
    But it’s REAL, folks!
    And now we’re left to dicker with Newsom about the extent to which we can keep taxpayers from having to pay for it all. Let THAT sink in.

    1. Possibly most offensive of all is that California under Gov Gruesome does not just grudgingly accommodate abortions with the hope and expectation that they will be rare. Instead he pushes them, encourages and embraces them, it seems to me. “Leaning in,” in Newsom-speak. The more the better, apparently, which is as sick as it gets.
      Do you really think Gov Gav gives a rat’s rear end about women, or their health, or what’s good for them, or their babies, or actually any of us humans who live in California? Or anywhere else, for that matter? Our lengthy scientific observation over the years tells us that he DOES NOT.
      Guess who Gavin Newsom cares about?

  2. Because THIS is the most IMPORTANT issue facing the State of California….

    Not only does this dumbass LOOK like “The Joker” out of the Batman series, he ACTS like him, too….

    #Malevolent

  3. “According to the bill’s author, Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, the bill is about “reproductive justice, pregnancy criminalization, reproductive freedom, and pregnancy loss.””

    Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks is one SICK puppy… but she’ll pay for her transgressions one day, for eternity…

    1. Appalling that Newsom will use taxpayer money for this horrific procedure! Haven’t Californians had enough of this buffoon by now. His desire to be a sanctuary State is destructive.

  4. “Reproductive health care, reproductive freedom, reproductive rights, reproductive justice…” Interesting phrasing considering that an abortion ends reproduction. It’s the exact opposite of reproduction. While those of us with any common sense see Orwell’s 1984 as a warning, Democrats continue to use it as a playbo

  6. Sanctuary-
    [Definition of sanctuary
    noun, plural sanc·tu·ar·ies.
    a sacred or holy place.]

    There is nothing sacred about abortion; also known as taking of away an infant’s life. Where is the refuge for the life of a future son, brother, father, daughter, sister,mother?
    California is not a sacred or holy place.
    Each day we are reminded that evil is working through Gavin Newsom.
    I am with ShowandTell, reading this leaves me nauseated.
    Today is a very sad day for me much like 9-11.

  7. Gavin needs to call up the woke left wing airline executives, and demand that the abortion tourists be flown First Class. Then contact the woke hotel executives, and demand that the abortion tourist be lodged in the Presidential Suites of Five Star hotels. California taxpayers will shuffle them around in limousines so they don’t have to rent cars or take public transportation, and, of course, be given five course meals. Planned Parenthood can give them a diary of the abortion with pictures for the abortion tourists to take back home with them and show family members.

  8. The new abortion.ca.gov slogan soon to be seen on California freeway advisory signs:

    “Get An Abortion. It’s On Us.”

    1. Protect Freedom: I almost wish that would happen. It is suitably shocking and I think actually has the potential of waking some people up.

  9. One of the main principles of the Democrat Party is that they’re built on racism and extermination of black people and minority babies. The vile racist Margaret Sanger was an associate of the Ku Klux Klan and furthered their race-annihilating creeds via Planned Parenthood, who to this day hide behind KKK’s evil principles. Take note of the fact also that Joe Biden is a longtime associate and “friend” and “real segregationist(s)” of the KKK hate group and has eulogized at their funerals, as Hillary Clinton has also done.

  10. This is so incredibly evil. And the fact that are tax dollars are being used to pay for the destruction of human life in its most innocent and helpless form is insufferable. We are ruled over by a cabal of wicked and incompetent demons. And the worst part is that it would appear a majority of my fellow Californians are perfectly fine with this. What has happened to the state that I once loved?

  11. Buckle up NorCal, it won’t be much longer before God’s hand moves against him….
