California funds abortion ads

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Thursday that his campaign spent $10 million on 18 pro-abortion billboards in states with pro-life laws. The ads are in Indiana, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Texas. They say things like “Texas doesn’t own your body” and point to a website with information about abortion access in California. In his statement announcing the billboards, Newsom told any woman seeking an abortion to “come to California.”

Is California making abortion tourism easy? California launched a new website Tuesday using $1 million in state funds to promote the state’s abortion access. The site includes a section on how to receive “reproductive health care” and abortions in California even if a woman lives across the country. The state budget includes $200 million for promoting abortion in California. Pro-life groups in the state argue that public funds shouldn’t be used to promote abortion and that more pressing issues need funding.
