The California Governor signed 12 abortion bills into law on Tuesday, codifying efforts to create a sanctuary state for abortion rights.
Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 1142, which will use taxpayer dollars to recruit out-of-state women to come to California and get an abortion. Newsom signed Senate Bill 2223, effectively decriminalizing any kind of abortion before or after pregnancy. Newsom signed Senate Bill 245, which will eliminate out-of-pocket costs for abortions. These bills will cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars.
"Gavin Newsom is waging a war on human dignity, the value of human life, and the precious gift of children. The California Governor has defiled the sanctity of human life -- and the millions of Christians across the state will remember that..." said Tanner DiBella, President of the American Council.
On November 8th, Proposition 1, the State Constitutional Amendment to codify abortion at any point in pregnancy, is on the ballot. The American Council is urging churches, religious leaders, and community members to speak up and defeat these efforts.
