Abortion Sanctuary State: Gov. Newsom Vows to ‘Fight Like Hell’ After Leaked Roe v. Wade Decision
California is promoting ‘abortion tourism’
“The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court,” Politico reported Monday.
The leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft decision is momentous for several reasons and may be a first in Supreme Court history as no draft decision in the modern history of the court has been leaked while a case was still pending. Attorneys and former Supreme Court clerks are calling for a full investigation into the stunning leak.
But the reaction to the impending decision was mass hysteria by abortion proponents and activists.
Almost immediately, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a father of four, jumped on the band wagon: “Our daughters, sisters, mothers, and grandmothers will not be silenced,” Newsom tweeted. The world is about to hear their fury. California will not sit back. We are going to fight like hell.”
By kicking the abortion issue down to the states, daughters, sisters, mothers, and grandmothers will hardly be silenced, especially in California and other blue states.
The Governor who shut down California’s beaches and legendary tourist attractions, churches, bars and restaurants 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.
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?
If the Supreme Court does overturn Roe v. Wade and send it back to states to individually decide, Newsom is likely to sign Senate Bill 1142 by Sen. Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) and Sen. Anna Caballero (D-Merced), to establish the “Abortion Practical Support Fund,” which would require the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls to administer the fund to provide grants to assist low income pregnant women or others who “face other financial barriers with access to abortions in California.
Sen. Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) described her bill as providing “philanthropic dollars for abortion services for low-income Californians and for out-of-state residents.” Skinner refers to abortion services as “reproductive care.”
California Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego), Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) and Governor Gavin Newsom released a joint statement:
“California will not stand idly by as women across America are stripped of their rights and the progress so many have fought for gets erased. We will fight. California is proposing an amendment to enshrine the right to choose in our state constitution so that there is no doubt as to the right to abortion in this state. We know we can’t trust the Supreme Court to protect reproductive rights, so California will build a firewall around this right in our state constitution. Women will remain protected here.”
It’s interesting that Atkins, Rendon and Newsom call abortion a “right,” when that is the crux of the legal issue, according to Alito’s draft decision.
“Roe v. Wade, the radical decision that took the abortion debate away from the American people, has myriad legal, scientific, and constitutional critics. Even abortion supporters complained about its weaknesses, as Alito mentions in his draft opinion,” the Federalist reported. “‘[W]ielding nothing but ‘raw judicial power,’ the Court usurped the power to address a question of profound moral and social importance that the Constitution unequivocally leaves for the people,’ Alito wrote in the draft opinion.”
