SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Governor Gavin Newsom took a step Friday to support women’s rights to have an abortion and even indicated women can come to California to have one if they want.

Newsom signed Friday what he calls a “Proclamation on Reproductive Freedom.” He says it reaffirms the state’s commitment to protecting women’s reproductive choices, educates Californians about their rights to reproductive freedom, and welcomes women to the state to exercise that right.

Among other things, the proclamation talks about reproductive services already available to California women, including state-funded abortion services for low-income women.

The full text of the proclamation can be found here.

In a joint statement with Washington’s and Oregon’s governors, Newsom also stated that other states need to review their state’s laws on “reproductive freedom” and create laws that ensure those rights.

“In the absence of federal leadership on this issue, states must step up and put in place their own protections – both in statute and in their state constitutions, and through the expansion of family planning and education – to defend every American’s right to reproductive freedom,” write California Governor Gavin Newsom, Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Washington Governor Jay Inslee. “Roe is settled law, but newly enacted and clearly unconstitutional laws in a handful of states compel our states to act now to reaffirm longstanding commitments to safeguard the fundamental rights of women.”

The full text of that letter can be found here.

    California the murder state.

    The time has long passed for a civil war.

      I’m right there with you.

  2. MathPhile says:

    This pathetic fool keeps some of the worse killers in history alive on Death Row, against the will of the people…yet advertises himself as a killer of the unborn. Amazing !

  3. Dennis Roach says:

    Thus spake the evil department store dummy brought to life by the frightful denizens of the coast of California!

  4. People say there is a RACE problem. People say this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY and ONLY into White countries.

    People say the only solution to the RACE problem is if ALL and ONLY White countries “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against White people, Anti-Whites agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  5. The USA is self-destructing. I give us about 20 years !

  6. Jack Inmanz says:

    Come one, come all. Get your abortion, then get high and take a dump on the sidewalk. California, liberal paradise.

    Satan himself. I can’t wait for The Big One to set that insane asylum called California out to sea!

    “C’mon down, we’ll kill your babies – we love humanity, but we HATE people!” -democRats

  10. Time for Newsome to make it mandatory for all men to take spermacide prior to sex to prevent abortions.

  11. Mark Mullins says:

    America’s destination spot for infanticide, the land of fruits and nuts should be proud.

  12. J Dc says:

    just wondering why in this day and age a woman would think killing a baby is your right to “reproductive freedom” or “woman’s health care”.

  13. Bill Clinton, you need to move to California too. It’s your dream world

  14. “Reproductive freedom” means the freedom to reproduce, not cold-blooded murder.

  15. Vox Veritas says:

    Democrats = Party of Death

    California, Virginia, and New York = States of Death.

    (Notice the overlap between Sanctuary States and States of Death.)

  16. John Navyveteran says:

    In California, murderers don’t get executed, just innocent babies.

  17. The State filled with illegals, street people, baby killers, and the highest taxes and debt in the country. What Dem wouldn’t want to call it home?

  18. Why not? California – the state that won’t execute the guilty, but come on in and we’ll execute the innocent! Crazy.

  19. Bob K. Wahler says:

    Shouldn’t he be welcoming ANYONE who wants an abortion?

    I mean, who is he, by progressive standards, to presume that only a woman would want an abortion?

  20. Steve Browne says:

    Euphemistic “Reproductive Freedom” is not the issue. Women can reproduce all they like. The issue is the baby’s freedom to live.
