California to Become 'Sanctuary State' for Abortion

The political promise is offered in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court


California unveiled plans to become one of the possible “sanctuary states” for abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

The California Future of Abortion Council, which was founded by Governor Gavin Newsom, is made up of more than 40 abortion providers and advocacy groups. The Council released a list of 45 recommendations Wednesday.

The suggestions included the notion that California should cover the expenses of women traveling from states where abortion has been banned to seek a termination. This would include the cost of the procedure, as well as travel and accommodation.

“We are looking at ways to support that inevitability and looking at ways to expand our protections,” said the council.

New York State Attorney General Letitia James promoted a similar concept this week.

The hopeful candidate for governor thinks her state should “establish a dedicated fund that would help support and provide financial resources to women across the country so that they could continue to make their own reproductive choices.”

Abortion, perhaps more than any other issue, has divided the country for multiple decades.

A new Supreme Court decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade could come as early as next summer. The decision would be the culmination of more than 40 years of conservative activism and would be an historic overturn of the 48-year-old precedent permitting nationwide abortions. 

Wednesday’s report offers an early glimpse of how Democratic-dominated states could respond and how the debate over abortion access would change.

    Good. All of the trashy borty-prone hoes can shuffle to the butcher states and stay there until they finally get to ride the slip n slide into Hell for their wicked shit.

    The other 49 states should cease all trade with California and have our navy blockade their port until they ban it. Abortion is murder period.

    2 things:
    1. I bet the number of psychopaths and serial killers on that council is astronomically high.
    2. Isn’t this the whole point of the court killing Rowe and sending it to the state legislatures to pass their own laws? I mean I find it honestly shocking there hasn’t been a “late term tax payer funded abortion” fund in CA already.

    My guess on how this will go down;

    SCOTUS: we are overturning Rowe as this is not a matter for the courts or federal government to decide and we are leaving this choice up to the state legislatures.

    CA: YEAH WELL FUCK YOU IF YOU MAKE ABORTIONS ILLEGAL WE WILL JUST MAKE IT LEGAL IN OUR STATE AND FUCK YOU YOU FACSIST NAZI RACIST MYSOGINST

    SCOTUS: ………….?

    If CA wants to tax their people even more to pay for those outside of their system, well they are already used to it with illegal aliens I guess.
