Gavin Newsom just invokes scripture to defend a twisted and wicked act. He claims that helping someone murder a child is “loving your neighbor” as he invokes the Gospel of Mark.
California is now advertising the new abortion push with massive billboards that say “California is here to help” people murder their children. This includes using tax dollars to fund travel for people in states with pro-life laws.
“Want an abortion? California is ready to help,” one billboard states. Beneath the words are the Bible verse Mark 12:21: “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.” It also advertises a new, taxpayer-funded California government website that promotes abortions.
Newsom’s election campaign is paying for pro-abortion billboards in seven states that protect unborn babies from abortion, the governor announced Thursday. They are Texas, Indiana, Mississippi, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota and Oklahoma.
He admitted that his goal is to encourage women to come to California to abort their unborn babies.
“Just launched billboards in 7 of the most restrictive anti-abortion states that explain how women can access care–no matter where they live,” the governor wrote on Twitter. “To any woman seeking an abortion in these anti-freedom states: CA will defend your right to make decisions about your own health.”
As you would expect, the pro life movement is responding. Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America, added her thoughts to the throng:
This makes me sick. Gavin Newsom quoting Scripture ("Love your neighbor as yourself" – Mark 12:31) in his billboard going up in Oklahoma today advertising California as an abortion tourism destination. Simply no words for how twisted this is. https://t.co/Z2d8yOZRCL

She has been running a network known as Her Plan, which actually helps women. They provide medical, social and material support to pregnant and parenting mothers.
The battle in the states will be fierce, but this is likely the most important cultural battle we will fight in our lives.
