Newsom Uses Jesus’ Words in Abortion Ad
Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) rolled out billboards in pro-life states encouraging women to travel to California for abortions.
Some of the ads, which went up last week, used Jesus’ words to promote killing pre-born babies.
The billboards appeared in seven pro-life states: Texas, Indiana, Ohio, Mississippi, South Dakota, South Carolina, and Oklahoma. All of these states further restricted abortion after Roe v. Wade was overturned in June.
In Mississippi and Oklahoma, conservative states on the buckle of the Bible Belt, Newsom’s ads feature a reference to Mark 12:31 which reads, “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.”
Notably, the ads omit the greatest commandment told by Jesus in the verse before; “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
The far-Left governor announced the launch of the billboards on Twitter last week.
“NEW: Just launched billboards in 7 of the most restrictive anti-abortion states that explain how women can access care–no matter where they live,” Newsom wrote. “To any woman seeking an abortion in these anti-freedom states: CA will defend your right to make decisions about your own health.

Further, Newsom tweeted at the governors of each of the pro-life states, telling them the ads were coming.
Many of the billboards told women that their state doesn’t “own” their bodies.
The ads encourage women to “learn more at abortion.CA.gov,” a site launched following the overturning of Roe v. Wade designed to attract women to obtain abortions in the state.
In late August, California passed 13 pro-abortion laws, one of which prohibits investigations of the deaths of babies older than 20 weeks gestation.
The billboards were paid for by Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign.
