“Need an abortion? California is ready to help,” reads the billboard with a Bible verse at the bottom that reads, ” Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.” The billboard was paid for by the campaign for California’s Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom.
As the ad-hoc committee met inside the Blatt Building on State House grounds Tuesday, protests and rallies went on outside.
Pro-abortion rights groups and pro-life advocates gathered at the capitol to express their beliefs in earshot of the committee. Members of the pro-choice group WREN led protestors in chants as members of pro-life groups like “Liberty and Justice for All” expressed their opinions nearby.
