California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) recently launched a billboard campaign using a Bible verse to support abortion in pro-life states.
Newsom, who’s running for reelection this November, posted images of the billboards on social media last Thursday. The signs will be put up in Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and four other states where abortion is restricted or prohibited altogether.
“To any woman seeking an abortion in these anti-freedom states: CA will defend your right to make decisions about your health,” Newsom’s tweet reads in part.
The Democratic governor also tagged several Republican governors, such as Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, in his post of a billboard image that reads: “Need an abortion? California is ready to help.”
According to The Christian Post, the billboard includes the latter portion of the greatest commandments found in Mark 12:31, which reads, “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.”
