California Family Alliance is pushing back against abortion advertisements.
- Pro-life group California Family Alliance released a video titled “This Is Your Neighbor” featuring Gavin Newsom and an unborn child.
- The group is responding to billboards put up in states with restrictive abortion laws that advertise abortions to mothers, welcoming them into the Golden State to terminate their pregnancies.
- “Last month, California Governor Gavin Newsom launched pro-abortion billboards in 7 states that have restrictive abortion laws,” California Family Alliance said in the video description. “The billboards advertise abortion.ca.gov, a state-run website inviting women in pro-life states to visit California to end their pregnancies.”
- California Family Alliance pointed to Newsom’s use of scripture as particularly frustrating, saying, “As a deeply perverted justification advertising abortion, Newsom corrupts the words of Jesus in Mark 12:31, posting ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these’ on billboards in Mississippi and Oklahoma.”
DETAILS FROM THE VIDEO:
- The video shows Newsom talking about his abortion-advertising billboards in politically conservative states saying he is “proud to be able to put those billboards up.”
- Several of the signs were included in the video, and the verse of scripture included Mark 12:31, which says, “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.”
- The video then goes on to show images of babies in the womb before saying, “Governor Newsom, this is your neighbor,” implying that children in the womb ought to be considered one’s neighbor too.
- The video closes by saying, “Love your neighbor, let them live.”
- Newsom announced several weeks ago that billboards advertising abortion had gone up in seven states, including Texas, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina.
- The California governor even went so far as to tag state governors, announcing the billboards and sharing images of the advertisements for abortions in their home states.
