News, Newsom signs 13 abortion protection and reproductive health bills : detailed suggestions and opinions about Newsom signs 13 abortion protection and reproductive health bills .
Gov. Gavin Newsom signed 13 abortion protection and reproductive health bills Tuesday, codifying key parts of California’s campaign to counter the effects of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
The newly signed laws also set the stage for a November vote to enshrine abortion rights directly into California’s Constitution under Proposition 1.
Newsom’s signatures were expected after the governor advocated for many of the measures and come after California launched a publicly funded website this month to make it easier for those seeking to end their pregnancy to find services and financial assistance. The state announced the website — at abortion.ca.gov — the same day that Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina pushed for a nationwide abortion ban after 15 weeks of pregnancy with rare exceptions.
