According to a report from Fox News, California Governor Gavin Newsom last week signed bills limiting other states’ ability to investigate abortions performed in the Golden State.
“Newsom last week signed a series of bills designed to shield California state law enforcement officers, medical providers, and tech companies from complying with subpoenas or cooperating with investigations from out-of-state entities related to any abortions that occur legally in California,” Fox reports.
“An alarming number of states continue to outlaw abortion and criminalize women, and it’s more important than ever to fight like hell for those who need these essential services,” the Democrat said in a press release.
“Today’s bold and comprehensive actions provide reassurance to all that California is a Reproductive Freedom state and all are welcome to seek the care they want or need here in California,” said Jodi Hicks, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California.
