California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) launched a new abortion website Tuesday, abortion.ca.gov, that will serve as a one-stop shop for those seeking to end their pregnancies, whether they are residents of the state or not, and even if they are illegal aliens.
California just launched a NEW resource for those seeking reproductive care – whether or not you live here.

Newsom has sought to position his state as the alternative to Republican-governed states on social issues, especially in the wake of the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which had no effect on California’s pro-choice laws but reversed the holding in Roe v. Wade (!973) that abortion is a constitutional right. To that end, Newsom has funded some abortion-related travel expenses, and backed a referendum, Proposition 1, to guarantee abortion up to birth.
In a video message, Newsom boasts that the state’s new website will help “those seeking reproductive care, whether you live here or not.” The website itself links to “www.abortionfinder.org,” a service that helps users find a nearby abortion provider.
