Governor Gavin Newsom: Alabama’s Embryo Ruling Represents “War on Women”

Gov. Gavin Newsom: Alabama embryo decision is part of ‘a war on women’

California’s Democratic Governor, Gavin Newsom, has strongly criticized the recent decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, which declared embryos as legally equivalent to people, labeling it as a direct assault on women’s rights.

In an interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press” on Saturday, Newsom emphasized that this move represents more than just a restriction on abortion or travel; it signifies a broader attack on the rights and autonomy of women. He expressed his dismay over the reported contemplation by former President Donald Trump to support a federal abortion ban set at 16 weeks, with certain exceptions.

With a touch of sarcasm, Newsom remarked on Trump’s supposed generosity in including exceptions, questioning the rationale behind choosing the 16-week mark. He derided the lack of seriousness among proponents of such bans, highlighting the arbitrary nature of the timeline.

Furthermore, Newsom cautioned against viewing a 16-week ban as a compromise, suggesting that other Republicans, like Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, would push for even more stringent restrictions. He warned that the trajectory could lead to far-reaching limitations on reproductive rights.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in 2022, numerous states have enacted prohibitive measures against abortion, resulting in a landscape where access to abortion is severely curtailed in over a dozen states, according to NBC News. The issue has sparked debates within the Republican Party, with some advocating for federal restrictions while others remain hesitant or opposed to such measures.
