    Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom continued to pick fights with red states, launching a billboard blitz Thursday advertising the Golden State's emphatic embrace of abortion.

    Newsom's latest campaign includes 18 billboards in Indiana, Mississippi, Ohio, Texas, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Oklahoma, all of which have taken action to protect the lives of the unborn. The billboards urge women who want abortions to come to California and include a web address that lists all of the state's clinics.

    "Texas doesn't own your body. You do," declares a woman in handcuffs on one of the billboards.

    Another says, "Need an abortion? California is ready to help." It also includes the Bible verse, Mark 12:31: "Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these."

    "Here is my message to any woman seeking abortion care in these anti-freedom states: Come to California," Newsom said Thursday. "We will defend your constitutional right to make decisions about your own health."

    Newsom appears to be bidding to elevate his national profile in preparation for a potential 2024 Democratic presidential run. He also took out a television ad in Florida this year, telling Sunshine State residents their freedoms are being taken away. Additionally, he bought ads in three newspapers in Texas, criticizing Republican Governor Greg Abbott's stance on gun control after the school shooting tragedy in Uvalde, Texas.

    The campaign is likely to have little effect on Republican-led states, where pro-life laws tend to reflect the conservative beliefs of many of the states' residents. Cory Custer, deputy chief of staff for external affairs for Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves (R), said as much.

    "It is very interesting to see Governor Newsom's 2024 primary campaign extend to Mississippi," Custer told Politico. "But we do suspect that most Mississippians will not be interested in what he is selling."

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
