Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom is taking flak from Christians who are offended by his multi-state billboard campaign that promotes abortion by quoting Jesus.

Last week, Newsom took to Twitter to tout the billboards his gubernatorial campaign is erecting in Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and four other “anti-freedom” states where abortion is restricted or outlawed.

Some versions of the billboards, all of which urge women in such states to come to California to get abortions, advertise the state’s easily obtainable abortions by quoting Mark 12:31, where Jesus says, “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.”


Throughout the posts by Newsom, he tagged several GOP governors such as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves.

Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law & Justice, said in a statement to Fox News Digital, “The idea that Newsom is using the words of Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures, to promote the killing of unborn children as somehow loving and commanded by God is quite frankly disgusting.”

He added, “This is a blatant, political fundraising ploy to boost his own political profile and presidential aspirations. The people are smarter than that. It just won’t work.”

Newsom tweeted, “NEW: Just launched billboards in 7 of the most restrictive anti-abortion states that explain how women can access care–no matter where they live. To any woman seeking an abortion in these anti-freedom states: CA will defend your right to make decisions about your own health.”

“@GregAbbott_TX this will be launching in your state today. @GovHolcomb the people of Indiana will be seeing these as they drive to work today.”

“@tatereeves the people of Mississippi deserve to know they have access to the care you are refusing to provide. This will be launching in your state today. @GovMikeDeWine Ohio will be seeing these billboards starting today.”

“@henrymcmaster the people of South Carolina will be seeing these today. @govkristinoem this will be launching in your state today.”

“@GovStitt this will be going up in your state.”

Live Action responded, “Shameful. Governor Newsom is buying pro-abortion billboards with bible verses in pro-life states.”

Fr Matthew P. Schneider wrote, “I think this has to be one of the worse distortions of a Bible passage I’ve ever seen. Shame on @GavinNewsom & his government. The most basic level of loving your neighbor as yourself is not killing your neighbor, yet that’s exactly what abortion does.”

“This is satanic,” said Fr. Ryan Hilderbrand,

Catholic Answers tweeted, “Imagining the devil in his advertising office at the top of the highest skyscraper in hell giggling to himself as @GavinNewsom uses Jesus’ own words to support killing babies. Notice how the verse ends in ‘these,’ but only lists one commandment. It’s missing the greatest commandment, from the preceding verse: ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength’ (Mark 12:30).”

“Without this verse to ground it, Mk. 12:31—the second-most important—is ready to be twisted into ‘Kill your baby.’ No surprise here. Satan, having no imagination, can only ‘create’ by perverting the good not of his making. Likewise, it seems, for Gavin Newsom. Maybe he could have considered James 1:27: ‘Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.’ But California turns this noble sentiment on its head.”

  1. Hey new-scum….why not invite women who want abortions anytime after a Saturday night special to come to mexifornia, and live there full time instead of just coming for abortions. That way, they would be in place for future abortions on demand. You piece of POND SCUM. God will see to it you never see heaven. You will be sharing a grave cell with soleimani….

  2. Hey Newsome come on out to Ohio pal! Someone would beat your commie ass here real quick! Come to the Valley and talk your shit scumbag!

  3. God has his ways to deal with the Newsom’s of the world… He will get his when he thinks all is well.. For the Sins of the Father, its gonna hurt when the sh.t hits the fan for Gavin.

  4. Tell me Newscumbag what is your faith or religion??
    I remember you stating on Bill Mahaer once that you were so OFfENDED when candidates were asked what their faith was in a presidential debate. Remember that? You are the scum of the Earth and you have ruined my beautiful state. FU

  5. What would’ve happened if Jesus were aborted 2000 years ago, think they’re trying to spiritually abort him now, may Gods will be done upon this earth

  6. If you’re smart enough to travel to a different state for an abortion 👋🏽
    Then you should be smart enough to wear protection so you don’t get pregnant 🤰

  7. God is not mocked. Newsome needs to repent quickly.
    How is it loving to the innocent child to kill it? Jesus is not calling the murder of babies loving in ANY way. In fact, Jesus perfectly obeyed the Ten Commandments, one of which says, You shall not kill.
    Loving your neighbor as yourself includes loving the most vulnerable ones around you by protecting them.

  8. Maybe Newsom should open a Clinic next the Capital so he could see how many take up his invite. Also, what National Billboard Co went to the extreme to do this for Him.
