Life Legal’s new campaign to place pro-life, pro-chastity billboards in strategic areas has gained national media attention.
Our billboards were created in response to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s ad campaign that was intended to lure women to California for free abortions. Newsom’s billboards included the words of Jesus: “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31
We are appalled by this blasphemous use of Scripture.
Governor Newsom, who identifies as a Catholic, will stop at nothing — including profaning the words of Christ — to expand his baby-killing enterprise.
The Governor recently signed a slew of unprecedented abortion laws, including abortion tourism bills that allocate funds for transportation, lodging, and even childcare for out-of-state women to come to California to abort their children. Last month, Life Legal filed the first lawsuit challenging Newsom’s abortion agenda.
Gavin Newsom’s obsession with destroying innocent life is not limited to babies in the womb. He also signed into law AB 2223 — the murderous brainchild of Planned Parenthood — which prohibits criminal or civil prosecution in cases where babies up to one month old are killed “due to causes that occurred in utero.” For example, if a baby survives a “do it yourself” abortion, that baby could be left to die or even intentionally killed — and prosecutors would not be permitted to bring criminal charges. That is not “loving your neighbor.” That is facilitating murder.
Tragically, other states have introduced similar bills that allow infanticide. For example, Minnesota lawmakers are fast-tracking HF 91/SF 70, which repeals long-standing restrictions on abortion, including a law that required babies born alive during abortion to be recognized as human persons and provided with medical care to preserve the babies life and health. The repeal of this law means it will be legal to intentionally kill viable babies born alive during abortion.
Life Legal is working to defeat these laws. We are also challenging California’s barbaric abortion agenda in the courts.
Why does our billboard promote a pro-chastity message?
Planned Parenthood and the abortion cartel have spent decades — and hundreds of millions in tax-payer dollars — to convince women that random sex and abortion are not connected. But the reality is that the vast majority of abortions are performed on women who are unmarried.*

*The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that 86.3% of abortions are performed on unmarried women. The abortion ratio was 46 abortions per 1,000 live births for married women and 412 abortions per 1,000 live births for unmarried women – a nine-fold difference.
