Democratic governors are banding together to protect abortion in their states. California Governor Gavin Newsom is leading an effort dubbed the Reproductive Freedom Alliance. This organization comprises 22 Democratic governors that will use their power to liberalize abortion access in any way they can. Unfortunately, this group has misplaced priorities. Many of the states represented by these governors are losing population. So shouldn’t they be focused on growing it? And shouldn’t governors use their power to protect the fundamental right to life, affirmed by the Declaration of Independence affirms that we have? Ironically, out of all the things that this important groups of governors can do, it’s ironic that they’ve joined forces that involves the destruction of the next generation of citizens.
