Newsom to Use Tax Breaks to Attract Companies from States That Restrict Abortion

Here is another publicity stunt by the arrogant Gavin Newsom.  Due to high taxes and bad policies, lack of water and energy, businesses are fleeing the State.  Thanks to failed schools, high crime rates and a State mandate to turn our towns into slums, families and workers are fleeing the State.

Newsom actually believes that by offering a few tax dollars, large and small businesses will come to California.  Obviously this is part of his mental meltdown.  Why will then come, he says?  So their employees can kill babies for free in the former Golden State.  This can not be serious.  In a State will a shortage of cops, teachers, nurses and other professionals watch as more people and businesses leave—killing babies is not a reason for a company to move to California.

“California Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday unveiled a proposal for a series of tax incentives in an effort to “provide additional consideration for companies leaving states that have enacted restrictions on reproductive rights and anti-LGBTQ+ laws.”

The proposal would update tax credits, employer grants and other business incentive programs, according to the New York Times.”

Newsom to Use Tax Breaks to Attract Companies from States That Restrict Abortion

California Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday unveiled a proposal for a series of tax incentives in an effort to “provide additional consideration for companies leaving states that have enacted restrictions on reproductive rights and anti-LGBTQ+ laws.”

The proposal would update tax credits, employer grants and other business incentive programs, according to the New York Times.

Newsom’s announcement comes after a leaked majority draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization revealed that the Supreme Court could be poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, returning the question of abortion to the states.

Newsom also proposed nearly doubling his reproductive health funding plan to $125 million, including $40 million for grants to providers to offset the cost of abortions for uninsured women from both inside and outside California. The state has already seen an increase in women seeking abortions since the Texas Heartbeat Act passed last year.

 “California will not stand idly by as extremists roll back our basic constitutional rights,” Newsom said in a statement. “We’re going to fight like hell, making sure that all women — not just those in California — know that this state continues to recognize and protect their fundamental rights.”

“Don’t think for a second this is where it’s going to stop,” Newsom said last week after the SCOTUS leak. “Pay attention, America. They’re coming for you next.”

Newsom’s proposal also comes amid an ongoing battle between Disney and Republicans after the company inserted itself into the conversation around Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, which prohibits instructors from teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms.

Disney has been an outspoken critic of the measure, going so far as to say its “goal as a company” is having the bill “repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts.”

In return, Florida stripped Disney of its “independent special district” status, with Governor Ron DeSantis warning that if the company chose to use its “economic might to attack the parents of my state,” he would treat it as a “provocation” and “fight back.”

Newsom’s proposal could be an invitation to Disney, which plans to relocate roughly 2,000 California positions to a new Florida campus despite LGBT groups’ protests.

Christina Pushaw, a spokeswoman for DeSantis, accused Newsom of “spreading disinformation about other states,” according to the New York Times.

“Florida doesn’t restrict anyone’s rights,” Pushaw told the outlet. “Perhaps fewer businesses and residents would be fleeing California if Governor Newsom would focus on tackling the problems plaguing his own state.”

    I think that the Archbishop of San Francisco should undertake to excommunicate Gavin Newsom who is no Roman Catholic.

  2. So, women from other states can come here to abort their babies, paid for by the CA taxpayer. Why would a business come to CA, pay taxes to help pay for visitors here for abortion only purposes? The CA tax payer already paying for illegal aliens food, housing and medical care, gas at $6-7 a gallon all with no promise we will have electrical power and guaranteed fires that are already happening. Sell all that to a business as reasons to move to Ca?

    I can see everyone rushing to come here. Bad roads, high taxes, rampant crime, thousands of people living on the streets and no water — but hey, you can get an abortion here!
