SACRAMENTO, California (LifeSiteNews) – California’s Governor Gavin Newsom has described his $125 million budget expanding access to abortion as “pro-life.”

Following the leak of a majority opinion by conservative Justice Samuel Alito for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organizationwhich concerns Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, an opinion that suggests Roe. v. Wade could be overturned, Gov. Newsom announced a move to promote abortion in California. 

The $125 million “Reproductive Health Package,” designed to make California even more attractive to abortion seekers in anticipation of a potential overturning of Roe v. Wade, was announced May 11.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has told Nancy Pelosi, a pro-abortion Democrat, not to present herself for Holy Communion. 

The archbishop is doing this to not only protect our Lord from sacrilege, but also to call Nancy Pelosi to repent from the grave sin of promoting abortion and from the sacrilegious communions that follow.

Archbishop Cordileone will now encounter sustained pressure to roll-back his decision, so we must stand with him today.

SIGN and SHARE this petition to stand with Archbishop Corileone as protects our Lord and Nancy Pelosi from further sacrilegious communions. 

The Eucharist is the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ and no Catholic who has committed a mortal sin is to receive Holy Communion until confessing that sin in the Sacrament of Confession.

Nancy Pelosi's soul is in grave danger, not least because of sacrilegious communions as she continues a career-long crusade in support of killing unborn babies, and so the archbishop has done the most charitable thing possible in calling her to repentance and barring her from Holy Communion until she repents.

We must stand with this brave shepherd today, whom the people of San Francisco are lucky to call their archbishop.

SIGN the petition to support Archbishop Cordileone's brave defense of Our Lord in the Eucharist.

Pelosi said in March that that abortion “isn’t about what is your religious belief” and that “this really gets me burned up, in case you didn’t notice, because, again, I’m very Catholic – devout, practicing, all of that. They would like to throw me out, but I’m not going,” she joked, “because I don’t want to make their day."

What she doesn't understand is that her soul is at risk because of her support for spilling the innocent blood of unborn babies. 

In a letter last month to Pelosi, Archbishop Cordileone made clear that “should you [Pelosi] not [publicly] repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’ or else refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion, I would have no choice but to make a declaration, in keeping with canon 915, that you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.” 

In announcing that the Speaker of the House is barred from Holy Communion, Cordileone made clear that he "will continue to offer up prayer and fasting for you [Pelosi].”

This is the heart of a true shepherd - Cordileone is a father willing to undergo all manner of insults and ridicule from the media and lukewarm Catholics in order to call one of his flock back to the fold.

SIGN the petition today to stand with Archbishop Cordileone as he faces into a storm of criticism.

“California will not stand idly by as extremists roll back our basic constitutional rights; 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,” Newsom declared.


The package also includes “incentives for businesses to relocate and bring jobs to California from anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ+ states.”

Now, however, Newsom’s office has described the bill as “pro-life.” In a statement released May 13, the $127 million package was styled “the Governor’s pro-life agenda.”

Despite the “pro-life” designation from Newsom’s office, the bill includes:

  • Covering Uncompensated Care for the Uninsured. $40 million for grants to reproductive health care providers to offset the cost of providing care to low- and moderate-income individuals who do not have health care coverage for abortion care services.
  • The California Reproductive Justice & Freedom Fund. $15 million for grants to community-based reproductive health, rights, and justice organizations to conduct medically accurate and culturally competent outreach and education on sexual health and reproductive health issues.
  • Comprehensive Reproductive Rights Website. $1 million to develop and maintain a website that provides accurate and updated information to the public on the right to abortion under state law, information about reproductive health care providers, and options for coverage for reproductive health services, including state-funded coverage and programs.
  • Research on the Unmet Needs for Reproductive Health Care Services. $1 million for research regarding the unmet needs for access to reproductive health care services.

Newsom described his wider $300.7 billion “California Blueprint” budget, which includes the pro-abortion “Reproductive Health Package,” as “historic investments.”

“We’re doubling down on our formula for success and making sure no one is left behind – supporting working families and businesses, tackling climate change, expanding health care access, making our communities safer, and more,” said Newsom.

While gridlock persists in Congress and right-wing fanatics turn statehouses across the country into laboratories of hate and oppression, here in California, we’re putting in the work to grow our economy and implement real, inclusive policy change to create a brighter future for all.

Newsom doubled down on his styling of the funding as “pro-life,” in a tweet linking increased gun law, promotion of LGBT ideology and “health for all” to the term “pro-life.”


The deep-blue state’s commitment to abortion-on-demand is nothing new; this year, the state legislature has seen bills to allow nurse practitioners to commit abortions without the supervision of an actual physician and potentially even effectively legalize infanticide. The “Reproductive Health Package” does, however, highlight the fact that the pro-life movement’s work would be far from over in a post-Roe world.
