Gavin Newsom targeting Arizona women to boost California’s ABORTION TOURISM
04/29/2024 // Olivia Cook // Views

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is set to propose a legislative measure aimed at facilitating abortion services for residents of neighboring Arizona.

The proposed bill intends to streamline the licensing process for Arizona-based abortion providers looking to extend their services to California. This initiative comes in response to the recent affirmation by the Arizona Supreme Court of a law from 1864 that effectively restricts access to abortions in the state.

"We’re now doing that as it relates to being a good neighbor – not just to those that seek reproductive care and reproductive freedom, but also to our neighbors, particularly in Arizona," said Newsom. "We’ve got some ideas to help those that seek to get their care in California to have their back as well." (Related: Newsom calls on Florida women to come to California for abortions after passage of six-week abortion ban in Sunshine State.)

Newsom underscored the importance of aiding neighboring states in accessing reproductive care–particularly in light of recent developments in Arizona's abortion laws. The proposal aims to assist individuals seeking abortion services in California, including those affected by the restrictions imposed in Arizona.

Newsom's office has indicated that further details regarding the legislation will be forthcoming. It is anticipated that the bill will be introduced in the statehouse by members of the California Legislative Women's Caucus.

Collaboration between Newsom's office and Arizona officials, including Gov. Katie Hobbs and Attorney General Kris Mayes, has been reported in the development of this legislation.

Mayes has informed medical providers in Arizona that abortions can be performed until June 8th, the earliest possible date for the implementation of the 1864 abortion ban.

Concerns raised about the effectiveness of Newsom's proposal

Dr. Gabrielle Goodrick of Camelback Family Planning, an abortion clinic in Phoenix, expressed doubts about its effectiveness in addressing the needs of Arizonans. She pointed out logistical challenges faced by patients – depending on their economic situation – such as travel and childcare arrangements, which may hinder access to out-of-state abortion services.

"I just don't think it's realistic to think that that's going to help Arizonans. I hate to be the bearer of bad news," said Goodrick. "Arizona doctors could go to clinics that are already established in California, but again, that doesn't solve the problem of our patients getting to California."

Goodrick noted that a lot of providers in Arizona have families in the state, and having to uproot their practices to another state just to provide abortions is not a feasible plan.

"If you're, you know, 'on access,' you don't have good childcare, your car can't drive across the desert, it's not reliable enough, you have to bring someone with you if you're going to be getting a surgical abortion, so you have to have two people off work," said Goodrick. "So, it's logistics."

Questions have also arisen regarding the specifics of expedited licensing for abortion providers and the accompanying regulatory framework.

Furthermore, Cathi Herrod, president of the nonprofit the Center for Arizona Policy, has also raised concerns about ensuring the health and safety of Arionan women seeking abortion services in California. Herrod expressed apprehension regarding the potential risks of the proposed legislation.

"Will California really look out for the health and safety of women seeking an abortion?" asked Herrod. "What will they require for licensing or credentials for an abortion provider? So very concerned that once again, we see California's governor promoting abortion at all cost and not really caring about women's health."
