While California governor Gavin Newsom has done his best to turn the Golden State into the “Gruesome State” through myriads of pro-abortion measures, not even Californians can truly stomach late-term abortion. As evidenced by a recent Los Angeles Times article, the virtue-signaling elites in Beverly Hills clearly aren’t immune to the horrors of these ghoulish procedures, proving America isn’t as pro-abortion as the media would have you believe. Here’s what you need to know about this story:
Despite clear support for abortion — demonstrated through municipal protests of the Dobbs v. Jackson decision and pro-abortion city council resolutions — residents of The Hills apparently aren’t too keen on sharing their turf with a late-term abortion facility.
According to a new lawsuit, a facility committing abortions beyond 24 weeks (approximately five and a half months) was supposed to open in the city. However, the affiliate of DuPont Clinic (an abortion facility based in Washington D.C.) bringing the suit against Beverly Hills claims the city “colluded and conspired” with pro-life activists to force the business out. Lawsuit claims include that city officials, including the mayor, pressured the building landlord to back out of the lease, held clandestine meeting with anti-abortion groups, and made promises that the city “would stop DuPont from opening.”
While city officials have denied the allegations, time will tell what the evidence finds to be true — and could it be correct that Beverly Hills residents didn’t want this abortion facility in their backyard?
While the mainstream media spreads the false message that Americans, particularly our youth, are largely pro-abortion — as an example, see this recent NPR story on California youths lamenting pro-life laws in the states they’ll attend college in — polling shows that the majority of Millennials and Gen Z do not support abortion without limit. According to a 2023 YouGov-Vinea poll released by Students for Life of America (SFLA), nearly 70% of this demographic believe abortion should be limited in all or some circumstances. Additionally, this number is steadily growing with an increase of 14% since 2022.
The survey also found that 45% of Millennials and Gen Z stated that their abortion opinions could be modified with more information…which is what may be occurring in California as the reversal of Roe v. Wade and subsequent pro-life action across the country produce food for thought.
SFLA California and Nevada Regional Coordinator Tristan DeZonia said that he’s seen this in his own work in the state to change hearts and minds on abortion. He stated:
“I’ve learned that many Californians are not well represented by their state officials as I’ve spoken to many who are staunchly pro-life or at the very least uncomfortable with abortion through all nine months. This case in Beverly Hills is an excellent example. Even for those who are pro-abortion, this level of abortion extremism is not something they want in their backyard.”
No matter when or how abortions are committed (whether through dismemberment, starvation, cardiac arrest, poison, suffocation, etc.), it is always cruel and inhumane — but it is important to the pro-life movement that Californians are uncomfortable with abortion at some point. This means that the state isn’t the stronghold the abortion lobby wants us to believe and that we have a foot in the door for our work.
A big thank you to The Hills for showing the abortion lobby how out of step they are with the American people!
