Bid to ‘future proof’ US state against threats to women’s abortion rights

The governor of California has pledged to use the state’s record-breaking $300bn budget to “future proof” it against threatened national changes in abortion access and gun safety laws.

With the US Supreme Court poised to possibly overturn the Roe V Wade legislation that gives women a constitutional right to an abortion, Gavin Newsom pledged to do “everything we can” to ensure protection of women’s rights in his state.
