Three states — California, Michigan and Vermont — have on the November ballot proposed amendments to their constitutions that would, if passed, guarantee women the right to abortion.
Church Militant's Kristine Christlieb takes a careful look at what California's amendment will do.
Father Bao Thai, rector, Christ Cathedral: "This extreme Prop 1 turns California into the sanctuary state for late-term abortions."
California Catholics are taking the lead in battling an extreme state constitutional amendment permitting abortion up to the moment of birth.
Over the summer, the California Catholic Conference began developing a plethora of educational materials and activities in English, Spanish and Vietnamese opposing the amendment.
Even though 1 in 3 California voters is Catholic, the amendment faces an uphill battle.
Self-proclaimed Catholic Gov. Gavin Newsom is aggressively promoting the amendment, and he envisions the state as an abortion sanctuary.
Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif.: "Yes, this November we'll be advancing a constitutional amendment codifying what we've done in statute and giving people something to be for, proactively, on the ballot as it relates to a constitutional right to privacy."
In September, when likely voters were asked about Prop 1, 69% said they would vote in favor of the amendment, 25% would oppose it and 6% were undecided.
Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif.: "Don't think for a second — don't think for a second — this is where they stop."
In California, pro-abortion Democrats are highly motivated to vote — a trend that recently defeated Kansas' pro-life constitutional amendment.
California has 5.5 million foreign-born eligible voters, more than any other state in the union.
