San Francisco institute travel ban, blacklist against pro-life states, Ben Sasse responds

San Francisco Mayor London Breed and Supervisor Vallie Brown, who authored the ordinance, which not only restricts travel to the U.S. states that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of a fetus, but also declares the city’s decision to refrain from entering into any new contracts with companies that are headquartered in any of the blacklisted states.

Accordingly, nearly half the states in America are included on the blacklist.

“Nine of the states were already on the city’s banned list based on LGBTQ laws that the city deemed to be discriminatory in July,” notes the L.A. Times, confirming there are 22 states impacted from the move.

“Every day in this country, women’s reproductive rights are threatened, and we have to fight back. Just as we restricted spending with states that have laws that discriminate against LGBTQ people, we are standing up against states that put women’s health at risk and that are actively working to limit reproductive freedoms,” Breed said in a statement. “By limiting travel and contracting with certain states, we are sending a clear message to states that disregard the right to abortion.”

The blacklisted states are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Alabama, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas already were on the city administrator’s list due to their LGBTQ laws and policies.

“Progressive cancel culture is dumb,” Nebraska’s Ben Sasse said in a press release. “Most Nebraskans, like a whole bunch of Californians, are pro-life and want to reflect our pro-science, pro-woman, pro-baby beliefs with common-sense laws. Folks in San Francisco are free to disagree, but it’s childish to try to shut down a big cultural debate.”

“Pro-lifers aren’t out to silence the other side – we believe in persuasion,” he continued. “San Francisco progressives can throw a tantrum – Nebraskans will continue to act like grownups.”
