A day after a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion overruling Roe vs. Wade sent shockwaves through the country, Los Angeles mayoral candidate Rick Caruso took to Twitter to vehemently defend his support of abortion rights.
Caruso also vowed to financially support a proposal that Gov. Gavin Newsom and other state leaders had just announced, which would explicitly enshrine abortion rights in the state Constitution through passage of a ballot measure now known as Proposition 1.
“I will be forming a California PAC for choice and providing initial support of $100,000 and pledging $1 million to ensure the amendment’s passage,” Caruso wrote in a statement, backing a measure that state lawmakers would later vote to place on the November ballot.
