Newsom trips on his own rake in saying Republicans believe ‘the rapists have more rights’ than victims

Radically far-left California Gov. Gavin Newsom has elicited mega backlash for accusing Republicans of caring more about rapists than their victims.

He made the despicable remarks during a discussion on CNN this Friday with Jake Tapper about the right-leaning Alabama Supreme Court’s decision to label frozen embryos as “children.”

As a result of the decision, Alabama clinics that offer in vitro fertilization (IVF) have paused their services because this procedure often involves the usage of unused embryos.

Listen to the CNN discussion below:

“Multiple clinics in the state are now pausing their IVF treatments as a result [of Alabama Supreme Court’s decision]. You called the decision ‘sickening.’ What are Democrats going to do about it, if anything?” Tapper asked Newsom during Friday’s discussion.

“Well, we’re going to continue to be on the offense,” Newsom replied. “We’re backed up by the American people. We’re backed up post-Dobbs. You just see the Republican Party’s on the defense on this issue for good reason because the American people have had it. This extremism manifested the ultimate extremism on the issue that impacts one out of every six people that in their lifetime have fertility issues. This is profound.

“And you talk about freedom. Spare me the Republican Party in this freedom gospel. What about family freedom? What about the right of people that want to start a family? And think about this, Jake. You know, this everybody knows this. You saw the stats: 65,000 births due to rapes since Dobbs in 14 states. Apparently, what the Republican Party is saying is, the rapists have more rights to bring those babies to birth than families that are trying desperately to have the privilege you and I have had as fathers and parents,” he added.

“It is a disgrace, and it’s a political problem for them, but it’s a moral issue. And I found what happened in Alabama disgusting. And, by the way, you have an AG in Alabama that also is out there promoting a travel ban that wants to criminalize travel for anyone that seeks an abortion out of state. That’s how extreme the state of the Republican Party is,” he continued.

There’s just one problem, according to critics: He has no room to talk. He is, after all, the same governor who four years ago signed a bill that protects child rapists.

“SB 145 would allow a sex offender who lures a minor with the intent to commit a felony (i.e. a sex act) the ability to escape registering as a sex offender as long as the offender is within 10 years of age of the minor,” the California Globe reported in 2020.

He’s also the same governor who in 2020 signed a bill allowing so-called “transgender women” to be incarcerated with actual women. Since the law’s signing, multiple female inmates have been attacked and even raped by the “transgender women.”

“Krystal Gonzalez, one of four female inmates suing to overturn the law, testified that she received no recourse after one of the ‘transgender’ prisoners [at her person] sexually assaulted her,” the Washington Free Beacon reported last year.

“When she reported the abuse, guards would not even acknowledge that a man had committed the act, referring to him instead as a ‘transgender woman with a penis,'” according to the Beacon.

“This worsens my distress because I do not believe they can really evaluate my grievance if they are pretending that women can have penises,” Gonzalez reportedly said. “This man violated me, and when the prison tries to tell me it was a woman, I feel violated again.”

Other inmates, meanwhile, testified that the state-government-funded prison guards always seemed to side with the “transgender women.”

“That was the experience of Sagal Sadiq … who witnessed a 6’3″ male transfer regularly leering at a female prisoner in the bathroom. Sadiq reported the offense to the guards, but they did nothing,” the Beacon notes.

“When the leering inmate confronted Sadiq about the complaint, the guards responded by frisking Sadiq, the prisoner who was being spied on, and a third inmate who intervened on the victim’s behalf. All three were then locked up in isolation,” according to the Beacon.

A governor whose state treats women so poorly has no room to talk about Republicans, especially considering how many Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, oppose the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling:
