California Governor Gavin Newsom launched billboard campaigns in several red states.

The seven signs tout access to abortion in the Golden State.

In a tweet yesterday, Newsom wrote, “Just launched billboards in 7 of the most restrictive anti-abortion states that explain how women can access care–no matter where they live. To any woman seeking an abortion in these anti-freedom states: CA will defend your right to make decisions about your own health.”

The billboards are can be seen in Texas, Indiana, Mississippi, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota and Oklahoma.

The billboards also advertise the state’s new reproductive health website, which is available here.
