San Francisco Expands Travel Ban to Pro-Life States
freebeacon ^ | OCTOBER 16, 2019 | Graham Piro

San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws.

The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country.

City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault on women and women's reproductive rights" and "an economic hit on women."

The city also took action in 2016 to ban business with states that had enacted anti-LGBT laws. The initial list of states covered by this ban included Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Tennessee before expanding to include South Dakota.

San Francisco has not been shy about restricting its relationships based on the political priorities of the board of supervisors. In September, the board passed a resolution condemning the National Rifle Association as a "domestic terrorist organization," claiming the group used its influence to "incite gun owners to acts of violence." Mayor London Breed sent a memo to city employees clarifying that the resolution was non-binding and did not prohibit city contractors from doing business with the organization.

San Francisco is also not the only city to take action against what it perceives as assaults on reproductive rights. Los Angeles County imposed a temporary travel ban to Alabama after the state passed one of the strongest pro-life reforms in the country. Colorado also banned state travel to Alabama after asking Planned Parenthood for input on the state's decision.

The pro-life states should retaliate.

After all, who wants to travel somewhere where you have to step over poop?

Can we also get a ban on Californians relocating to Red states?

So why would city employees travel to other states on the taxpayers dime?

And just how minuscule would be the financial impact on those States?

Libs are crazy.

I don't see why not. In the past, there might have been a Constitutional argument against it, but the Democrats let that horse out of the barn years ago.

Will state-funded travel be far behind?

Good to hear. Now those states won’t need to bother banning san franciscans from traveling to their states.

Pro Life states don’t want San Pelosi*tsco folks stepping onto their states and getting CA feces caked shoes on their streets.

So, the feeling is mutual.

Like a malignant tumor telling its cells not to spread to certain areas.

I think we could count on one hand how many decent and good people live in SF; the shitty by the bay.

We will not seek retribution upon San Francesco.

In a goodwill response, we will happily pay for and provide “One Way” tickets to all our homeless people and drug addicts.

Instead of a reciprocal boycott, the affected states should send convention business to SF, but everyone while there should join in the local fun and take a dump in the street. Thanks Marv.

I just put a no travel ban on myself, my family and some dear friends for ever wallowing through the Streets of San Francisco for protection of our health and welfare.

They are building their own wall around their state. It’ll save us the trouble.

We folks in Alabama request that you ban us, too. (Helps keep the vermin out)
