"These guys are not only restricting the rights, the self-determination of a young woman to have a child, but they are also determining her destiny as far as her future in life is concerned by saying that they can't even travel (to get an abortion )," Newsom said on

Meet the Press.

The Democracy Campaign plans to advertise in Tennessee for two bills active in the state legislature, one in the House and one in the Senate, that would criminalize "abortion trafficking" or helping minors obtain abortion. procedure without parental consent.

The bills propose that any violation of the laws, which would criminalize "recruiting, harboring or transporting a pregnant minor in the state, for the purpose of concealing an abortion from the parents of said minor" would be a class C felony, which would be punishable by a minimum of six years in prison.

"These travel restrictions [are] modeled after a version that passed in Idaho and is now being proposed in Tennessee, Oklahoma and Mississippi," according to Newsom.
