(Reuters) – California governor Gavin Newsom said on Monday that the state will propose an amendment to ‘enshrine the right to choose’ in the state’s constitution, after Politico reported a leaked draft suggesting that the U.S. Supreme Court is set to overturn abortion rights in the country.

“We can’t trust SCOTUS to protect the right to abortion, so we’ll do it ourselves,” Newsom said in a tweet.
