California Bill Would Require State Colleges to Provide Abortion Pills

Gov. Gavin Newsom
A bill requiring University of California and California State University campuses to provide abortion pills to students is awaiting the signature of Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has already expressed his approval. A similar bill was vetoed by the previous governor Jerry Brown because he believed there were enough abortion facilities in the state that there wasn't an issue with students' access to abortion.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, had this to say:
"California legislators are recklessly experimenting with students’ lives and health by advancing a plan to force school health centers to become abortion vendors, pushing chemical abortion pills to force an intentional miscarriage. These Toilet Bowl Abortions would create havoc on campuses, as girls are sent to their dorm bathrooms to bleed and pass an aborted infant in a toilet, without medical supervision or assistance. Why would California schools want to expose their students and their universities to that kind of deadly risk?"
The governor has until October 13 to decide if he wants to sign this version of the bill. Click here for more.
