California Bill Demands Campuses Offer Abortion PillsJuly 5, 2018 |
by Reagan McCarthy
The California state legislature is pushing a bill through the assembly that would mandate college campuses to distribute abortions in the form of a pill. Senate Bill 320 passed the state senate in January, and was propelled through the Assembly’s Committee on Higher Education on Wednesday by a vote of 8-3.
Senate Bill 320 would force public universities and community colleges, funded by the state, to provide abortion drugs for students. Such drugs are to be taken for up to ten weeks into a pregnancy. The bill would also mandate that the colleges – funded by taxpayers – subsidize the cost of the abortions when student health insurance plans are used.
