Students Fight to Get Abortion Services on CampusesMarch 8, 2018 |
by Rowan Walrath
A bill that would require public university clinics to provide medication-based abortions is halfway to becoming law in California.
SB 320, a first-of-its-kind bill inspired by a resolution from students at the University of California-Berkeley, applies to all UC and California State University campuses, with an option for community colleges and private universities to take part. The state Senate passed the bill January 29 on a vote of 25 to 13. Now SB 320 resides with the state Assembly, which is expected to vote on it this spring.
