California Legislature Approves Abortion on Campus Bill

The Senate Health Committee of the California state legislature has approved a bill that requires health clinics on college campuses to provide “medication abortion services.”

“Medication abortion” is fanciful name for an abortion pill.

The “College Student Right to Access Act,” or S.B. 24, would amend California’s public health code to require medical clinics located at public universities to “offer abortion by medication techniques” beginning in 2023. The law would go into effect if $10.2 million in private funds is “raised for the costs of equipment and training in clinics,” according to The Washington Times.

Interestingly, former Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed similar legislation in October 2018, as he said, “because the services required by this bill are widely available off-campus.” This time, however, the bill will likely be signed in by Governor Gavin Newsome (nephew of Nancy Pelosi, and likely Democrat presidential hopeful in 2024).

Democratic state Senator Connie Leyva introduced the legislation, and was the chief sponsor on the similar bill Brown vetoed. Leyva notably received $15,700 from Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California during the 2018 election cycle, according to VoteSmart.org.  Planned Parenthood has voiced support for the legislation (of course), according to justCARE.

“Women do not lose the constitutional right to end a pregnancy simply because they are a college student,” Leyva said in January 2018, adding that collegiate women should not have to bear the cost of abortions or travel long distances for the procedure.

Wow.  A constitutional right to kill babies?

These people are sickeningly evil.

Follow the money: by they way, while Leyva received the majority of her 2018 fundraising through public and trade unions, she received nearly $18,000 from a health care union and about $8,000 from Blue Cross Blue Shield of California.

Sounds like Pro-Abortion/Healthcare Industry collusion to me.
