Abortion By Medication on College Campuses
UPDATE: Bill has passed through the California Senate and is now in the Assembly Committee on Higher Education (6/14/18).
Senate Bill 320, introduced by Sen. Connie Leyva (D-Chino), would mandate California UC and CSU campus health centers to offer abortion pills (chemical abortion) which can terminate a pregnancy up to 10 weeks.
A chemical abortion is a first-trimester abortion performed in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. It is not performed surgically, but through medication a woman ingests in a clinical setting that induces a miscarriage after several days.
This legislation would mandate California universities provide chemical abortions to female students.
This is unconscionable for so many reasons:
1) The killing of an innocent child.
2) Trauma of giving birth to a dead baby up to 10 weeks old.
3) Trauma of forcefully inducing a miscarriage, expelling a fetus (in a dorm room) over the course of several days.
4) Emotional and psychological anguish that can last a life time.
Simply call your Senator and tell them that you oppose SB 320. It takes five minutes,
