California legislature passes bill requiring public colleges to offer abortion pills

Excerpt:

 

California’s public universities are now one step closer to providing medication abortion for students, as a bill requiring public universities to offer abortion pills passed the California legislature.

 

The bill, which must now be approved by Gov. Jerry Brown, would require student health centers at public universities to offer medication abortion as a “basic health service.” The measure would take effect in 2022 and be funded through a College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund made up of private, rather than state, funds.

 

California would be the first state to mandate providing medication abortions at public universities if the bill goes through.

 

“As the federal government continues to roll back critical health care protections and services for women, I am pleased that California is clearly moving in the opposite direction by strengthening access to safe and timely reproductive health care,” California State Senator Connie Leyva, who authored the legislation, said in a statement. “By providing medication abortion services on campus by trained health care providers, students will not be forced to delay medical care, travel long distances or even miss class or work responsibilities.”

 

Medication abortion, which is separate from Plan B or the “morning after pill,” consists of two pills taken within the first 10 weeks of pregnancy to induce a miscarriage. Politifact noted the medication typically costs around $600 on average, but might be offered to students at a reduced rate.

A study published by the University of California in December 2017 estimated between 322 and 519 medication abortions would take place on the state’s 34 public university campuses each month if the bill goes through. The measure would improve access to a service that students are already obtaining; the study estimated that students at University of California and California State University schools currently undergo 1,038 abortions each month.

Emphasis mine. I thought the numbers seem high but it tracks pretty closely with the failure rate of condoms, so ...

And yet, as a taxpayer, which is the lesser of the evils in this <censored>ing state?

California’s public universities are now one step closer to providing medication abortion for students, as a bill requiring public universities to offer abortion pills passed the California legislature.

I believe two things to be untrue:

 

FIRST, that this will (ultimately) ONLY affect "public" "universities". You can bet your bottom dollar this is only the Camel's nose. These perverts in California just won't be satisfied until every kindergartner in EVERY school has free access to condoms and birth control pills AND has been taught what they're for... preferably by Drag Queens and Transgenders.

 

SECOND, that this will ONLY come from private funding. However nice it sounds on paper, The People's Republic of California just doesn't believe in such things. Proof positive of this is that, if the state DID believe in private initiative AND there was enough private initiative to make it viable then they wouldn't need a law mandating it.
