California Students Come Out In Droves To Demand Free Abortion On Campus
A slew of California college kids gathered together Monday to demand the State Assembly accept and pass a bill that would mandate all public universities offer free abortions to any student in their health clinics.
The students hailed from 14 different universities including the University of California, Berkeley, the University of California, Los Angeles, California State University, Fresno, Humboldt State University and Mills College, according to The Daily Californian.
“The overwhelming majority of students we’ve talked to are in favor,” said Phoebe Abramowitz, the Just CARE organizer and co-director of Students United for Reproductive Justice (SURJ). “There’s really no other reason, besides stigma, that this should not be a standard.”
The rally comes after the California Senate approved Senate Bill 320 on Jan. 29 requiring the state’s public universities and colleges to offer abortion drugs at their health centers. Sponsored by Democratic Sen. Connie Leyva, the bill requires the state’s community colleges and public universities to provide women with abortion pills for up to 10 weeks of pregnancy so they don’t have to travel to get the pills.
