According to one pro-life activist, not all abortion-minded Massachusetts residents want to support what has become a radical agenda in the state.
Imitating California, the Massachusetts Legislature is considering House Bill 3841, a measure that would provide RU 486 free to women on state-supported college campuses.
C.J. Williams of Massachusetts Citizens for Life tells OneNewsNow this sends the message to young women that solving a dilemma is just pills away.
"It's going to harm the young women on our campuses by telling them this extremely damaging drug is the same as getting their tonsils removed," Williams contends, adding that a tonsillectomy is "something that actually is a health procedure, whereas abortions -- chemical and surgical -- are never health procedures."
More than 20 women have died after taking the drugs, and just under 3,000 have reported adverse side effects so severe that many were hospitalized.
Williams tells OneNewsNow the purpose of the bill is not to provide access as much as it is to promote abortion.
"Pushing abortion is radical even for traditionally pro-choice citizens," she submits. "I know many pro-choice Democrats who are dubious about how radical the abortion business has gotten in Massachusetts with wanting to push abortion, and they're really pushing access over safety."
As for the Massachusetts measure, the taxpayers would be the ones footing the cost, even if they oppose abortion.
