student health center entranceEven though then-Governor Jerry Brown vetoed the legislation last year, abortion advocates in the California Legislature have reintroduced an abortion measure with hopes that Governor Gavin Newsom (D) will sign it into law.

The bill would require that all state colleges and universities provide free chemical abortions for all coeds beginning in January 2023. In a news release, Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel says even pro-life taxpayers will share the burden of paying for these abortions permitted within the first ten weeks of pregnancy.

"Unbelievably, this would allow a $200,000 grant for each of California's 33 public university student health centers," Staver adds.

He says those advocating for Senate Bill 24, sponsored by Democratic Senator Connie Leyva, are disingenuous regarding the uncertainties involved.

"These particular chemical abortions are not without complications and risks," he asserts. "There are women who will be hurt by these chemical abortions. Some of them will be permanently sterilized. Some of them could even bleed to death."

Staver says Gov. Brown vetoed the legislation not because he was opposed to abortion, but because he believed the bill was unnecessary. Recently-elected Gov. Newsom says he will sign it if it reaches his desk.
