'Crazy' abortion industry would love SB-24 to become law

student health center entranceCalifornia lawmakers could vote this month to provide free chemical abortifacients on college campuses – and pro-life residents of the state are being urged to do everything they can to ensure it doesn't get passed.

Senate Bill 24 passed the California legislature once before. Ironically, it was vetoed by a Democratic governor.

"Former Governor Jerry Brown, who is strongly pro-abortion, vetoed it because, he said, 'There are enough abortion facilities within five to seven miles of every California university, this is unnecessary,'" explains Carol Tobias of National Right to Life. "But now that they have a new governor, the legislature is going to do it again – and I have no doubt it will pass and the new [Democratic] governor, Gavin Newsom, will sign it."

OneNewsNow asked Tobias why it would become law this time around.

"The entire mentality is that 'Abortion must be easily accessible and a college student shouldn't even have to worry about driving or getting five miles to an abortion facility' [and] 'We want to make sure it's available when and where she is,'" answers Tobias. "It's almost like the abortion industry has just become crazy."

The NRLC president explains there are currently no limits to abortion in California.

"[In that state] you can have an abortion for any time throughout pregnancy – no limits whatsoever, no informed consent requirements. So the woman does not have to be given any information about possible complications or alternatives that are available to the procedure," she continues.

"I encourage every [voter in California] who has any concerns about abortion, about killing unborn children, about making the dangerous pill available to college students without giving them any information about complications – they need to contact their senators and tell them to kill this bill. It needs to be stopped."
