California SB 320 to require state colleges & universities provide free abortion to students

The California state legislature is so hell-bent on killing unborn babies that it’s introduced a bill, SB 320, that will require state universities and colleges to provide free abortion to students.

SB 320 has a long Orwellian name that is not about “health”, but instead is all about death — “Public university student health centers: medication abortion readiness: abortion by medication techniques: College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund”.

Calling the killing of the unborn “abortion care” and “a constitutional right and an integral part of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care,” SB 320 bemoans the fact that although currently all California public university campuses have on-campus student health centers, “none of these health centers currently provide abortion by medication techniques.” Since abortion by medication techniques “is extremely safe, highly effective, and cost effective,” the bill opines that abortion by medication techniques “is an essential part of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care, and should be accessible at on-campus student health centers . . . as a basic health service.”

SB 320, therefore, requires that, beginning on January 1, 2022, the on-campus student health centers of the colleges and universities in the University of California and California State University systems “offer abortion by medication techniques” free for the students.

The abortions will be financed by the College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund and administered by the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls.

The moneys for the Fund will come from both government (taxes) and private sources. SB 320 says moneys for the Fund will have to be “continuously” appropriated, i.e., from taxation, with the provision that SB 320 “would be implemented only if, and to the extent that, a total of at least $9.6 million in private moneys are made available to the fund in a timely manner on or after January 1, 2019.”

SB 320 was introduced by State Senator Connie Leyva, Democrat, and co-authored by Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo, Democrat. Leyva’s previous occupation was “labor organizer”; Carrillo’s, who was born in El Salvadore, was “labor activist”.

As of August 30, 2018, the bill has been amended and approved by the relevant committees of the Senate and the Assembly. It has been “ordered to engrossing and enrolling” — which means that a final version of the bill is to be proofread and printed. The next step is for the bill to be voted on by the full Senate and Assembly.

UPDATE (Oct. 1, 2018)

Governor Jerry Brown vetoed the bill yesterday (Sept. 30) “because the services required by this bill are widely available off-campus, this bill is not necessary.” (LifeNews.com)

God said in Deuteronomy, CHOOSE LIFE! There has to be a horrible place for these people who want so many innocents to die.

Students with such concern with abortion ‘availability’ should be pursuing a different career path. One that does not require an education above that which they can get on most any city street corner.

Great. Free school = free “birth control”, paid for by the public and made “legal” by the state and local government, despite being an act of murder. Wonder how many women will now go to college just to get abortions? Want to see the true face of the lunatics on the progressive, feminazi left? tune in to CSpan this week (right now) to watch the audience members, in concerted effort, erupt every few minutes in a contemptible riot against allowing the proceedings. They must truly HATE this country, God, and life. It’s bad enough that the Democrat members of the… Read more »

So again, “The State” becomes the arbiter of morals? Why is it illegal to murder adults but OK to murder infants? We all know the answer. They don’t value human life and they don’t want us to either.

Amidst all the screeching and garment rending over Trump isn’t it interesting to see that the leftist agenda has actually accelerated? They keep pointing at Trump and screaming “fascist” while they advance their sickening agenda at a pace not possible under Obongo.

This is one reason why I’m so cynical. I know that these guys don’t work for us. They have to be physically stopped or they continue to move their plan.

So who gets stuck with the bill for all the murders?

The parents writing the checks.

Apparently religious beliefs have no validity any longer? I don’t want to fund or support something like this in any way. Why would government pay for abortions?
