California's Campus Abortion Mandate is Bad Model LegislationBy Patrina Mosley
The California bill SB 320 would have required the state's 34 public universities with on-campus student health centers to make abortion pills available on campus to more than 400,000 female students by January 1, 2022. SB 320 passed both chambers and was recently vetoed by the Governor. This is significant due to the fact that this bill would have become the first of its kind in the country and would have served as a model for other states to turn their student health centers into abortion clinics. Legislation like SB 320 shows a reckless disregard for the physical and psychological health of young women and presumes that education and motherhood are not compatible. No state should consider SB 320 for model legislation.
