Leftist legislators in blue states are pushing for laws that would allow public universities to perform chemical abortions.
A new law went into effect in California on January 1. It requires public university systems to provide abortion services to students. Similar laws were also passed in Massachusetts and New York.
In 2019, a law was passed in California requiring the state's public university systems to provide abortion services at their health centers.
According to Mary Rose Short, the director of California Right to Life, the law requiring universities to provide abortion services is nothing more than a “lethal virtue-signaling exercise” by politicians in California.
In April 2022, the University of California Santa Barbara was able to provide its students with 50 prescriptions for abortion pills.
OBGYN and UC Santa Barbara Health Center staff member, Kellie DeLozier, said that providing the services was a way to show students that it's normal.
According to nurse practitioner Angie Magana, the clinic's staff members did not hesitate to prescribe the pills after participating in a workshop.
The clinic's staff members explained that the procedure was only part of the facility's services. They also told the students that they could leave their personal beliefs at home.
The clinic's staff members also explained that providing the pills was only part of their services. They noted that most students were okay with it.
According to Stancavage, the organization Students for Life of American would like to educate students about the importance of learning about the abortion pill. He praised Congressman Chip Roy of Texas for introducing a bill that would prevent universities from funding abortions.
He also noted that the organization was closely monitoring the situation in California due to the dangerous effects of chemical abortion. According to Stancavage, this type of procedure can lead to various health issues, including infertility and death.
