The governor is about to sign a bill into law (SB 24) that calls for abortions to be available on College Campuses and Universities across California. This is a bill that was proposed earlier and was refused by former Governor Jerry Brown.
"The bill would require, on and after January 1, 2023, each student health care services clinic on a California State University or University of California campus to offer abortion by medication techniques, as specified. The bill would require the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls to administer the College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund, which the bill would establish. The bill would continuously appropriate the moneys in that fund to the commission for allocations to each public university student health care services clinic for specified activities in preparation for providing abortion by medication techniques, thereby making an appropriation. The bill would provide that its requirements would be implemented only if, and to the extent that, a total of at least $10,290,000 in private moneys is made available to the fund in a timely manner on or after January 1, 2020."
Student fees have already been raised in preparation for this service. Regardless if the 36,500 student that are attending the local American River Community College are aware they already are being made to pay for unborn babies to be murdered on their college campus. This fee if paid by all minimally raises $70,000 as presented in a single semester and $140,000/yr just for one of the four community college campus's in the Sacramento County. This does not include the increase in fees from the 36,000 students that attend CSUS.
Jerry Brown Vetos Bill: In the previous administration Jerry Brown who is by no means a conservative nor friend to the unborn veto'd this bill with the acknowledgement that they have already provided the ability to preform abortions on every campus, if someone wants one they only have to go 100ft.
Today the National Right to Life's Western Regional Director Brian Johnston and College Republican Masala Riley tried to deliver petitions to stop abortions on CA College Campuses and were refused to be heard.
"Last week 19,000 petitions from across the state were presented to the Governor urging him to veto SB 24. Today another 7,000 petitions were presented. The Governor has until October 13 to decide." -Brian Johnston (Western Regional Director for the National Right to Life)
