California is looking at requiring state colleges to carry abortion pills in their health services:
California legislators are set to plunge into an election-year debate over abortion access, taking up a bill that would make the state the first in the nation to mandate public universities offer medication abortion as part of basic student health services.
The measure, which passed the state Senate in January, would expand abortion rights at a time when some other states are enacting new restrictions on the procedure. The bill on Wednesday came before a key Assembly committee, which decided to determine by the end of next week whether it will move to the floor. The Assembly would have to clear the measure by Aug. 31 for it to reach Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk.
It’s good policy, it’s better and safer than pregnancy, and a lot less expensive.
As to the politics, f%$#ing with the anti-abortion Talibaptists is a good thing too.
