California state lawmakers pass bill requiring public universities to offer abortion pill on campus

SOURCE: (The Hill)

The California State Assembly voted overwhelmingly to pass legislation to require public universities in the state to offer medication abortion at on-campus student health centers. 

The body voted to pass Senate Bill 24 in a 55-19 voted on Friday, several months after the state Senate first voted to approve the measure in May. 

According to The New York Times, 34 college campuses in the state would be affected by the legislation, if passed, which seeks to require “each student health care services clinic on a California State University or University of California campus to offer abortion by medication techniques.”

“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 states. 

“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,” it continues.

The bill also stated that its requirements would be implemented “only if” a total of at least $10,290,000 in private money is made available to the fund “in a timely manner” by the start of Jan. 2020. According to the Times, organizers have said they already raised that amount.

Another bill that sought to require public universities in the California was reportedly rejected by then-Gov. Jerry Brown (D) in 2018. However, according to the Times, Newsom said then as the lieutenant governor that he would have approved the measure. 

Newsom’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill. 

The news comes shortly after a similar measure was introduced in Massachusetts earlier this year that also seeks to require public universities to provide medication abortion.

Tsarfati stated that "prayer was the most successful air defense system." I agree. We know that when God's people pray, and especially when they have been and still are interceding for Israel and the Jewish people, God hears their prayers.

In A World Encased In Violence, Prophecy Is The Stabiliser Of Our Faith

God did not provide His Word so that it would simply die in the hands of the spiritually dead. He expected, as evidenced by Habakkuk, that it be shared – particularly that which was warning people of the two paths available – righteousness or wickedness.
