College Student Right to Access Act (SB 24)
At a time when abortion rights are under attack, California can and must be a leader on abortion access. Right now, most university health centers provide quality health care at low or no cost to students. But campus clinics in the state don’t provide abortion care, and many don’t have an abortion provider close by. For students, it can be hard to raise the money or find transportation to access this care.
That’s why we’re supporting the College Student Right to Access Act (SB 24), which will make sure California’s university students have access to the abortion pill. The abortion pill is safe, effective care that can – and should – be offered at every California university health center. You can learn more at http://justcarecalifornia.org/.
