(CBN News) Groups will gather in Sacramento, Calif. on Tuesday to protest legislative proposal, SB 24, mandating that state-funded colleges keep the abortion pill RU-486 available as a basic health service.
The legislation, SB 24, was introduced in December by state Sen. Connie Leyva. It would require student health centers on all University of California and California State University campuses to offer chemical abortions to students up to 10 weeks of pregnancy, beginning in January 2023.
The drug Mifepristone/RU-486, which ends the life of the unborn child, and Misoprostol, which causes severe cramping, contractions, and bleeding to expel the baby from the womb, are used together in chemical abortions.
Pro-life activists with Students for Life of America (SFLA) are meeting on August 13 to gather petitions against SB 24. The event includes a march and guest speakers condemning the bill.
SFLA Regional Coordinator Nick Reynosa said “California is the only state with a SB 24 type bill. If passed, it could lead up to 6,000 chemical abortions per year and with no guaranteed conscience protections.”
