A California state senator is pushing a bill that would require public university health centers and community college campuses to provide non-surgical abortion services, the Sacramento Bee reported.

This bill comes as Republicans in Congress push to defund Planned Parenthood.

 

Senator Connie Leyva introduced Senate Bill 320 Friday. Student health centers that operate with state funding would be required to provide students with access to medication to abort a pregnancy.
