Ca Senate Committee Approves Bill to Provide Abortifacient Drugs on All Public Colleges and Universities

Ca Senate Committee Approves Bill to Provide Abortifacient Drugs on All Public Colleges and Universities

By Dave Andrusko

RU-486 pill

SB 24, a bill that would force student health centers at all University of California and California State University campuses to offer abortifacient drugs beginning in January 1, 2023 passed the Senate Health Committee Wednesday on a vote of 7-3.

According to Jenni Fink, “There are 10 campuses within the University of California system and an additional 23 comprise the California State University system.”

Introduced last December by pro-abortion state Senator Connie Leyva, Senate Bill 24 is her latest attempt to ensure that so-called medication abortions are available through the first ten weeks of pregnancy.

“SB 24 is an important step toward ensuring the right to abortion is available to all Californians and that our college students don’t face unnecessary barriers,” Sen. Leyva said in a statement that appeared on her website

Her previous bill (SB 320) was vetoed by pro-abortion former Governor Jerry Brown in late 2018. His reasons had nothing to do with the ethics of abortion but rather that there was no need.

“According to a study sponsored by supporters of this legislation, the average distance to abortion providers in campus communities varies from five to seven miles, not an unreasonable distance,” Brown wrote in the veto letter. “Because the services required by this bill are widely available off-campus, this bill is not necessary.”

Brown’s successor, Gavin Newsom, has previously said he would sign such a bill.

Funding, particularly start-up costs, was always an issue but proponents have worked around it.

“The College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund would provide $200,000 grants to each public university student health center, as established in the bill,” Fink wrote. “The grant’s intention is to cover the costs of medication abortion readiness and permits for several expenses, including the purchase of equipment, facility and security upgrades and training staff members.”

Opponents have seen the proposal in a far different light. Their instinct is not to take the child’s life but to help the mother navigate an unplanned pregnancy at the same time she is attending school. According to the Daily Titan, the student newspaper at California State University, Fullerton, Cameron Brewer, who was then the new president of Students for Life,

opposes the bill. Brewer said that any campus health resources should be used to help women who are pregnant, need help with child care and give information about adoption.

“It’s (the pill) more traumatic for women. It’s way easier to access without thinking about it, and the side effects can be more severe. There should be more instruction on the adoption process,” said Brewer.

Naturally, in all the promotion for chemical abortifacients at student health centers not a syllable about the thousands of complications and even deaths.

The latest FDA latest update tells us that as of December 31, 2017, the deaths of at least 22 women have been associated with the use of the two-drug abortion technique.

Student health centers at public universities in California “do not offer abortions of any kind, instead referring women to off-campus clinics,” according to Melody Gutierrez of the San Francisco Chronicle.

SB24’S REAL PURPOSE

Camille Giglio

4/16/2019. Walnut Creek. Ca. Do you know anyone who still believes that Planned Parenthood and friends care one little bit about women with unplanned Pregnancies or violent sexual mates or sexual inequality? You can quickly dispatch those beliefs by telling these people about Senator Connie Leyva’s California bill, SB24  Student Health Centers; Medication Abortion.

AB 24 which passed its first hearing on April 4  in the Senate Health Committee, would, among other things, provide $200,000.00 per school to prepare exam room space in their school clinics and employ nurse practitioners whose sole duty would be to dispense RU486 to female students.

It would also create a new advisory board staffed by the members of the California Status of Women…and girls… Commission to manage the Fund of both private and public dollar donations and grants solely for this.

SB 24 is not about health care or education or equal justice for women. It’s about getting inside education department and setting up abortion as something no different than dispensing an aspirin. It’s a profitable business. What business doesn’t want to expand?

California’s quiet reproductive rights revolution, published in 2014 by MSNBC’s Equality and Health segment of its on-line news feed carries a 2014,old but still worthwhile report.

The 2014 goal of a group called ACCESS, was full of expanding access to abortion. It has been their battle cry since Roe v Wade and is still ongoing. In their minds there are never enough young women having abortions or enough nurses and doctors trained to provide this service according to their mission and goal. Does any business set a limit on who can buy their product? Bills hoping to further market abortions pops up consistently in legislation often without success. This year is different.  The Democrats, esp., pro abort Dems control the votes.

Today’s  legislative term, 2019, is carrying yet another such bill, SB24, Student Health Centers: Abortion by Medication, by Sen. Connie Leyva. She is the current PP abortion enabler in the legislature who is proposing yet another method to open up more avenues to access to abortion.

SB 24 was heard on April 4 in the Senate  Health Committee and recorded for public listening. You can watch the hearing by going to our blogsite for California Right to Life.

AB 24 includesrequiring California universities and colleges (roughly about 35 campuses) to accept  $200,000.00 each to set up facilities within the student health centers for nurse practitioners to dispense RU486, the notorious morning-after pill.  The bill invites private donations but it is obvious who or what source would eventually be providing the funding.

Sen. Shannon Grove, one of the two Republican members of this committee, Sen. Stone being the other one asked some specific questions on the credentials of those who would be dispensing the pills and on procedures that would be followed should a student experience health or emotional problems surrounding the potential expelling of a dead baby at inconvenient times and places.  None of these questions were answered because they have no answer no plan.

Sen. Holly Mitchell brushed away those concerns by saying that those were discussions more appropriate for other committees such as finance.  She wished to discuss policy issues.

As she talked it became clear that the policy she wished to discuss was one of equal justice or making medication abortion, of any type and for all, available on  every university and college campuses as well as private colleges as a future goal.

Interestingly she never said the stronger more binding words “must be” introduced on campuses. She said, instead “ought to be.”  This casual phrase indicates no forceful need, just a whim. It is a further indication that she and her abortion cohorts in the legislature care little to nothing for the health and emotional safety of our students.  They care only about their exalted philosophy which goes something like; since abortion is legal and physical or mental harm is very minimal – according to their figures – then why isn’t medication abortion one of the offerings?

It doesn’t matter how much it costs, how much it harms the woman’s reproductive system or their emotional stability. It doesn’t matter that it isn’t cost effective or efficient.  It is a type of abortion procedure and we, the pro abort women and men of this august legislative body now have the control of the legislature and the minds of the legislators to be able to do anything we want.

They are approaching it like the business that it really is, not a service or a compassionate choice. That’s all advertising! They particularly cited figures that said that the procedure most often used to obtain an abortion was a suction machine anyway. What she didn’t say was that a suction abortion following a medication abortion is often required because of uterine infection from incomplete abortion by medication.

The bill will next be heard in the Senate Education Committee on April 24. Note the relevance of the date – 24 as in SB 24.  Also the name RU486 is a reference to the date this pill was put on market, April 1986.

WHERE DO YOU CALL:

Senate Education Committee, 916-651-4105. Leyva herself is Chairman. Please encourage everyone you know to call and call your own state senator who will vote on SB24 when it comes to the Senate floor.

TO: Honorable Richard Pan, Chairman

FROM: Liz Froelich, Legislative Analyst
DATE: March 27, 2019
RE: (SB 24 Leyva) Public Health: University Health Centers: Abortion
POSITION: OPPOSE

CRLC must adamantly oppose the inclusion of medication abortions or any form of abortion procedures at publicly funded California institutions of higher education.

SB24 is a rerun of SB320 from the previous legislature.  It was rightly vetoed by then Governor Jerry Brown as not necessary.  He stated that accessibility and availability were NOT problems for college students.

SB 24 reiterates the myth that a medication abortion is a safe medical procedure while claiming that it is an accepted health care component for reproductive health.

CRLC vigorously objects to these assertions.  Abortion is not health care for either the pregnant woman or the preborn girl or boy. 

For the continued good health of women students in California we demand a NO vote.

STOP AB 624-FREE TAXPAYER ADVERTISING FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND OTHERS

STOP AB 624-FREE TAXPAYER ADVERTISING
FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND OTHERS

April 10, 2019. Walnut Creek. This term’s stable of bills on healthcare and education are now quickly moving through the legislature with little to no opposition from the church, the Republican office holders or the state.

Bills dealing with the social, emotional, academic, mental health and workforce training of students has flooded the health and education agendas of the state. The goal is the re-ordering of the idea of family. Our future as citizens of California may become  more of a mandate for being primarily non-voluntary partners of the state rather than parents and primary educators of the children they bore.

AB 624, ID cards and Student Health Resources. This bill will place hotline phone numbers on the backs of student ID cards paid for with taxpayer education dollars.

The bill Passed the Assembly Education Committee on Party line vote and now moves to the Assembly Higher Education Committee. Hearing date in late April. There are 3 Republicans and 9 Democrats on this committee, Asm Gabriel himself being one of them.

PLEASE BEGIN  CALLING TODAY - THIS HIGHER ED COMMITTEE AND EXPRESSING YOUR OPPOSITION TO PASSAGE OF THIS BILL. Phone: 916-319 3960.

All you need to do is state your position on AB 624 and the area in which you live. Pass on this information to others, including your Bishop or church leaders. Ask them to speak to the parishioners urging them to step up to protect their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual health by defeating this bill. They don’t record names, just the numbers who call.

Make no mistake, today’s legislators, including some Republicans, believe that parents are accountable to the state for the end result of raising children.

Today, Governor Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Seibel Newsom, is leading a demonstration around the Capitol in support of AB624 by Assembly member Jesse Gabriel (D-San Fernando) entitled Pupil and Student Health: Identification Cards (D-San Fernando).

Planned Parenthood gave Gabriel $4,400.00 for his 2018 election Campaign. This is chump change, but he, in return, is attempting to give all of California’s children to Planned Parenthood to show his appreciation by using student ID cards are free advertising for all the groups who support him and work with Planned Parenthood.

Following the media and Planned Parenthood driven hysteria regarding the state of children’s mental and physical health, the Democrats are calling for placing hotline phone numbers on the back of student ID cards for mental health counseling groups, domestic violence groups, sexual assault groups, etcThey apparently believe that this will fulfill the mandate in socialized medicine for “healthcare-for-all.”

This will include Charter Schools, private schools and beginning with 7th grade level students by June 2020.  This is free, to them, advertising paid for with education dollars derived from taxpayers.

This is a misuse of our children, a misuse of taxpayer funds, misuse of educational opportunities for students, and a dangerous re-formation of beliefs and values being modeled for our children.

It’s a deliberate move to drive a wedge between children and parents, turning the children to the state for guidance and support while the parents pay for all of this in the misguided belief that our children are getting an academic education.

Only three pro life organizations are opposing this: The California Catholic Conference, Faith and Public Policy and our organization.  This is a Planned Parenthood bill. Googling Assembly member Jesse Gabriel’s name and that of Planned Parenthood brings up glowing press releases by PP for the great work of Asm Gabriel. He was elected to the Assembly late last year. He received glowing endorsements and generous donations for his Campaign from statewide well-known very progressive elected officials as well as by members of Planned Parenthood’s PPAC – it’s political support arm.

This legislative term, more than the usual number of bills are being put together in packages due to overlapping similarities.  For instance: To be heard in the Assembly Health Committee:

AB258 Pupil Health: School-Based Pupil Support Services Act.

States the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would increase in-school support services to pupils in order to break down barriers to academic success. Enacts the school-Based Pupil Support Services Program Act, under which grants and matching funds are awarded by the State Department of Education to local educational agencies.

One of the supporters is the California School Nurses Organization – CSNO. This is an affiliate of the national school Nurses Org. which has a public policy statement supporting birth control for students.

This sounds like it might be good, but really, it is a tool for merging the departments of health and education. Education is now health care and health care is now part and parcel of education delivered through the easiest access, the school house.

Please add this phone number – Assembly Health Committee -  to your list to call and OPPOSE.  Phone: 916-319-2097. Chad Mayes, Republican from San Bernardino area, is the V. Chairman of this committee. He needs a reminder that he is a Republican not a duplicate of the Democrats.

His phone number is 916-319-2142

TOMORROW, FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 8:30 Mass at Queen of All Saints Church, Concord, followed by a Rosary Procession to Planned Parenthood five county headquarters one block away. Try to come.

Queen of All Saints church, 2390 Grant St. Planned Parenthood, corner of Grant and Pacheco Sts. Free Public Parking garage on Salvio at Grant.

Note:  We were called by an Aide in Asm Gabriel’s office, Abram Diaz,  attempting to urge us to remove our  opposition to Gabriel’s two other school mental health services bill – ab166 MediCal Violence Preventive Services, Also in the Assembly Health Committee ;hearing date 4/23:  and AB 666 Pupil Mental Health: Model Referral Protocols Awaiting hearing in Assembly Appropriations Committee.

CALIFORNIA WANTS TO TURN COLLEGE HEALTH CLINICS INTO ABORTION CENTERS - SB24

CALIFORNIA WANTS TO TURN COLLEGE HEALTH CLINICS
INTO ABORTION CENTERS – SB24.

Camille Giglio.

4/13/19. Walnut Creek, Ca. Senator Connie Leyva, (D-San Bernardino) grateful recipient of $15,700.00 in campaign donations from Planned Parenthood for her recent re-election, wishes to repay this generosity by turning California college campuses and clinics into branch offices of Planned Parenthood.

Senate bill 24, is titled Student Health Centers: Abortion by Medication.

The bill Requires each student health care service clinic on a California State University or University of California campus to offer abortion by medication,i.e. RU486 formerly called the “morning after pill.Further the bill requires the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls to administer the College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund. Also created by this bill.

The bill will be heard on April 24, 2019, in the:

Senate Education Committee – 916-651-4105
The bill has already passed the Senate Health Committee chaired by Richard “vaccinate-them-all” Pan.

Ms Leyva is chairman of that committee of 7 people; 5 Dems and 2 Reps. outside the womb.

The fact that Ms Leyva has chosen the Status on Women and girls committee to manage and oversee a fund design specifically to pay for the abortions and deceptively give money to her true interest, the S.O.W. committee  It’s all about doing special favors for the groups that support her, it is not about the female students whose lives will be placed in peril by abortions that will occur in the dorm, on a date, in the car, in the all-persons bathrooms. Etc.


The state legislature has initiated a new means of contact between citizens and the legislators. It’s called a Legislative Portal and is a  requirement that anyone wishing to write to a legislator or committee must do so in a specific manner referred to as a portal.

Here is the route to completing the registration:  https://calegislation.lc.ca.gov. Once the letter or communication is sent it automatically goes to every member of the particular committee in which the bill is located at that time as well as remains in the committee. If there are no amendments to the bill the letter follow the bill to the next committee. THESE LETTERS MUST BE SUBMITTED 8 DAYS BEFORE THE HEARING DATE OF A BILL.

You may notice if you visit your state Assembly or Senate Representative’s online website you will see something similar. The main drawback here with this method – sending directly to the legislator- is that if one is not a resident of that legislator’s district the communication is rejected.

Two years ago three Counties were assigned the job of piloting this program. Beginning in January it was activated for all counties.  Hundreds of organizations, groups. etc, have signed up but this was unknown to pro life groups until the last month or so.

Become an advocates not the same as a lobbyist or an official employee of an organization. One can still call in to a legislator or a committee to register a position, but name and group will not be recorded, only the number of callers will be shown. Also some committees are requiring a handwritten signature on all letters. They claim that all this makes contact easier and is more quickly disseminated to committee members (all of whom now have iPads) saves money and time for the employees and is more efficient for the letter writer. It’s still dependent upon the legislator actually reading anything.


Here are some other bills which we are following:

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
