California public universities to provide abortion pills under recent Senate proposal

A legislative proposal that passed through the state Senate Health Committee in April requires all public universities in California to provide abortion counseling and abortion by medication to students. If the bill passes, women attending public universities in California will be able to receive a two-pill dosage of mifepristone and misoprostol up to 10 weeks after the first day of their last menstrual cycle.
