Voice for life 'very much' a minority in California

abortion activists protestingPro-life groups in California are preparing for their uphill battle against the latest effort to provide abortion on demand.

At issue is Senate Bill 320, which, according to Wynette Sills of Californians for Life, would treat pregnancy as a problem that can be easily remedied.

"That is intended through the Democratic Party to require, force, mandate each of our publicly-funded University of California and California State University's student health centers … to distribute the chemical abortion pill through the student health centers right on campus," Sills reports.

It would not cost the students a dime, so taxpayers would foot the bill for this trashing of the humanity of preborn children. With that in mind, Californians for Life plans to testify against the proposal before the Senate Education Health Committee Wednesday.

"The voice for life is in a very much minority, and so while we will reemphasize that fact -- that the chemical abortion pill ends a human life -- we will also talk about the horrific, traumatic impact that the chemical abortion experience has on women," the pro-lifer tells OneNewsNow.

Senator Connie Leyva (D-Chino), the bill's sponsor, argues that without passage of the measure, young students would have to go to off-campus clinics for a surgical or chemical abortion, and they might have to pay for it. So taxpayers, including those who are opposed to abortion, will have to come up with the tax dollars in an already financially strapped state.
