REPORT: California Catholic leaders urge Newsom to veto bill on abortions at colleges
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Catholic leaders in California are asking Gov. Gavin Newsom to veto a bill that would require state universities to offer medication abortions.
“We urge him to veto this unprecedented and unnecessary legislation because it purposely narrows a young woman’s choices and puts the state’s prestigious academic institutions in a position of actually promoting, facilitating, and potentially funding only abortions,” Andrew Rivas said in a statement released Monday.
The article goes on to state the following:
Rivas, who is the executive director of the California Catholic Conference, the church’s public policy arm in the state, said the legislation should offer pro-life counseling to truly give a choice to female students.
The article states that the bill, overwhelmingly supported by California lawmakers, would “require all public universities in California to provide medication abortions through the first 10 weeks of pregnancy.”
