Bill History:

SB 320 passed passed the State Senate on August 30 (only Democrats voted for it) after passing the State Assembly on August 29 (50 Democrats plus 2 "Republicans," Catharine Baker and Brian Maienschein, voted yes). See all the votes.

Democrat state legislators in California wanted to FORCE CSU and UC colleges to give teen girls abortion drugs.

On January 29, 2018, Democrats in the State Senate first powered through SB 320, an atrocious bill to provide college girls, as young as 18 or 19, dangerous abortion drugs that cause bleeding similar to a miscarriage.
 
Why Were Democrat Politicians Pushing This?
 
They wanted to kill the baby quicker. They also didn't want any female college student to do something as "terrible" as giving birth to a child. After all, she would have "no future," they falsely think.
 
This is the unloving, inhuman lunacy of the Democrat politicians behind this bad bill. Stop and realize that pushing dangerous abortion pills upon female college students means several health risks, including severe uterine bleeding, infections, blood clots, and worse.
 
Add to this CSU's practical concerns that its 23 campuses are just not set up to handle this tricky abortion-pill procedure and they don't want the increased liability for girls' injuries.

See how UC and CSU are concerned about SB 320:

Claire Doan, a UC spokeswoman, said that even with the funds pledged by private donors, the bill “does not provide adequate funding to support UC’s student health centers for medication abortion services on site,” and that there would be “a significant, ongoing impact on the UC budget, including student fees.” Security at student health centers would be among the expenses, she said.

CSU officials said it would be too expensive to provide the necessary medical equipment, train staff and care for students, including providing them with 24-hour phone support in the event of a medical emergency.

“As CSU doctors do not do inpatient care or have hospital admission privileges, campuses would need to establish agreements with local hospitals to accept students who experience complications from the medication,” said Mike Uhlenkamp, a CSU spokesman. “Each campus would also need to incur expenditures for additional safety improvements and liability insurance.”

 
"I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan;
and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion."
