“Turning university healthcare centers into abortion vendors will result in students being sent to their dorms after ingesting dangerous, life-ending drugs, to face great personal risk and exposing the schools to huge costs and complications,”said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins. “The only ones who truly benefit are abortion vendors, who will make money with no risk and all reward.”
SACRAMENTO, CA and FREDERICKSBURG, VA (08-19-18) –Students for Life of America will be at the California State Capitol as SB 320 is expected to come up for debate moving closer to a vote before the state assembly. SFLA has hosted more than 50 events across the state, as well as testifying in opposition to the measure, meeting with legislators and school officials, talking with the media and gathering students together to work against the proposal to turn health centers on campuses into abortion vendors, despite the known risks of distributing the life-ending drugs. “Schools should be focused on educating the next generation, not ensuring that it’s easy to end the lives of future generations,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “This proposal creates great risk to women, who will be sent to their dorms to bleed and experience a horrific event, and will expose universities to great risk when tragic consequences occur.”
MEDIA ADVISORY:SFLA Pacific Southwest Regional Coordinator Christina Herrera and Anna Arend, Northern California Regional Coordinator, will be on site and available for comment. E-mail Kristi at [email protected] or Matt at [email protected] to arrange an interview. Kristan Hawkins is available for interview in Washington D.C.
“Through SB 320, abortion vendors like Planned Parenthood could make money with no risk and all reward, as they get a cut of taxpayer funds for consulting, while avoiding the risk if something goes wrong,” noted Hawkins. The FDA reports that such drug-induced abortions have lead to cases of extreme bleeding, infection and incomplete abortions requiring a surgery, and even to the deaths of women. The drugs are especially dangerous to women who are later in pregnancy or experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, both conditions which must be determined by an ultrasound (using equipment not usually found in a college health center.) And as the women would be sent to their dorms to experience extreme bleeding, the schools would be confronted with the issues of blood and tissue clean up on site as well as the potential need for blood transfusions if a life threatening situation arose.
