Legislation Providing Access to Deadly Chemical Abortion Pills Signed by New York Governor, SFLAction Opposes College Campuses as Grounds for Abortion Lobby

“The Pro-Life Generation is labeled by Governor Hochul as ‘anti-choice extremists’ for opposing the deadly distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills that subject women to injury, infertility, death, and abuse,” said Kristan Hawkins, SFLAction President. “If the Governor and female members of New York’s legislature truly cared about women’s health, and the status of our environment that is negatively impacted by Chemical Abortion Pills and chemically-tainted blood, tissue, and fetal remains being flushed into the water, they would not support the drugs getting into the hands of vulnerable young women studying at college.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (05-02-2023) – In response to the New York legislature sending Assembly Bill A1395-C, which would require some of the state’s largest universities to prescribe and dispense Chemical Abortion Pills for free, Students for Life Action (SFLAction) alerted its base of Gen Z and Millennial students to call the Governor’s office in opposition.

However, New York Governor Kathy Hochul was all too eager to sign the legislation ensuring the death of preborn children and likely endangerment of women. Because of the Govenor’s quick actions to sign the bill, the State University of New York (SUNY) and City University of New York (CUNY) will now become Chemical Abortion Pill dispensaries at taxpayer expense.

“Young women on college campuses, especially in states such as New York, shouldn’t have to fear about their future fertility, blood clots, and possibly hemorrhaging in dormitory bathrooms – all side effects of the deadly Chemical Abortion Pills Governor Hochul wants on campus,” added Hawkins.

The reckless actions in California where abortion-backed leaders pushed for college campuses to dispense Chemical Abortion Pills has made its way to the East Coast. SFLAction has stood up federal legislation combatting such efforts that replace dorm rooms for hospitals.

SFLAction’s Protecting Life on College Campus Act is a measure designed to prevent Corporate Abortion from misusing colleges and universities as a place to market and sell Chemical Abortion Pills. The bill would deny federal funds to schools that push Chemical Abortion drugs through a “student-based service site,” an idea supported by 9 in 10 Gen Z & Y surveyed in SFLA’s recent YouGov poll which found a consistent concern with the current, Biden Administration-approved no-test, online distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills.

The legislation today will not only lead to even more preborn babies killed in the Empire state but endanger women and put them at risk of serious complication without medical supervision. SFLAction will continue to educate students on the disastrous impact of these drugs through its initiative This Is Chemical Abortion.
