We need EVERYONE to call Senator Levya's office today 916-651-4020 to express your outrage against her bill SB 320.  

Call Senator Leyva at her Capitol Office at 916-651-4020  and tell her how strongly you OPPOSE her new bill SB 320, which requires abortion pills be distributed in our student health centers, essentially turning our campus health centers into an abortion business.  These pills will hurt our daughters and end the lives of our grandchildren by forcefully inducing a miscarriage up to 10 weeks of pregnancy, with hemorrhaging and delivery of the baby into the dorm room toilet.   Read former Planned Parenthood Clinic Manager Abby Johnson's personal story of taking the Abortion Pill- does Senator Leyva want that happening to her daughter?  Your daughter?  If you live in her Senate District of Chino, San Bernardino, Ontario, Pomona, please call and visit her local District offices in Chino and San Bernardino.

"Support for abortion or doctor-assisted suicide is not in accord with the teachings of the Church. These represent the direct taking of human life, and are always wrong."
