California Capitol Also thank you to everyone who called Senators in opposition to SB 320 and those who attended
Californians for Life Advocacy Day at the State Capitol last Wednesday!  You can watch the Senate Health Committee proceedings here- fast forward to the 55 minute mark to hear the SB 320 vote.

We have more Good News!  SB 320 is stalled in the Senate Education Committee and has so many problems, including serious concerns by the UC/CSU administrations that the author has dropped the community college component to the bill and it will likely take two years to address all the concerns in the bill.  However, with the 2/3rds super-majority of pro-abortion Democrats dominating our state legislature, we will need to keep a close watch on this bill so that they don't try to ram it through this session! 
SB 320  would have  REQUIRED all University of California, California State University, and community college campus health centers to distribute the Abortion Pill RU-486.   Stay tuned as we provide Action Alerts to OPPPOSE this egregious bill! The National Democratic Chairman insists Democrat candidates must be pro-abortion!
