California's Democratic governor Gavin Newsom has signed a new bill into law that will require all public colleges and universities in the state to provide "free" abortions drugs and health care to students.

The new law, SB 24, requires all colleges in the UC and CSU systems to provide "free" [taxpayer funded] abortion medications to students who choose such treatment.

Gov. Newsom signed the bill — the College Student Right to Access Act — into law on Friday.

Under the new law, student health centers within the UC and CSU school systems will be legally required to provide medical abortions and primary health care to all students by January 2023

In a press statement, the governor's office said, "Building on the state's historic $100 million investment in reproductive health in the 2019-20 state budget, Governor Gavin Newsom today signed into law legislation expanding access to critical reproductive health care services."

"As other states and the federal government go backward, restricting reproductive freedom, in California we are moving forward, expanding access and reaffirming a woman's right [to] choose."

"We're removing barriers to reproductive health — increasing access on college campuses and using technology to modernize how patients interact with providers," the release continued.

SB 24 passed the California Legislature in September, according to The Blaze.

"Unnecessary"

Former California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) vetoed the bill in 2018, insisting that such a bill was unnecessary.

In 2018, Brown said, "Access to reproductive health services, including abortion, is a long-protected right in California.

"According to a study sponsored by supporters of this legislation, the average distance to abortion providers in campus communities varies from five to seven miles, not an unreasonable distance"

"Because the services required by this bill are widely available off-campus, this bill is not necessary," Brown added at the time.

Campus Reform reports that 481,210 students are enrolled at CSU.

280,380 students are also enrolled on UC campuses for a total of 761,590 students.

More than half of those students are female.
