Thanks to a $5,000 grant from Planned Parenthood, a pro-abortion student group at Brandeis University is planning to install a vending machine on campus to provide Plan B free of charge.
According to The Brandeis Hoot, Brandeis Pro-Choice is working with the Student Union and school administrators to install the machine on campus by the end of the current academic year, in May.
Brandeis Pro-Choice is an on-campus activist group that promotes “abortion…[and] adequate access to contraception,” with a goal of fighting “for reproductive justice,” garnering the support of the school’s administration.
Administrators have been “encouraging,” said Abigail Belyea, a Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major who serves as events director for Brandeis Pro-Choice.
“They’re busy especially this time of year so it’s definitely been maybe a little slower than what we would want…but they’ve been encouraging,” she told the Hoot. “I think once we can finally meet with them and actually talk about logistics it will be more concrete.”
