… Gavin Newsom signed a bill on Friday requiring that public universities provide medication abortion on campus.

“After three years of working to expand access to medication abortion at our public universities, I am thrilled that Governor Newsom rejected the misguided paths that other states have taken in limiting access to abortion care,” state Sen. Connie Leyva, who wrote the bill, said in a statement. “Abortion is a protected right, and it is important that everyone — including college students — have access to that right, if they so choose.”
