FFL President Serrin Foster’s latest op-ed, SB-320: Should Public Universities Offer Abortions Via the Pill? Feminists for Life Say “No.” has just been published on Naomi Wolf’s site, DailyClout.
From Serrin’s article:
Requiring state college health centers to stock medication abortion is not the answer. Tangible support, including housing and child care, empowers women — especially poor and minority women — at a critical life juncture and allows them to make a true choice, not one driven by a lack of options.
Studies show that children of educated mothers have much better lifetime outcomes. Should we not do all we can to support student mothers (and fathers) for themselves as well as for the next generation?
