Read this interesting Fusion piece about the students at UC Berkeley and their petition for on campus health centers to provide access to medical abortions to students. Meghan Warner, activist, says:
“Well-woman visits and birth control are the number one service our student health center provides,” Warner told me. “You would think they would want to make that comprehensive and provide abortion, too. But no one wants to be first. No one wants to be the first campus to do this. And I don’t think anyone is really against it at the health center, they just don’t want to deal with the opposition.
Another activist, Aanchal Chugh, said:
“In the articles I’ve seen about what I’m trying to do, they always use the word ‘radical,’” Chugh told me. “And you can use that word if you want. But my stance is that this is not radical at all … There’s nothing radical about wanting students to have accessibility to health care on campus.”
