Advocates for Youth Celebrates the Passage of Bill Expanding Access to Medication Abortion on Campus in New York
Advocates for Youth applauds the New York Assembly and New York State Senate for passing legislation that would help ensure students on college campuses have access to abortion. The bill would require SUNY and CUNY campuses to provide access to medication abortion.
College students led efforts to pass the bill. In 2022, Barnard College agreed to offer medication on campus after lengthy student activist efforts. New York’s youth-led Reproductive Justice Collective spearheaded the initiative for a state-wide bill.
