The devaluation of human life by the left in America may have hit a sad new low. The culprit –surprise, surprise– the University of California system. KCRA, NBC News channel 3 out of Sacramento is reporting on a new vending machine on the nearby UC-Davis campus that is now selling morning-after abortion pills. Yes, in an effort to make the termination of a human life as convenient as grabbing a Baby Ruth bar or Diet Dr. Pepper, a vending machine for “Plan B” abortion pills is now located in the Activities and Recreation Center:
“Don’t expect to find filling snacks or thirst quenching drinks inside UC Davis’ newest vending machine. Instead, the university is offering a quick fix for that late night or early morning contraceptive need.
The vending machine inside the campus Activities and Recreation Center offers the morning after pill for $30, along with an assortment of other contraceptive items like condoms and pregnancy tests.”
So the process is perfectly laid out for your 19-year-old daughter: condom: if that fails (or gets skipped), pregnancy test, if that comes back positive, abortion pill.
“UC Davis senior Parteek Singh came up with the idea after a friend was unable to buy the morning after pill in a timely manner. “They were all out of emergency contraceptives and they weren’t going to get anything until Monday,” Singh said.
The vending machine is open 18 hours a day and is only inaccessible when the building shuts down between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. The only other place contraception is sold on campus is in the Student Health and Wellness Center, which is only open during business hours.”
Within the lifetime of many reading this story, women and men were housed in separate dorms on college campuses. Lights out in all dorms was 10 o’clock and stealing a kiss after a date was a rarity. How far we have come. Sure “boys would be boys” and “girls would be girls” but as we’ve now learned, colleges are instructing students that just because you’re a boy today you may not necessarily be one tomorrow. And just as easily, you can — oops — conceive a child and buy the means to destroy it, like you’re buying a Snickers.
The constant hammering of progressive ideology on college campuses while at the same time the thorough banishment of any other non-complying forms of thought ought to be concerning to all Americans. But this effort on the part of the University of California system to make abortion a “convenience” goes beyond ‘women’s rights’ or even conventional pro-choice dogma. This is now telling our young people that a life in the womb is the equivalent of a pack of Juicy Fruit gum, just slightly more expensive.
