A California university came under fire for dispensing Plan B contraceptive pill in a vending machine, with one critic calling the move inadequate in meeting the real needs of women.
"Colleges and universities should be offering pregnant and parenting students options of housing, financial aid, diaper decks, and childcare instead of handing over abortion drugs," said Kristan Hawkins, executive director of Students for Life.
"No woman should be forced to choose between the life of her child and her education," she told CNA.
A study room at the University of California Davis recently installed a "Wellness To Go" vending machine that includes Plan B among other items such as condoms, tampons, pregnancy tests and Advil.
