41 Colleges and Universities Pay for Free Abortions for Students in Their Health Care Plans

At least 41 colleges and universities in the U.S. cover elective abortions without restriction in their student health insurance plans, according to new research from The College Fix.

College campuses frequently are scenes for radical abortion activism, and women in their late teens and early twenties are the age group that has the most abortions. Some pregnant and parenting students report hostile attitudes from other students and even school faculty when they choose life for their babies.

So, the new research comes as little surprise. Aborting an unborn baby often is touted as a solution to young pregnant women who are pursuing education and career goals.

According to The Fix, many schools provide abortion coverage in their student health plans to some extent, but at least 41 provide “100-percent coverage of abortion” without limits.

The schools include 11 California State University campuses, Carnegie Mellon University, Orange Coast College, Syracuse University, Columbia University, the New York Institute of Technology, the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and the Center for English as a Second Language at the University of Arizona, the report found.

Some students, even if they do not want the coverage or have a moral objection to it, also are required to have health insurance through their school, according to the campus news outlet. Often it is international students who fall under this requirement.

Here’s more from the report:

Aetna offers 155 plans to schools across the country. Schools may customize the plans to their likings.

Some schools have moderate to strict restrictions on controversial procedures like abortions. Yet 41 universities and colleges include 100% coverage of abortions for their students.

The College Fix contacted each of the 41 schools, but few were willing to comment. At least two, the University of California Student Health Counseling office and the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, said they were too busy to comment because of the current “health crisis.”

In 2023, the problem will get even worse. Late last year, California passed a law mandating that all public colleges and universities provide abortion drugs to students free of charge beginning in 2023.

Now, New York, Washington state and Massachusetts are considering similar legislation.

Meanwhile, pro-lifers provide support to pregnant and parenting students across the country. Many Students for Life clubs advocate for pregnant and parenting students’ rights, host baby showers and offer babysitting, information and other resources to help their peers. The organization’s Pregnant on Campus also links students to local pregnancy resource centers, maternity homes, adoption agencies and other organizations that provide support.
