A Catholic-run university in San Francisco pays for elective abortions in its student health insurance plans, according to a new investigation by The College Fix.

The University of San Francisco, which is run by the Jesuit Catholic religious order, included elective abortions and abortifacients in its insurance plans for the past two school years, possibly longer, The Fix reports.

The student health insurance plans are provided through Aetna. According to the investigation, the insurance pays for 80 percent of the cost of an abortion.

The discovery contracts the teachings of the Catholic Church, which teaches that every human being is valuable from conception to natural death and abortion is a grave moral evil.

Interestingly, The Fix also found that the university employs an abortion advocate. Vice Provost Julie Orio, who is in charge of student life activities at the university, used to serve on the board of Women’s Community Clinic, an abortion facility, according to the report.

The university did not respond to requests for comment from The Fix. The Archdiocese of San Francisco also declined to comment; however, the archdiocese is not involved in running the school.

California is one of the most pro-abortion states in the U.S. It forces taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions and soon will force all public colleges and universities to provide abortion drugs on campus for free to students.
