Our efforts to ensure that all students have effective access to abortions has been endorsed by political leaders, reproductive rights advocates, media figures, and prominent Columbia University faculty.
Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney
“I stand with the Columbia University College Democrats in their campaign to ensure all students seeking abortions are guaranteed the full financial protections and confidentiality they had up until this year.
Columbia University should support its students when they are making difficult medical decisions, and should actively protect each young woman’s fundamental right to choose and to exercise that choice safely.”
NARAL Pro-Choice New York
“As the state’s premier pro-choice political and legislative advocacy organization, NARAL Pro-Choice New York understands the challenges young women can face in accessing essential reproductive health care services. We support the aims of the Columbia University Democrats to ensure that students can continue to receive confidential coverage for the services they need, including abortion care. When a woman needs to end her pregnancy, it is important that she have coverage for the safe medical care she needs.”
