Vending machines that sell abortion pills and other contraceptives are now available for students of Stanford University, Dailywire reports.
“Stanford University recently installed a vending machine to dispense emergency contraceptives, including a generic brand of Plan-B, outside an ‘all-gender restroom’ in the student center,” according to Campus Reform.
The university also subsidizes the items sold in the vending machine, which means students can purchase contraception pill My Way for $25, three “internal condoms” for $9.99 and three “external condoms” for $3.99.
Stanford’s student government and five other offices fund the vending machine, which accepts credit cards and is installed near to another machine that dispenses food that can be taken with the pills.
The idea of putting an “abortion vending machine” on campus was started in 2015 by former Stanford graduate Rachel Samuels. She contends that many students supported the idea.
Some students say the vending machine is needed because it subsidizes the cost for My Way.
