Barnard College will offer abortion pills for students

Barnard College, a private women’s college in New York City, will give students access to medication abortion — abortion pills — as soon as fall of next year, school officials announced Thursday.

The move, a direct response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v.
