Harvard College Democrats call for expanded abortion access under student health fee

The Harvard College Democrats published an open letter to Harvard University Health Services on Sunday asking for increased abortion access for students.

HUHS does cover obstetrics and gynecology services for students who opt into the Student Health Insurance Plan, which costs over $4,000 per year. But many students choose to waive SHIP and only pay the $1,300 Student Health Fee, which does not cover gynecological services.

As of Wednesday evening, the letter has been signed by 17 student organizations, including the Harvard Pre-Medical Society, Tech for Social Good, and Our Harvard Can Do Better, an anti-sexual assault advocacy group.
