This Comment examines the California Fourth District Court of Appeal's ruling in Erzinger v. Regents of the University of California, which upheld the state university's use of mandatory student fees to fund student abortion insurance. The author compares the students' arguments that the use of their fees violated their first amendment right to free association and free exercise of religion against recent Supreme Court cases of first amendment rights. The author concludes that, while the students' argument of free association was properly denied, their free exercise of religion claim should have been upheld.
