A campus group that seeks to "protect and promote respect for all life from conception to natural death" is dangerous to college students.
At least that's what the student newspaper at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) says about the pro-life group, "Case for Life." The editorial board of The Observer claimed the group's mere existence is "a danger to the student body." They added:
"It is not just that students have to worry about laws that impose on their bodily autonomy, but they also have to worry about being in an environment that is supposed to be safe but isn't. Who could care less if someone is pro-forced-birth, but when that someone takes action to enforce that opinion on others—that's when it becomes dangerous."
For now, perhaps surprisingly, the University is siding with "Case for Life." In a statement, CWRU said "[I]t is not the proper role of the University to exclude or suppress those ideas some may find unwelcome, disagreeable, or even offensive.'"
It's likely the school will continue to face criticism for its support of the First Amendment, so take a few minutes today to contact the school and thank them for making the right decision.
