Pro-Life Students Equated to White Supremacists

Pro-Life Students Equated to White Supremacists, Denied Official Club Status at Johns Hopkins

On March 12th, a pro-life group at Johns Hopkins University, Voice for Life (VFL), was denied the right to become an official student club by the Student Government Association (SGA), after having been recommended for approval by the SGA Appointments and Evaluations Committee.

The SGA explained that they decided not to grant official club status to Voice for Life because:
1) The pro-life group’s intentions to peacefully engage in sidewalk counseling off campus at a Baltimore abortion facility “clearly violates the JHU Harassment and Code of Conduct policies.”
2) One of the 100 pro-life organization links on the Voice for Life website sent visitors to the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform’s website, which was judged to be “offensive.” CBR has brought their Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) to Baltimore, which features images of aborted preborn babies, as well as Holocaust victims, and victims of lynching.

An anonymous person forwarded an email chain between SGA members in a listserv that talked about Voice for Life. One top SGA executive member sent a simple statement, “And this is why we don’t approve groups like Voice for Life,” and linked to a Think Progress article entitled “Racist Hate Group To Conduct Nighttime Patrols On College Campus” about a white supremacist group at Towson University called the White Student Union.

Abortion is the greatest human rights battle our nation currently faces, and we can’t allow it to be swept under the rug at Johns Hopkins or at any university. The time is now for pro-lifers across the nation to act and contact the JHU President, Ronald Daniels, and demand he step in and defend the constitutional rights of these JHU students.

Contact JHU’s President Ronald Daniels at:
Office of the President
Phone: 410-516-8068
Fax: 410-516-6097

Tell him to approve the pro-life group Voice for Life as an official group on campus right away!
