New York Times reporters pressed colleges to bow to the demands of left-wing activist students and provide abortion services to students in Wednesday’s “Colleges Are Resisting Demands to Provide the Abortion Pill.”
Liberals insist that they’re pro-choice and not pro-abortion. This newspaper, however, promotes abortion as an essential right.
Colleges pride themselves in offering a variety of reproductive and sexual health services to their students. This includes birth control and screenings for sexually transmitted disease. Some colleges even offer insurance coverage for terminations.
However, they are not able to offer abortion as a pill or procedure. For that, they refer students to other clinics or doctors’ offices.
For some students, that standard of care is no longer good enough, not with the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe V. WadeThe college should be able to provide abortion access, lessen stress, obstacles and allow women to have more control and autonomy over the whole process.
Many women wish to have an unplanned pregnancy ended.
The way the sources in the story by Anemona Hartocollis and Stephanie Saul identify themselves prove one can’t be too woke for the pro-choice movement.
Niharika Rao is a Barnard College senior who uses the pronouns, said students had demanded that medication abortion be made available on campus: “College student access to abortion is being stigmatized and politicized,” they said….“Having to travel an hour there and an hour back on the bus, that could be missing an entire lab,” said Mx. Zenobia also advocates for transgender students in the abortion industry.
Although there were no pronouns, the pro-life side scored a few points.
Carol Tobias is the president of National Right to Life Committee. She stated that the possibility of complications such as undiagnosed or untreated ectopic pregnancies could be created by offering campus medication abortion. “I just don’t think this should be handed out like aspirin on college campuses to young girls who may not be aware of what’s happening,” she said.
The reporters later committed violence against language.
The activists also hope that abortion doulas Can support women who are taking medications for an abortion. Advocates for Youth was a reproductive health organization that trained 100 individuals to be doulas in abortion. This included three quarters of current and recent college students. The doulas can provide support for those who are going through an abortion.
The paper’s abortion advocacy has become a depressing drumbeat. Sunday’s front page featured “Abortion Bans Leaving Young at Higher Risk.” Pro-lifers would point out that leaving off a word of that headline would make a truer statement: “Abortion Leaving Young at Higher Risk.”
One of the most offensive was a fawning Times profile of the co-creator of The Daily Show Lizz Winstead: “Using Comedy to Push for Abortion Rights.” Melena Ryzik’s story on Winstead’s abortion fundraiser show (“Bro v. Wade”) launched with a “funny” quote from Winstead.
“Things are awesome — never better!” joked Lizz Winstead, the comedian, producer and abortion rights activist. “Sleeping well; no diarrhea. Things are awesome.”
Things are decidedly not awesome, but comic misdirection might as well be oxygen for Winstead, who has banked her career on satirizing politics and media and calling out hypocrisy, as the co-creator of The Daily Show and a host and director on the now-defunct left-wing radio network Air America. For the most part, her focus has been on one topic, abortion, for much of the past decade. The variety show is her preferred way to convey her message: A little bit of song, some schtick, and a lot of taboo talk.
