Last Spring, the student government at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) refused to approve the new pro-life group on campus, JHU Voice for Life. Student government members were “concerned” about letting a group like Voice for Life, which wanted to educate students about abortion and reach out to women facing unplanned pregnancies. The student government members even got nasty, with one comparing pro-life students to a white supremicist group.
It’s been a year now, and JHU Voice for Life is standing strong on their campus, engaging in respectful discussions about abortion and reaching out to those most vulnerable in Baltimore. They even won our Students for Life of America 2014 New Group of the Year award this January. However, the pro-abortion group that launched to counter Voice for Life has taken a different direction…seeing how far outside the mainstream they can go. Last Spring, SFLA reported that members of Voice for Choice went topless on campus for their inaugural event, “Tits at Twelve,” wearing only electric tape to cover themselves. (See here.)
Now, they’ve done it again. On April 4th, JHU Voice for Choice hosted a bake sale to raise money for the DC Abortion Fund. Yep, they sold yummy cookies and cupcakes to Johns Hopkins students in an effort to make sure thousands of babies in D.C. never had the chance to try them. In case you felt that men might have been overlooked in this effort– never fear! There was a delightful cake sold in the shape of male genitalia that could also be purchased to support abortion access.
Thankfully, the group only collected $110 for the DC Abortion Fund, unlike the thousands of dollars Students for Life groups collect when they raise support for local pregnancy resource centers. JHU Voice for Choice claims to be an advocate for women on campus. However, they are only choosing to degrade women by funding abortions, which harm women physically and emotionally.
