WASHINGTON D.C. (05-24-19) –Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins made the following comments in light of proposed rule changes to the ACA healthcare law that touches on the protections in Title IX. The proposed changes indicate that no longer will abortion be advanced in the healthcare law to avoid accusations of “discrimination” on the basis of sex. Hawkins said: “Pregnancy is not a disease cured by abortion. A bias in favor of abortion should not be our policy, as pregnant and parenting women deserve support and assistance, rather than pressure to end a child’s life. The prejudice against pregnant women and in favor of abortion should be stripped from the law in favor of life-affirming care.”
