Ohio State University “Sex Week” Features Valentines for Abortionists

GUEST POST: As part of “Sex Week” this year, abortion supporters at Ohio State University are encouraging students to send valentines to abortionist. “Sex Week” is an event that occurs on many college campuses to encourage promiscuity. Though the particulars vary from campus to campus, the week generally includes the promotion of risky sexual behavior with little to no factual information about conception and preborn life. 

With events promising to “rope you in” to discuss BDSM, the schedule for “Sex Week” at Ohio State University is par for the course.  These types of event, with their warped view of human sexuality, are fertile ground for the abortion lobby. In recent years pro-life students have spoken out against the anti-woman messages in many “Sex Week” presentations and the disregard for preborn human life. 

On February 16, the schedule for “Sex Week” at Ohio State University includes a valentines for abortionists event. The website states that the valentines are to thank abortionists for the “valuable work they do for reproductive rights.” It seems all the promiscuity promoted throughout the week does have an occasional downside: unintended pregnancy. The solution, according to the groups that run pro-abortion “Sex Week” is to disregard the rights of the preborn child and violently end her life.

Under the FAQs on the “Sex Week” website, organizers address the criticism of their partnership with Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in the United States. The “Sex Week” page falsely claims Planned Parenthood is “a huge provider of health services for men and women, particularly low-income women.” We’ve heard that one before. A variation of the “Abortion is only three percent of what Planned Parenthood does” myth, this is inaccurate. Planned Parenthood is first and foremost an abortion business that ends the lives of more than 320,000 preborn babies each year.

The answer does acknowledge that Planned Parenthood commits abortions. To defend partnering with the largest abortion chain in the nation, the organizers claim these are “abortions that women are legally entitled to.” Whether or not the killing of babies in the womb is legal does not make it right, as history has shown. The organizers refuse to outright lobby for abortion (even though that is what they are doing), suggesting “it [abortion] seems like a good thing to at least talk about.”

On the subject of pregnancy resource centers, “Sex Week” organizers are much less openminded. In response to the question, “Why don’t you partner with crisis pregnancy centers?” the team behind “Sex Week” states, “Pregnancy Crisis Centers are intended for pregnant people. Sex Week wants to educate people on how to avoid unwanted pregnancies. See where I’m going with this?” As it turns out, mothers undergoing an abortion are already pregnant, a state in which students are more likely to find themselves if they engage in the sexual practices encouraged throughout the rest of “Sex Week.”

Not leaving it at just a snarky comment, the answer goes on to insinuate that pro-life pregnancy centers compromise confidential medical information (they don’t) and falsely claim they are “unethical, misleading, inaccurate, and a threat to public health.” These vicious attacks of crisis pregnancy centers by the abortion lobby show that crisis pregnancy centers are a threat to the business model of big abortion. And that’s who really benefits from “Sex Week.” A week-long event encouraging students to engage in promiscuous behavior increasing the likelihood of unintended pregnancy and discouraging those same students from seeking aid from pregnancy help organizations means increased volume for the abortion industry.

The event at Ohio State University  is run by Student Advocates for Sexual Health Awareness, and the group told Fox News Digital that multiple departments at the university are paying for “Sex Week,” including the Ohio State University Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies and the College of Social Work. While organizers and representatives of Ohio State University insist they receive no tax dollars, they do receive funding through the Council on Student Affairs, which draws money from student activity fees. The pro-life students of Ohio State University do not want to spend their money on propaganda for the abortion industry, and they will be taking action.

SFLA President Kristan Hawkins told Fox News Digital, “It’s pathetic that schools are ignoring their mandate to educate students and instead act as though their real purpose is facilitating the parties. This is a great disservice to students. And a huge waste of money for parents,” Hawkins said. “Almost always ignored by these sponsors is the fact that you can’t protect emotionally vulnerable students from a broken heart when they follow the false pitch that all consequences — babies included — can be ignored.”
