Abortion isn't the way to empower women

Though some college officials may soon buy into the Biden administration's push for more access to abortion, pro-lifers are working to make sure that women know abortion isn't necessary for them to succeed.

Vice President Kamala Harris this week held a closed-door meeting with college presidents at the White House to discuss the expansion of access to abortion on campuses throughout the country.

Sarah Michalak of Students for Life of America (SFLA) tells American Family News that is the product of the Biden administration's promotion of the notion that abortion is necessary for women to succeed.

"That's not really true empowerment for women," Michalak contends. "I don't find putting Plan B vending machines on campus or pushing chemical abortions to be support or really helping women choose their future."

She says the campaign is part of a strategy from the Biden administration and the abortion cartel in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, the Supreme Court ruled that abortion is not a constitutional right and that states may protect unborn babies' right to life. Prior to the ruling, hundreds of female scholars and professionals told the high court in a brief that they did not need to abort their unborn children to succeed.

"The response after Dobbs has been just push as much abortion as possible, including chemical abortion, which is four times riskier than surgical abortions are for women," Michalak observes. "They're pushing these through the mail."

So, if the Biden administration has its way, then Plan B vending machines could soon be showing up on the nation's college campuses, and chemical abortions will be more prominent. SFLA, however, will continue to spread the word that real help is available for women and that they can choose life for their child and still be successful in their own lives.

Tennessee State University President Glenda Glover, Reed College President Audrey Bilger, Gallaudet University President Roberta Cordano, Howard University President Wayne Frederick, Dartmouth College President Philip Hanlon, City University of New York Chancellor Félix Matos Rodriguez, and University of California at Irvine Chancellor Howard Gillman were among those in attendance at the meeting.
