Univ. of Alabama Returns $21.5 Million Gift Amid Protests Over State’s Pro-Life Law

June 11, 2019 | Posted in Abortion | By

As a lifelong Razorback fan, I never thought I’d be proud of the University of Alabama for something, but here goes. . . .

Last week the University of Alabama returned a $21.5 million donation to the school’s largest donor and removed the donor’s name from the university’s law school.

The actions came after the donor called on students to boycott the university following Alabama’s passage of a new pro-life law that generally prohibits most abortions.

NPR reports,

The University of Alabama’s board of trustees has voted to return a $21.5 million gift from Hugh Culverhouse Jr. — the school’s biggest donor — and take his name off its law school. The move comes after Culverhouse urged businesses and prospective students to boycott the university and the state over Alabama’s new abortion law.

The school says the transaction to return the funds was processed Friday morning and that it will also return any accrued interest. Last fall, Culverhouse pledged to donate a total of $26.5 million over four years. . . .

Culverhouse issued a statement Friday in which he renewed his call for students “to protest and reconsider their educational options in Alabama.”

A lot of schools would be reluctant to give up that kind of money.

Hats off to the Board of Trustees at the University of Alabama for having the backbone and conviction to do what’s right.

Presidential Hopeful Joe Biden Supports “Controversial Abortion Rule”: News Outlet

June 5, 2019 | Posted in Abortion | By

Today The Hill reported that presidential hopeful Joe Biden still supports a “controversial abortion rule.”

In fact, Biden appears to be the only Democratic candidate who supports the rule.

What is this controversial rule, you might ask?

It’s the Hyde Amendment that generally prevents federal funds from being used to kill unborn children.

As you may know, the Hyde Amendment technically isn’t a federal amendment at all. It’s language tacked onto the federal budget each year that says federal funds won’t be used to pay for abortion, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life and health of the mother.

The Hyde Amendment is a delicate compromise that congress settled for regarding abortion 43 years ago, and it wasn’t really deemed “controversial” by politicians or pundits until relatively recently.

It’s baffling why the Hyde Amendment has become such a hot topic in recent years. 

This is a bipartisan budget provision that’s been on the books for more than four decades, and all it does is prevent Americans from being forced to subsidize abortions with their tax dollars.

Abortion advocates have often said, “If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one.”

Without the Hyde Amendment, however, even if you don’t like abortion and don’t have an abortion, you could still be forced to pay for an abortion with your taxes.
