  • Pro-life Campus Group Gets Zero Dollars

    Despite granting nearly $300,000 to LGBT groups to host speakers and put on events, California State University–San Marcos denied money to the Students for Life group on campus—and now the school faces a lawsuit.

    The pro-life organization requested $500, the capped amount granted to student groups from a cache of mandatory student fees, to host a speaker on the topic of “Abortion and Human Equality.”

    The school allegedly denied the request, and Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a lawsuit on behalf of the group and its president, Nathan Apodaca.

    “This is yet another example of a university using their power, along with student fees, to restrict speech they don’t agree with or particularly like, giving credence to the emerging fact that tolerance does not apply to pro-life or conservative speech,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America.

    Despite the $500 per semester cap, the school awarded the Gender Equity Center and the LGBQTA Pride Center with a combined $296,498 to host speakers and hold events during the 2016-2017 school year. That’s more than 20 percent of all the fees paid by students at the school.

    Cal State–San Marcos awarded less than 3 percent of student fees ($38,629) to all other campus groups.

    “Today’s college students will be tomorrow’s legislators, judges, commissioners, and voters,” said Casey Mattox, director of ADF’s Center for Academic Freedom. “But at Cal State–San Marcos they are learning that government can force citizens to pay for advocacy of the views it decides shall be orthodox and effectively exclude competing views. There can be no marketplace of ideas where the government simply funds its favored views.”

    The liberals don't care about human life. They don't consider fetus and embryos as humans. They have this belief that it is empowering for a woman to get rid of her responsibility. They call this progress which is a shame. The only kind of abortion I will approve is an ectopic pregnancy because it the baby will not survive anyway and it will kill the mother. These pro-choice people even want to abort 9 month old fetus.

    The government is pro-abortion because Pharmaceutical companies have commercial uses from the cells of aborted babies.

      If that supposed to be $500 per event or $500 per year? If it is the latter, then the Gender Equity Center and the LGBQTA Pride Center were overfunded by nearly 200 times what they should have received. At that point it shouldn't just be pro-life groups complaining but every other university group that was short-changed. They can't say they were making up for past years either, as that would cover 200 years and the campus was only founded in 1989.

      I did some more looking up and out of the more than 100 groups on campus, it seems that only the Gender Equity Center and the LGBQTA Pride Center are exempt from the $500 cap, or the ban on using funds to spend on speakers (ADFMedia). That just seems wrong. Rules should be equal for all the groups, not 2% or less of the groups getting 20% of campus funds and 98% or higher sharing a remaining 3%.

      (Can a campus say it is truly liberal if it discriminates against groups countering racism, poverty prejudice, disabled or autism abuse, etc, in favour of only funding LGBT issues?)
