Harvard Right to Life hosted a talk by Professor Dwight Duncan of UMass Law school on Wednesday, March 13. He led a discussion on the most recent legislation dealing with abortion, including the laws in NY and VA allowing abortion up to 9 months and the abortion survivors act which failed to pass. He also remarked on the movement of the pro-choice mentality in the last few years, saying that it is becoming increasingly radical and further from what most people actually want. He also defended the debated abortion survivors act- though there is legislation in place on the issue, it did not have any kind of repercussions if broken. The proposed bill would have, which is why not passing it is equivalent to supporting infanticide. We must continue to fight against this radicalized movement and defend the dignity of all human life! Thank you, Professor Duncan!
Thanks to Students for Life of America, we were able to host a screening of “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” on Monday, February 25. This movie tells the story of Kermit Gosnell and his abortion clinic, and the horrors that went on there. We welcomed a big crowd and collectively cried as we saw the sad truth behind Gosnell’s murder convictions.
We held a welcome back meeting for our members on Monday, Feb 11. We saw some new faces joining the pro-life cause on Harvard’s campus, discussed what events we wanted to put on over the next year, and made sure everyone knew our new board members. Highlights included a push to sidewalk counsel at a planned parenthood again, a desire to broaden our focus to all pro-life issues, not just abortion, and insomnia cookies.
