Fund your classmate's abortion, or leave school?

Students for Life of America is fighting to change a policy of the University of North Carolina. Like most colleges, UNC requires its students to have health insurance. Students who are uninsured must purchase a plan through UNC. The UNC plan includes abortion funding, and there is currently no way to opt out.

In other words, uninsured pro-lifers at UNC must either go against their convictions or transfer to another school. Some choice! SFLA has a website where you can learn more about the policy and sign a petition on behalf of pro-life UNC students and prospective students.

And now, for something completely different. In Illinois, a man has legally changed his name to One Nation Under God. Was it to draw attention to his faith? Or perhaps to support the pledge of allegiance? Nope, this is supposed to be a pro-life thing.
Under God described his name change as a "calling" to return Americans to "One Nation Under God" by overturning the legalization of abortion.

"Jan. 22, 1973, is the day the nation murdered God," Under God said.

That is the date the U.S. Supreme Court decided the case of Roe v. Wade.
Wow. Way to not help.

Longtime supporter Mishy Zhang points out that if he had really wanted to bring attention to the WHOLE pro-life movement, and not just its religious elements, Mr. Under God could have just changed his name to "Pro-Life" like this person did in 2008.
