Video: Our visit to the Ivy League!

Last Thursday, Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard visited Columbia University to give a presentation on secular opposition to abortion. To date, Secular Pro-Life representatives have given talks at eight colleges: Liberty University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of San Francisco, University of Virginia, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, University of Mary Washington, University of Richmond, and now Columbia University, our very first visit to an Ivy League school!

"When Does Life Begin?" display on Thursday afternoon
Kelsey's presentation was attended by the members of Columbia Right to Life as well as visitors from the broader New York City pro-life community. Videos of the presentation and the Q&A session are below. Enjoy!

Actually, there is a precedent for donating an organ then wanting it back and being denied. I can't remember the name or name of individuals...but...There was the case of a man who had donated a kidney to his wife during their marriage, and when they were getting divorced, the man wanted it back. He made the argument that the kidney had been community property under their marriage terms, and he had a prenuptial agreement so he was trying to argue that he was due to get his property back. The judge ruled that organs (and I guess any sort of bodily tissue) do not count as "property" and is therefore exempt from typical property rules.
