Thousands of ASU students flooded Arizona’s state capitol today, protesting a bill that would fund abortions at state universities. The students were outraged that taxpayers would be forced to pay for something they philosophically disagreed with, destroying a human life. A lead organizer stood in front of the Capitol with ASU President Michael Crowe and listed off the reasons why abortion is murder and should not be funded by the universities.
Troublesome? Surprised that THOUSANDS of students showed up, as well as the university president? This scenario is what could have happened if students were PAID to show up and protest for a politically favored agenda promoted by the universities. In reality, today, University of Arizona students were given CLASS CREDIT for showing up at the state Capitol and protesting cuts in funding to the universities (remember ASU is already the biggest university in the U.S. – not sure why Arizona’s public universities need to continue growing)
Here is a very powerful video sweeping the country this week we may as well show you while we’re on the topic –
And guess who was behind today’s student-credited protest? That’s right, the Democrat Party. It wasn’t just some students. Wonder how they got UA to give students credit for showing up? Here is an email they sent out:
Subject: Join the rally against university cuts TODAY!
Arizona Democratic Party
Republicans are planning to slash university funding 40 percent – even while they give away hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate tax breaks!
This is irresponsible, short-sighted and unnecessary. Let’s raise our voices together and tell the Republicans we will not be silent while they shortchange our schools.
Come show the Republicans the power of our beliefs: that we need to invest in our future, that universities create good jobs and that all Arizona students should have access to a solid education!
Park at the Arizona Democratic Party, 2910 N. Central Ave., and travel to the Capitol via light rail and the Dash.
What: Rally against university cuts!
Where: State Capitol, 1700 W Washington St. Phoenix 85007 – map
When: TODAY! @ Noon
