Our UNC-Wilmington LGBTQIA Office is committed to equality. One of the ways they seek to promote equality is by promoting the dismemberment of innocent humans while they are trapped inside the womb. If you think these folks are compassionate then you're probably not on their mailing list. I received the following email from them just last week. It's reprinted below and interspersed with my usual biting commentary:
"Good Afternoon, The semester is off to a busy start, and there are many program [sic] to look forward to this Spring. I wanted to remind you of an event being co-sponsored by SGA, UNCW NARAL and the LGBTQIA Resource Office next week."
First, note that the student government association, or SGA, is sponsoring this event. It isn't without cost to the public. This significance of this will be apparent as we read the rest of the email sent by government employees using government resources.
"On Tuesday, January 21, to celebrate the 41st Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, there will be a showing of After Tiller at 7:00 in Lumina Theater. This showing is free and open to the public."
Note that the event is not free to the public because the taxpayers who attend pay for it with their taxes. Note also that this is not a discussion of Roe v. Wade. It is a "celebration" of Roe v. Wade. One hundred percent of UNCW money dedicated to discussion of abortion is decidedly pro-abortion. No dissenting opinions are ever funded by UNCW. The university has a clear position on abortion. That position is decidedly pro-Roe v. Wade. That is why university officials have lied to crisis pregnancy centers to keep them off the Women's Resource Center web page in the past - even as they promoted the services of Planned Parenthood, including, but not limited to, the termination of the lives of unborn human beings.
"About the film: After Tiller intimately explores the highly controversial subject of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of practitioner Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the United States, all former colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who risk their lives every day in the name of their unwavering commitment toward their patients. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique look at one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they’ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way."
