It looks like the pro-choice Feminist Studies professor who assaulted a pro-life teen on the campus of UC Santa Barbara is looking for financial assistance due to “growing legal fees”
In March, the Santa Barbara District Attorney filed charges of grand theft, battery, and vandalism against Professor Mireille Miller-Young for violence she committed against young pro-life activists who held a peaceful outreach on the UC Santa Barbara campus on March 4th.
Stephanie Gilmore, Ph.D. who describes herself as the editor for the Committee on LGBT History and a member of the editorial collective for the academic journal Feminist Studies has posted this plea for help on behalf of the pro-choice professor, “Dr. Mireille Miller-Young is facing increasingly high legal fees as a result of her activism in response to antichoice demonstrators. Of course, the legal system will determine the outcome of her case. But if you are inclined to help with the fees she will have to pay — to her attorney and possibly to restitution — please donate here. All money raised will go directly to Mireille.“
The notice has since been removed but not before the group on facebook Fire Mierille Miller Young saved a copy.
Gilmore penned her support for the violent actions of Miller-Young in a Feminist-Wire blog where she writes, “In the early 1990s, I volunteered as an escort at a women’s clinic that provided, among many other services, legal abortion…A court of law will determine the outcome of any legal actions that result from the situation. Legal agencies will also determine whether or not the actions of groups like LA Survivors are terroristic. But I stand with Mireille Miller-Young because she stands with women – ALL women – in the face of political intimidation and harassment. She is a warrior who deserves our support and praise…Mireille Miller-Young took a stand, rejected what she saw as a type of terrorism, and defended her right to her bodily integrity (after all, she is a human being). In so doing, she defended all of us. I am in solidarity with Mireille Miller-Young.”
On March 4, 2014, he radical pro-abortion professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara made headlines when she went berserk on a group of pro-life advocates on campus earlier this month.
The professor claimed that she set a good example when she attempted to incite students to violence and initiated the theft of a pro-life activist’s sign. We hope that the only example set by her actions is that crime will not be tolerated by the DA, nor the University of California. The prosecution should reach a resolution that deters anyone from committing these crimes again.
Catherine Short is the mother of 21-year-old Joan Short and 16-year-old Trin Short, two of the young women assaulted by the professor. She is also an attorney and Life Legal Defense Foundation Legal Director and issued a full statement about the case HERE.
Thrin Short was also interviewed on the pro-life TV show – Life Talk which can be viewed here:
Crutcher asked why parents would send their kids to a school with such poor judgment that they did not fire Miller-Young immediately, “What is wrong with the parents and the students who are going there …paying all this money to go to an institution that would have a woman like this on staff. Why wasn’t she fired? If I had a kid going there, first off I am going to call the school and say, you’re not getting another nickel from me as long as this woman’s on staff. Because, it indicates bad judgment on your part. You’re judgment is so poor that this woman can admit that she did this thing, and then come out and say, I had the right to do it? And you’re going to keep her on staff, and you’re going to let her try to mold young minds? Not with my money, you’re not. Why are students still going there and why are parents still paying for it? That’s the part I don’t understand,” Crutcher stated.
Crutcher is publicly calling for the professor to be fired.
Short told Life Talk that the professor injured her scratching her arms.
I would ask UC Santa Barbara, Vice Chancellor Michael D. Young just who was the intolerant one here?
