“Christian” University Will Pay for Students to Kill Their Babies in Abortions

Wesleyan University, a prominent and supposedly Christian school, plans to begin paying for students to abort their unborn babies this fall.

Over the weekend, a university spokesperson confirmed the news in response to demands from the pro-abortion club Young Democratic Socialists of America, NBC Connecticut reports.

Wesleyan University is a private Methodist Episcopal university in Middletown, Connecticut. Founded in 1831, it was named after Methodist founder and Christian evangelist John Wesley. However, the school has strayed from its Christian roots in recent years by hosting pro-abortion events that promote killing unborn babies in abortions.

Starting in the fall, the university will pay for elective abortions, contraception and other reproductive health care services for all students, the Hartford Courant reports. The school also will pay students’ travel expenses for abortions.

The announcement comes in response to a campaign from the university chapter of Young Democratic Socialists of America, prompted by the overturning of Roe v. Wade, according to the report.

The club collected more than 700 signatures on a petition supporting abortions, and club leaders said they reached an agreement last week with university administrators. According to the Courant, a school spokesman confirmed the agreement Friday.

“With the start of (the) fall semester, Wesleyan will ensure that there is no financial cost borne by students to access abortion by covering all medical costs after insurance, paying for transportation to and from the clinic and providing appropriate pain-relief medication after the procedure,” the socialist club said in a statement. “Additionally, they have agreed to provide emergency contraceptives (Plan B and Ella) to all students on campus, free at the point of service.”

Ella also can cause an early abortion.

The club claimed the cost of an abortion is a “significant barrier to meeting the needs of all students,” and its demands are part of a “movement for reproductive justice nationwide.”

“Wesleyan now plays a pioneering role in reproductive healthcare among private liberal arts colleges by committing to cover the entire cost of abortion after insurance for all students,” the club said.

However, the demands are very one-sided and pro-abortion, not “pro-choice.” Prenatal care, childbirth, maternity leave, childcare and other support for pregnant and parenting students was not mentioned.

Abortion activists are pushing to expand abortions on college campuses across the U.S. This year, California began forcing public colleges and universities to provide abortions on campus, and New York just passed a bill to do the same.

Meanwhile, many of the same people supporting these efforts also are working to shut down pregnancy resource centers and other pro-life charities that provide free support services to help families choose life for their babies.
