We need your help. SB2030, the bill that prohibits public universities from partnering with entities involved with abortion, will be voted on Monday in the Senate. The bill has been in conference committee and the committee finally accepted the House’s amendments, which left in the abortion restriction.
University officials, Planned Parenthood, and abortion advocates are working to stop this bill, claiming it interferes with academic freedom. As reported in the Forum, Florin Salajan, NDSU Faculty Senate president said lawmakers “want to direct and dictate what research would be acceptable to them because of their political or moral or ethical convictions, and they shouldn’t.” In other words, NDSU does not want to be subjected to the morals or ethics of North Dakota citizens, as represented by our Legislature. This is just not acceptable, taking taxpayer money and not being accountable.
