The student government at Colorado State condemned a local pro-life pregnancy center in a diatribe-filled resolution but a pro-life student group turned the tables on the far-left students.
Alpha Center, a pregnancy center operating in Fort Collins, was named in a rambling, buzzword-filled resolution that accused the center of preying on students with “cisnormative and heteronormative” practices and a “gendered and non-inclusive” environment that distressed students who visited.
The left-wing attack on the center stirred up the university’s Students for Life chapter, which fired back with a letter to editor accusing the student government of harming the “inclusive” campus with false claims, hateful language, stereotyping, and religious discrimination.
The resolution claims the pregnancy center hides its religious and pro-life views, the Students for Life letter states, when the website identifies the facility as a “Christian medical clinic.”
Matt Lamb of The College Fix says the student government passed the resolution in an effort to censor Students for Life from advertising the Alpha Center to fellow students on campus.
"They didn't really provide any examples,” he tells One News Now, “of how this specific place was misleading students.”
The website for the pregnancy center, in fact, describes abortion choices such as surgical abortion or taking the abortion pill Mifepristone. Below that information, the clinic states it does not provide abortions or give referrals.
In the College Fix story about the resolution, one student senator claimed the pregnancy clinic is a “tool of oppression and colonization.”
The resolution that claims to defend females carefully tip toes around describing women and girls: It refers instead to “AFAB (assigned female at birth)" students on the Fort Collins campus, which is likely an effort to recognize transgender and "nonbinary" students, too.
"This experience," the resolution says of traumatized students, "is not limited to cisgender women, but all individuals assigned female at birth, who have a uterus, can experience adversity" at the Alpha Center.
"Everyone agrees that resources should market their services responsibly," the Students for Life letter countered, "but singling out faith-based health care providers and inferring they are collectively dangerous and misleading is a form of religious discrimination."
