Last week friends from Yale Law School and Yale Divinity School sent me an article in the Yale Daily News that covered the Reproductive Rights Action League at Yale (RALY) and the Yale Medical Students for Choice commemoration of Roe v. Wade . While other students were participating in the March for Life , these Ivy Leaguers were performing mock abortions—and generating a huge crowd of 15 people. Here’s what one of the organizers—a medical student at Yale—was reported as saying:

“It’s not as scary as it seems. It’s just blood and mucus,” Khoury said, referring to the fetus remains in the device. She added, “You’ll be able to see arms and stuff, but still just miniscule.” . . .

“Often times, women are crying and cursing and saying they’re going to hell,” Khoury said. “It may be a quick and easy medical procedure, but it definitely is a very involved social-medical procedure.”

The presenters also urged the crowd to become involved in the abortion-rights movement by joining Reproductive Health Externships, a campaign in which volunteers are taught how to conduct abortions. “It’s fun because you meet people from all over the country who do them,” Khoury said. “It’s pretty inspiring.”

I wanted to share Khoury’s inspiration with FT readers, but I couldn’t link to the story last week because Yale Daily News took it down from their website. Later in the week, a different, sanitized, article went up in its place—writen by Khoury!

LifeSiteNews has the story here .
