Students for Life Action’s Fight to Restrict Abortion Vendors from Taxpayer Funded, Federal Property Carries On

“We want to make it clear that we are not going to support establishing abortion infrastructure on taxpayer-funded property in states that have rejected the inhumane destruction of preborn life. Uncle Sam should not be in the abortion business,” Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins said in a previous statement.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (07-28-2023) – With a new report emerging from the Washington Examiner stating architecture scholars were recently awarded funds to support their projects including transport for abortion, Students for Life Action responded by saying its previous call to Congress remains needed as federal lands are no place for abortion vendors.

In the days following the reversal of Roe v. Wade, SFLAction led a nearly 40 organization coalition effort to prevent the misuse of federal property for abortion vendor operations. The letter reads in part:

“On Friday, June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down their decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which reversed Roe v. Wade. The Court determined that there is not a right to an abortion under the Constitution of the United States. Thus, the decision on how and when to restrict or allow abortions is left to the American people through their elected representatives. Rather than respecting the rule of law as detailed in both our Constitution and in state law, many abortion radicals immediately began looking for ways to circumvent them and, by extension, the rights of pro-life citizens to protect life in law. The stated plans to force abortion into states where voters and their representatives have recognized the humanity of preborn children and passed laws to protect them represent both a coercive abuse of power and a proposed misuse of federal property. We the undersigned join together calling on members of Congress to prevent taxpayer funded properties from being perversely turned into abortion vendors.

“Those committed to a radical agenda of abortion through all nine months, for any reason at all, and with taxpayer support will have to win support for that extremism in the ballot box rather than by creating a perverse kind of eminent domain. We live in unprecedented times in which the Biden Administration and its allies have as a top goal ending the lives of many citizens, and we call on Congress to prevent the misuse of taxpayer funded properties for that cruel and inhumane end.”
