‘The Architect of the Whole Plan’: Harvard Law Graduate Ken Chesebro’s Path to Jan. 6
To the editors:
We applaud Paul R. Katz for identifying the urgent need for strong pro-choice action at Harvard and beyond (“Have Pro-Choicers Aborted Ship? op-ed, Jan. 4). At this very moment, reproductive rights are in grave danger. This threat is illustrated by the nomination of anti-choice Samuel Alito to our nation’s highest court and the refusal of pharmacies to stock or dispense emergency contraception, an Food and Drug Administratoin-approved medication that prevents unintended pregnancies and, thus, subsequent abortions.
It is at this critical moment that Harvard needs a strong pro-choice lobby. Unfortunately, due to a turnover in leadership, Students for Choice (SFC) has had a rough start in the ’05-’06 year. However, SFC will be making a strong comeback at the start of the spring semester. By February, we will re-formalize the organization’s structure and goals. We’ll kickoff the semester with a night of art and activism that will bring together Harvard’s pro-choice community. From there, SFC will work to educate the Harvard community on issues of reproductive rights, and will work on local, statewide, and national pro-choice campaigns.
We are extremely excited for the coming semester, and hope that our pro-choice allies will join us in our campaign to protect and expand reproductive rights.
