Kristan Hawkins: Colleges should run from ‘dangerous,’ costly abortion drugs on campus

Thursday 09:55 GMT

To protect the educational environment, avoid costly liability and legal costs, and affirm student health centers’ goal of doing no harm to those they serve, California legislators should reject the risky, costly and dangerous proposal that is SB-24.

With schools counting the costs of things like fraternities or credit card marketing on campuses, the renewed push to force all California college and university health care centers to distribute chemical abortion drugs is hard to fathom.

Wednesday 15:25 GMT

In fact, research has found that millennials are twice as likely to report lying on a resume as the general population, and the number is even higher for Gen Z (today's college students).

Elizabeth Warren's polarizing plan to make college free

Wednesday 19:04 GMT

The evidence certainly suggests that the "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" argument against Warren's proposal is tone-deaf at best and historically ignorant at worst — and that, at the very least, it is worth renewing the commitment by state governments to subsidize their local colleges and universities.

Her latest offering is a detailed proposal to make two- and four-year public colleges free for students, accompanied by plans to forgive the student loans of up to 42 million Americans, plus a pledge of at least $50 billion in new funding to support historically black colleges and universities.
