We demand the USU overturn their decision to approve the anti-choice club 'LifeChoices'
On Friday the 1st of June the USU board approved the formation of an anti-abortion society. This is an affront to all students on campus as it seeks to actively promote the disempowerment of women. The USU is supposed to promote positive campus culture not single-issue lobby groups. This isn't about freedom of speech or equal opportunity. Clubs with anti-choice views already exist on campus - in fact there are several of them. This is about funding and giving legitimacy to a group whose sole target is women. This ‘LifeChoice’ Society is an attack on women’s rights and by allowing its formation the Union is failing its students and undermining the inclusiveness it seeks to promote.
