University officials love to talk about what they contribute to local economies, no matter how inflated those claims may be. They are more reticent about discussing some of their other activities. “Students for Life released a new study  on University Abortion Health Care Plans, announcing that out of the 200 largest universities in the United States,” Kristan Hawkins  reported on lifenews.com recently, “44% covered elective abortions and almost half of those universities automatically charge students for their abortion healthcare.”
“And, as mentioned  by Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, on Tuesday night  on the floor of the House of Representatives, we also found that federal taxpayer dollars could be used to fund these abortions through federal education grants.
“Now, new information from students at University of Virginia reveals that the University of Virginia (UVA) and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) have been performing secret abortions on campus for over twenty years! Because both schools are state institutions, both state and federal tax dollars are going towards these on campus abortions.
“From 1988-2009, UVA facilities aborted 2,480 and VCU aborted 9,120 preborn lives.” Hawkins serves as executive director of Students for Life.
