George Saussy of the Yale Daily News has the story. Nothing in his report indicates loud aggressive protests by liberal students. I wonder why.

Yale hosts first pro-life conference

Last weekend Yale hosted Vita et Veritas, the first pro-life conference to be held at the University.

Presented by the student organization, Choose Life at Yale, the conference featured speakers and panels representing a wide range of pro-life perspectives on the issue of abortion. Students involved with planning the conference and representatives from sponsoring pro-life groups said they hoped the event helps educate the Yale community about the pro-life stance and encourage students to create a more pro-life campus.

“The dialogue is expanding and not just at Yale, but everywhere,” said Suzy Ismail, a speaker from the Center for Muslim Life who participated in an interfaith panel this weekend.

The interfaith panel, which took place on Friday, discussed the importance of cooperation in the pro-life community between religious and secular groups. Ismail, who spoke for the Muslim pro-life community, said many Muslims do not speak out about abortion despite holding pro-life views. In the past, Ismail said she has been told, “Don’t talk about that,” when she has spoken about abortion at Muslim conferences.

Muslims have a responsibility to speak out on this issue, she said.
