Student Suing University of Louisville Medical, Alleging He Was Expelled Over Pro-Life Views
“They are saying I was being unprofessional, but all I’ve done is to be a vocal pro-life student, standing up to bullies”
Being pro-life is one of those things that can get you in trouble on many college campuses. The left considers the debate closed on the issue.

Student expelled from University of Louisville over pro-life views, lawsuit claims
A four-year medical student has filed a lawsuit against officials at the University of Louisville School of Medicine, accusing them of discriminating against him over his pro-life activism.
Austin Clark of Louisville filed an amended complaint last week in U.S. District Court against ULSOM President Neeli Bendapudi and 13 others after being expelled in July 2020.
Clark, who formerly headed ULSOM’s Medical Students for Life group, accused the officials of harassing and eventually expelling him in retaliation for a 2018 pro-life event he hosted.
The 2018 event featured Alex McFarland, a noted Christian apologist and author, speaking about the origins of life in the womb. The event was considered controversial by many students and faculty.
“They are saying I was being unprofessional, but all I’ve done is to be a vocal pro-life student, standing up to bullies,” said Clark in a statement last week, as quoted by Students for Life of America.
The complaint alleges that from the 2018 event until his 2020 expulsion, Clark was frequently harassed by professors who allegedly verbally assaulted him. The complaint also alleges that he was arbitrarily given a failing grade in internal medicine even though he claims to have earned a passing score.
The complaint also alleged that Clark was the victim of viewpoint discrimination, as seen by the disparate treatment he received compared to other politically active students.

This is the second time I’ve heard of getting conservative students on “professionalism”. They have no shame, they’ll use any trick.
