Two-Thirds of Harvard Law Students Walk Out on Pro-Life Scholar Before She Starts Speaking

Two-Thirds of Harvard Law Students Walk Out on Pro-Life Scholar Before She Starts Speaking

“Bachiochi spoke to the remaining audience members on how state courts have interpreted, or will interpret, their own constitutions to consider abortion bans or restrictions”

Activism is more important than hearing a differing point of view.

The College Fix reports:

Harvard Law students walk out on pro-life scholar before she started speaking

Approximately two-thirds of a Harvard Law School audience walked out on an event with a pro-life legal scholar on the future of America “After Dobbs,” according to the speaker.

“Dozens of Harvard Law students staged a walk out protest of a post-Dobbs panel I spoke on (with Prof. Stephen Sachs) today,” Erika Bachiochi, a fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, tweeted Sept. 29.

Harvard Law Professor Stephen Sachs joined Bachiochi (pictured), who is the author of “Embodied Equality: Debunking Equal Protection Arguments for Abortion Rights,” published in The Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy. 

Bachiochi spoke to the remaining audience members on how state courts have interpreted, or will interpret, their own constitutions to consider abortion bans or restrictions in the wake of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization June 2022 decision.

The landmark case overruled Roe v. Wade and held that “the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion” and “the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” according to SCOTUSblog.

“State courts…have authority to interpret their own constitutions…and so, it probably won’t surprise [you] to learn that some states have interpreted their liberty, privacy or equality clauses more expansively than [the Supreme Court],” Bachiochi stated in her prepared remarks, which she shared with The Fix.

Children can be sooo cute when they get angry.

Obviously the 1/3 that stayed were educated!

Time for a pop test.

At least the speech was not interrupted by rude students

One wonders why the 2/3 that walked out walked in to begin with.
As a statement, they weren’t telling anybody anything they didn’t already know.
Or maybe it was just the scam where the left bought up all the tickets to deprive the speaker of an audience of people who were genuinely interested.

I see several judges are now refusing to hire Yale Law grads as clerks. Now do Harvard.

    Yes, yes, yes and yes!!

    Pretentious clods were too afraid that they would have no rebuttal for the speaker.

    Ivy league universities are degrading into propaganda mills.

Maybe Judge Ho should consider extending his boycott to the Harvard Law school.

The left has decided that any dissent is illegitimate and should be illegal. They all want to be Putin.
