Sarah Weddington, one of the lawyers on the pro-abortion side of the Roe v. Wade case, will be speaking at one of the University of Southern Mississippi's University Forum events. So head on down to Hattiesburg and thank her for contributing to the death of ~40 million unborn children. And be thankful that you weren't one of them if you're under 31 years old.
And there's some more interesting information about the University Forum. Andrew Wiest, history professor and director of University Forum, says, "The goal of University Forum is to provoke thought and broaden our world view through presentations by experts on the leading issues of our time." Other speakers scheduled to speak at following events are: "Harvard Law professor Randall Kennedy on "The Race Line in American Life" on Feb. 17, former American Civil Liberties Union president Nadine Strossen speaking April 6 on civil liberties post 9-11, and Time magazine essayist Andrew Sullivan on April 13." So, we have a law professor who sits on the editorial boards of three Leftist magazines: The Nation, The American Prospect, and Dissent; the former head of an organization that feels that pedophiles are an oppressed minority; and a pro-gay marriage and pro-"gay rights" "conservative" that doesn't really like social conservatives. Apparently having liberal speakers only is what Prof. Wiest means by broadening "our world view through presentations by experts on the leading issues of our time." I don't mind him inviting them, but I do mind him not inviting more conservative or libertarian speakers as well.
