University Affiliation: 
Student

By supporting this event, does the University officially promote abortion and thereby express a negative judgement on its students (including those of Islamic and Christian backgrounds) who may consider it to be a wrong? Is it possible that this will affect campus climate in a negative way, leading to the alienation of religious or ethical minorities?
