A group of silent pro-lifers were mandated to leave a pro-abortion speech given by Planned Parenthood’s CEO, at their university.
Students for Life of America reported an incident at University of California, Los Angeles where pro-lifers were forced to leave a speech given my Planned Parenthood CEO, Dr. Leana Wen. The event was put on at the David Geffen School of Medicine entitled, “The Role of Advocacy in the Medical Profession”.
While many pro-life members had aspirations to attend the speech, including representatives from Silent No More (a group of those who regret their abortions), Catherine Contreras of Vox Vitae gave her account of what happened on January 31st, according to the SFLA blog:
“There were at least 9 security officers or security staff on hand. What struck the most was the stark contrast between Kristan’s [SFLA president] talk vs Wen’s talk. At Lies Feminists Tell, protesters had drums, were yelling, etc., and were never asked to leave. They remained outside banging their instruments the whole time. At Wen’s talk, these three women were silently protesting while she was speaking. When security (law or UCLA, undistinguished) saw they had posters, they were asked to move aside and told they were not allowed to go past a certain point and security threatened to call the police if they did not leave. The UCLA staffer did not even allow the women to go through the elevator to get to their car in the parking garage. They were forced to go through the parking garage entrance, which was unsafe.”
This shocking event was unfortunately not the first time something to this magnitude happened to members of Students for Life. In 2018 leaders of SFLA at Penn State were forbidden from attending a public campus speech given by then president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards.

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon
A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.
A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.
Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.
Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.
Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.
Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.
Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.
In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
