Vanderbilt University: Pro Life Nursing Students Need Not Apply.

Vanderbilt University is the subject of a federal complaint filed today by officials with the Alliance Defense Fund over requiring nursing students to participate in abortions.

ADF, a pro-life legal group, filed the complaint with the Department of Health and Human Services saying it illegally forces the students to do the abortions despite receiving $300 million in federal tax dollars each year. Federal law prohibits grant recipients from forcing students or health care workers to participate in abortions contrary to their religious beliefs or moral convictions.

San Diego’s double standard on hate crimes: claims firefighters forced to participate in gay pride parade were “subjected to what can fairly be described as simple teasing, offhand comments, and extremely isolated incidents of partial nudity or lewd behavior.”

In an unusually speedy ruling, a state appeals court has unanimously upheld sexual harassment damages awarded by a jury to four San Diego firefighters forced to participate in the city’s 2007 ‘gay pride’ parade.

On Oct. 14 – less than a week after oral arguments in the case – the Fourth District Court of Appeal issued a 74-page decision upholding a jury’s award of monetary damages to the four firefighters.
