Why it's helpful for the good guys to have lawyers

Vanderbilt University, in blatant violation of pertinent federal laws governing entities that receive federal money, was requiring prospective nursing students to sign an "acknowledgment" that they would participate in abortions. The ADF got on it. They supposedly couldn't sue on behalf of an applicant directly, because a federal judge has said that federal conscience protection grants no private cause of action and that violations must be dealt with directly by the federal government. But ADF did write to the HHS asking that they investigate the violation. Vanderbilt has backed off and sent out an e-mail removing the requirement for the "acknowledgment." Perhaps not surprisingly, they claim that it wasn't what it appeared to be. If you believe that, I have a Parthenon in Nashville's Centennial Park to sell you.

Some days, the knight wins.

no comments, but that doesn't mean people don't like good news. I do.

Yeah, exactly. It made me chuckle a bit, even though there's something so...sleazy about Vanderbilt's trying it and then pretending they didn't.

Posting "yay!" seems so... lacking.

It's okay, but FYI, here's the link to Vanderbilt's former application:


It includes the "women's health acknowledgement," just so everybody can see what liars they are to claim now that they were never trying to force students to participate in abortions.
