Loyola Univ. of Chicago Lecturer Involved with Pro-Abortion Groups

Loyola University of Chicago hosted Judith Mayotte to speak on climate change refugees in a lecture titled “‘I Pick Up My Life And Take It With Me’: The Human Cost of Climate Change,” according to the Loyola Student Dispatch.

In her vast amount of work with refugees, Mayotte has been involved with several organizations which take part in abortion rights and pro-contraception advocacy. She serves on the Women’s Refugee Commission which advocates the reversal of the Mexico City Policy, which forbids federal money going to international organizations that provide abortions.

Mayotte also serves as a director emeritus of Refugees International, which advocates for access to “reproductive health care,” even calling it a “vital service” for refugees. Melanie Teff, senior advisor on human rights, advocates U.S. funding for family planning and abortion counseling on the Refugees International website.  Also on the website, board member Roya Hakakian decries the loss of abortion rights in Iran as part of a “war on women.”

She is currently serving on the host committee of an event called 25 Years of Leading Change which states, “Refugees need reproductive health care, too.”  Co-founder Susan Martin describes “ensuring access to reproductive health” including “birth control” as one of the “most important accomplishments” of the organization.

The lecture is sponsored by The Gannon Center for Women and Leadership.
