Students Hold ‘Choice Week’ Promoting Abortion at Georgetown University

A group of Georgetown University students plans to attend Planned Parenthood’s rally at the U.S. Supreme Court as the Hobby Lobby case over the HHS contraceptive mandate is heard, according to the Georgetown Voice.

The rally is just one activity of the seventh annual Choice Week by H*yas for Choice. The theme this year is “My Choice, My Voice.” Other events include “Queer Voices, Queer Choices,” which reportedly includes a panel consisting of representatives from NARAL, the Religious Coalition for Choice, and the Great American Condom Campaign.

While H*yas for Choice is not officially recognized by the Jesuit university, it is partnering with recognized student organizations on campus such as GUPride to host events on campus.

“HFC co-sponsoring with religious organizations is a way for many of our members to reconcile their identity as a religious individual and as pro-choice,” Abby Grace, Vice-President of H*yas for Choice reportedly said. “We really want Choice Week to be an event for the Georgetown community at large. We recognize that there are many Catholic, pro-choice students at Georgetown, and we think that this event is a great way to bridge the divide between Georgetown as a religious institution and healthy dissent.”

On Monday night the group hosted Catholics for Choice on campus, according to its Facebook page.

H*yas for Choice is also scheduled to hold an event on Wednesday night to discuss new laws against abortion throughout the country.

The following evening, H*yas for Choice will host pro-abortion rights activist Renee Bracey Sherman, who is described as an abortion access specialist, according to RH Reality Check, to discuss how to talk about abortion.
