I think that colleges and universities should offer their support to all life choices, and Bitch agrees:
Although I don't know the details of the bill, as presented in this article it sounds to me like a long-overdue--and feminist--solution. It's incredibly difficult for student parents at college: often there's no campus daycare, and if there is it has long waiting lines; often daycares don't offer drop-in services or aren't open for evening classes; often even women's centers on campus don't have resources or support aimed specifically at student parents.
A really good friend of mine is a single mom who is struggling hard to get through college, and continually running into problems with daycare, school schedules, inadequate financial aid, housing, etc. She's called me in frustrated tears talking about dropping out, and I encourage her to hang in, but it's ridiculous: colleges and universities do a terrible job of supporting student parents.
I also agree with Bitch that this is an issue that progressives should seize upon--a great bridge we can build over to pro-lifers:
This is one of the issues on which I often find myself arguing with my peers: the educated, liberal, ambitious social classes. We have a tendency to argue that teen pregnancy is bad, that it hampers girl's economic, educational, and social development. We focus on birth control and delaying pregnancy. But the thing is, it isn't having a child that screws girls over: it's the stigma against having kids, the total lack of social support, the "you made your bed, now lie in it" attitude that we have as a society.
Just proof again that while their are bitter disagreements, there are issues where pro-life and pro-choice can and should come together.
