Dr. Anne Hendershott, professor of Sociology and director of the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life, gives her thoughts on an ongoing celebrity embryo lawsuit:
No longer content to deny due process to university students facing often unsubstantiated or false accusations of sexual harassment and assault, activists now aim to destroy any hope for them to transfer to other colleges and universities. In Congress on December 8, Representative Jackie Speier (D., Calif.) introduced the Safe Transfer Act, which would require transcript notation for students who try to transfer after being found “responsible” for violations of Title IX policies on sexual harassment and assault. The bill would create a new “check the box” requirement specifically for the transcripts of the (mostly) male students who have become ensnared in Title IX’s ever-expanding net for campus “sex crimes.”
