A university professor said that she will dismiss students from her class if they argue against abortion or the Black Lives Matter movement. Iowa State University professor Chloe Clark released a syllabus for a 200-level English class instructing students that they cannot argue against abortion, Black Lives Matter, and a number of other leftwing causes. It includes a "GIANT WARNING" that contradicting certain viewpoints may result in dismissal from class.
"Any instances of othering … are grounds for dismissal from the classroom," the syllabus obtained by Young America's Foundation reads. "The same goes for any papers/projects: you cannot choose any topic that takes at its base that one side doesn't deserve the same basic human rights as you do (i.e.: no arguments against gay marriage, abortion, Black Lives Matter, etc.)"
