There will be FREE swag including condoms, dental dams, and lube!! We will also have information about semi-permanent birth control (like IUDs) available FREE through UNC Campus Health and the NC Health Department.
Free condoms, dental dams, and lube? Sounds irresistible. How thoughtful of an academic department at UNC-Chapel Hill to sponsor a how-to-exterminate-your-unborn-child teach-in, as well as to make sure attendees leave well-lubricated.
Ghouls, the lot. It’s astonishing that an academic department would be allowed by the university to lend its imprimatur to what amounts to political advocacy.
