THE STUDENT RESPONSE TO TUITION HIKES
Dear Readers,UNC-Chapel Hill students are cur-rently facing an unprecedentedhike in tuition rates. Since state ap-propriations to the university weredrastically cut by $100 million, we’refacing a tough situation. How do weapproach filling in that gap withoutjeopardizing the quality, the pres-tige, or the diversity of our beloveduniversity?The problem is complicated, andthe solution will not be simple.Administrators, faculty, sta
 
, stu-dents and their families, and townresidents and o
cials all are goingto be a
 
ected, but all of their posi-tions are not always representedequally. In an e
 
ort to change this,some students decided to mobilizeto be advocates for those perspec-tives that are given less coverage.This issue explores the role of those students and their movementto oppose the tuition hikes that arethreatening the very nature of ouruniversity. As a student publicationthat receives funding from the uni-versity, we aim to give students an-other platform by which to have theirvoices heard.Happy reading!Chelsea PhippsEditor-in-Chief

In 2008,
8.5million
womenworldwide had
serious
medicalcomplicationsfrom
unsafe
abortions.Abortion rates are
higher
incountries wherethe procedure is
illegal
.
Abortion rates were lowestin Western Europe (~12/1000)and highest in Eastern Europe(~43/1000). The North Americanrate was
~19/1000.
 Almost all
unsafeabortions
 
were in
developingcountries
, where thenumber of family planning andcontraceptive programs havestopped increasing.About
47,000 women
across the globe died fromunsafe abortions in
2008
.There are higherabortion rates andregions with
morerestrictivelegislation
.
Nearly half
of allabortions worldwide are unsafe.Better access to birth control indeveloped countries resultedin
fewer unwantedpregnancies

T
here is an unfortunate dichotomy in ourculture that says one either has to be “pro-choice” or “pro-life”, as if those who agreewith keeping abortion legal are in e
 
ect “an-ti-life.” This is how many conservatives havecome to adopt the term “pro-abortion” whenreferring to anyone under the pro-choicebanner. But let it be stressed that no one, re-gardless of political or religious a
liation, ispro-abortion. There is no anti-life sentimentto be found, but rather the acknowledge-ment that a necessary evil must be providedin order to protect the mental and physicalwell-being of women across the globe. Re-produced here is a study from Gilda Sedgh,et al. that brings to light the dangers of out-lawing abortion, and shows how one can bepro-choice and still be pro
-life.

Why “pro-choice” doesn’t mean “anti-life.”
