Professor surprised his class when he did this

May 20, 2015

What's a Professor to Do?

If you haven’t seen this image yet, you may be wondering why this professor is teaching with a child in his arms. Well, here’s the backstory:

“So one of the students came with her kid, because she didn’t have a babysitter. the kid starts to cry in the middle of the class, so his mom, all embarrassed gets up to leave, and the professor took the kid from her, calmed him and continued teaching.”

According to comments below the post, this man is Dr. Sydney Engelberg of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.

What an awesome professor! He didn’t question or chastise this mom for her effort to both parent and pursue her education. Instead, he embraced her efforts– and her child! What would our college campuses look like if our universities encouraged this welcoming attitude towards pregnant and parenting students?

US House Passes
Pain Capable Bill

Today the House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Please see below for a statement from Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America.

“We are so proud that the House has passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and moved to ban abortions after 20 weeks gestation, where the preborn baby has been scientifically proven to feel pain. There is no excuse for the now pro-life Senate not to bring the bill to the floor for a vote immediately. U.S. Senators must go ‘on the record’ as voting for or against the horrific procedure of abortion at this stage in a woman’s pregnancy, where the preborn baby will feel every effort to end his or her life. It is inexcusable that the United States is one of seven nations that allows abortions after five months.”
