I would like to respond to the boycott article in the Thursday, April 3 Eastern Echo. As a long time university supervisor (hire date 1989), I have been responsible for placing the early childhood education student teachers throughout the area of southeastern Michigan, from Howell to Monroe and from Troy to Downriver and all parts in between. Each semester, I place from 18 to 48 students depending on the enrollment. This winter semester has proven to be the most difficult.

Dear Eastern Echo, I am extremely upset and offended by the article titled, “Students for Life Informs about Planned Parenthood,” as the title in and of itself seems contradictory.

When I came across the announcement in Eastern Michigan University’s web portal of the upcoming Genocide Awareness Project, I was expecting to read about an event that would draw our attention to acts of violence against groups based on religion, race and ethnicity. Instead, I was shocked to find the student organization behind the exhibit was comparing genocide to abortion.

Dear Editor, There are a few basic needs that humans have: food, shelter, water and a place to relieve themselves safely. For many people on Eastern Michigan University’s campus, finding such a place to use the restroom is not only difficult, but also impossible in many instances. For people with disabilities, parents with children, those with religious restrictions and some lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students and faculty, using the restroom on our campus can be much more challenging than it should be. These members of our community are important and deserve our consideration.
