Such a position does not mean that these students have a right to require meat-eaters to pay additional fees for the cardiovascular nightmares that undoubtedly await their morally questionable lifestyle choices.

Of course I am being sarcastic, but the similarity between the fictionalized “radical vegans” I speak about and those who want to restrict women’s access to medical procedures is not a far stretch.
