Yes, well according to the letter the Student Union sent, what actually happens now is :
6. CUSA further affirms that actions such as any campaign, distribution, solicitation, lobbying, effort, display, event etc. that seeks to limit or remove a woman’s right to choose her options in the case of pregnancy will not be supported. As such, no CUSA resources, space, recognition or funding will be allocated for the purpose of promoting these actions.”
So, the group can do all they could before, except they won't get money from the Student union, and they aren't permitted to use the Student Union Building, or any other space given to the Student Union.
Everyone raise your hand if you've actually taken part in Judiciary or Constitutional committees at a university...I have. Anyone else?

A few points.
You can repeat it until the cows come home, their rights aren't being denied. You don't have the right to stand on my lawn and chant or pass out pamphlets to passers by. CUSA is like a land owner, and they have a Constitution. If groups can't respect that, then they shouldn't complain.
Where is it written, in any of the correspondence between CUSA and Campus Life that Campus Life cannot have an information session anywhere on campus?
Last, let's test your model here of how rights work. How do you feel about immigrants who come here, and try to have our laws changed, rather than conform to them? Are you supportive of any and all changes, or do you think they should operate within the bounds dictated by our existing Constitutional law?
