The First Place to cut UT's Budget....

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5

With budget cutting all the rage, especially for tuition hiking public universities, Empower Texans identifies a good place to start:
A University of Texas program is being lauded by liberals for helping undermine in court the Lone Star State’s safety-focused laws regarding abortion. Given the role the program has played in undermining commonsense laws, it is another example of a tax-funded institution working against the taxpayers.
The Texas Policy Evaluation Project (TxPEP) is a UT program to study the “impact” of legislation on “reproductive” issues. This entity has yet to find a limitation on abortion or abortion providers it didn’t hate, because it was designed to provide academic cover for tax-funded abortion services.
An agency of state government, UT’s pro-abortion project was funded by left-wing billionaire Warren Buffett. 
While TxPEP claims to be privately funded, it operates under the auspices of the University of Texas. This gives the pro-abortion advocates running it – one “researcher” formerly headed an abortion services program in Massachusetts – both an easy tax shelter for liberal donors (like Buffett) and legitimizes their findings. 
This is the lasting legacy of the University of Texas: bringing a panache of academic respectability to an industry so intent on killing unborn children they don’t want to be restrained even by basic safety standards.
