Austin Clark was expelled in June of 2020 during his fourth year of Medical School, only a few months before he would have graduated. He has recently filed a lawsuit against 14 people involved with the University of Louisville School of Medicine, including the current president, Neeli Bendapudi.
The father of two claims that he was discriminated against by the school because of his pro-life convictions, and specifically, his involvement with pro-life groups on campus.
According to Live Action, the University of Louisville School of Medicine has significant ties to the abortion industry, including one of the professors owning the only remaining abortion clinic in Kentucky.
There have also been allegations of an improper relationship between the university and EMW Women's Surgical Center, particularly through the school's "Ryan Residency," which trains medical students to commit abortions. Additionally, all of Kentucky's abortions are reportedly committed by professors at the university.
Clark told Students for Life that his conflict with the school began in 2020 after he, along with his chapter of the Medical Students for Life group, hosted an event with a pro-life speaker in 2018. Clark said that professors harassed him repeatedly over the next two years:
"They are saying I was being unprofessional, but all I've done is to be a vocal pro-life student, standing up to bullies."
Clark was required by the school to sign a "professionalism contract" that other students were not given to sign.
He says that from that point until his 2020 dismissal from the medical school, professors retaliated against him for his views, calling him "stupid" and questioning if his "brain was working" among the derogatory comments made.
Clark hopes the lawsuit will result in the restoration of his medical school record so that he can continue working towards his goal of becoming a pro-life doctor.
