Boston University School of Law students were offered therapy to help cope with three significant Supreme Court rulings this week that did not go in the left's favor regarding affirmative action, religious freedom, and the Biden administration's student debt cancellation program.
While the school is not providing specialized services due to the court's decisions, students were reminded of existing "wellness resources" provided by the university.
On Friday afternoon, the BU Law Student Government Association sent a letter to law students criticizing the Supreme Court for its recent controversial decisions.
The letter, obtained by Fox News Digital, slammed the justices for ruling against affirmative action.
"[The assenting judges] went so far as to say that the race-based admission system uses race as a negative and operates it as a stereotype," the letter stated, according to Fox News Digital. "They may couch their opinion in legal jargon, but we all know what this opinion aims to do: advocate for a 'colorblind' admission process."
The letter quoted Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a dissenting vote and a supporter of affirmative action, who stated that "ignoring race will not equalize a society that is racially unequal."
Additionally, the SGA denounced the court's decision to rule in favor of a Christian wedding website designer who denied her services to same-sex couples because of her religious beliefs.
The SGA also took issue with the court's ruling to strike down Biden's proposed $400 billion student loan cancellation plan, deeming the measure unconstitutional.
"These three decisions form part of a lengthy sequence of this court's ruling which steadily erode the rights of marginalized communities and undermine the very diversity upon which our nation was built," the SGA claimed.
The SGA's letter reminded students of the health and wellness resources offered by the university.
"As a reminder, BU also offers a number of wellness resources that are willing and able to help students navigate these times," the letter stated.
According to the BU Behavioral Medicine website, law students have access to therapy sessions, including 24/7 on-call mental health emergency services, diagnosis, psychiatry for mental health concerns, and a number of other offerings.
Neither Boston University nor BU Law SGA replied to a request for comment, Fox News Digital reported.
