Trend continues: If it offends you, just destroy it
An angry pro-abortion student at Miami University-Hamilton was videotaped kicking over symbolic crosses put up the day before by the pro-life group on campus. Video footage at the “cemetery of the innocents” shows a male student kicking over and then throwing several of the small white crosses – while a female student with him simply watches. Matt Lamb of Students for Life of America says such incidents are on the rise.
“It’s no longer Let me go debate them or I’ll just ignore them – it’s like I need to actively do whatever I can to make sure no one hears their message, sees their message or anything similar,” explains the SFLA director of communications.
SFLA describes a “cemetery of the innocents” as a display of crosses or tombstones representing lives lost to abortion. According to Campus Reform, several other pro-life displays on university campuses have been vandalized.
Lamb says his organization is grateful that most colleges and universities readily have police and campus security investigate such vandalism. “Thankfully a lot of times the schools are very willing to work with us and they investigate the matter,” he tells OneNewsNow. “[In this case], we’ve turned over videos and photos and names – whatever we have.”
Just weeks earlier, Miami University-Hamilton settled a lawsuit by agreeing to lift its mandatory “trigger warnings” for a pro-life display.
