Every year on National Pro-Life Chalk Day, hundreds of students all across the country take to their campuses to write life-affirming messages on the sidewalks. And every year, we inevitably hear reports of pro-abortion vandalism by people who just can’t handle an opposing view. It is all part of a disturbing trend at colleges and universities where students and professors who support abortion resort to empty rhetoric, intimidation and misinformation, rather than engage with pro-lifers and their arguments.
The good news is that the majority of students today see that the abortion movement has no answers. The personal attacks, the evasions and the cheap one-liners highlight the absurdity of the pro-abortion arguments and pro-lifers are winning on campuses across America. As pro-abortion vandalism becomes more prevalent, courageous pro-life students only become more inspired to stand up and defend the pre-born and their mothers.
The following report from this year’s National Pro-Life Chalk Day comes from Teresa Pincus, President of Students for Life at North Carolina State University:
This is the first year my school, NC State University, participated in National Pro-life Chalk Day. We chalked all over campus the night before, offering messages of truth, love, and healing. Upon inspecting our messages later in the day, we found that multiple people wrote ridiculous responses to our messages. Below are our rebuttals.
“Abort Women” à Originally, it was “Abortion hurts women” but someone must have found it amusing to adjust it to “abort women.” Sexist much? Not only does abortion hurt women, some women seek out abortions specifically BECAUSE they are carrying little women. Funny? I think not.
Women need healing after illegal abortions à Women need healing even after LEGAL abortions. If abortion is so safe, why are there abortionists like Gosnell (PA), Karpen (TX), and Carhart (MD) who have butchered countless women and children? The abortion industry is the most unregulated industry in America. When states try to pass laws that will increase the standard of care, the abortion crowd fights against them tooth and nail not because they care about women, but because it means that abortion industry loses money.
Scribbling out Project Rachel website à We wrote a link that directed our peers to Project Rachel, a retreat for those seeking healing from abortion. God forbid that someone regrets her abortion and wishes to seek healing. It destroys the mantra that “abortion is good for women.” They would rather force their ideologies down people’s throat than let women receive healing.
Holocaust was a horrible tragedy that killed 6 million Jews à Yes, the Holocaust was tragic and should have never happened. Today in the name of “choice,” abortion has eliminated more than 9 times the amount of the Jewish people.
A person is a person, no matter their sexual orientation à What? We are talking about the dismemberment, poisoning, and suffocation of the most vulnerable human beings. Let’s talk about abortion.
And of course, “let women make their own decisions about their bodies.” Classic pro-abortion line. They can deny it all they want, but science informs us that from the moment of conception, there is a unique, individual human being. And this tiny human being deserves to have the right to life. Even if (for the sake of argument) we didn’t know exactly when life begins, we HAVE to give the benefit of the doubt towards life beginning at conception. Otherwise, our definition of when life begins would depend on the current technology.
But seriously, we don’t have time for this mess. We have lives to save. Face the facts, drop the rhetoric, and come talk to us when you have better arguments.
Students for Life at North Carolina State University is not alone in having their pro-life events vandalized. There have been many other instances of “pro-choice” students taking extreme measures to show their support for abortion: a clothesline representing lives lost to abortion was ripped down at Northern Kentucky University. University of Buffalo Students for Life endured 3 acts of vandalism to their pro-life display. At Western Kentucky University, condoms were put on a Cemetery of the Innocents display.
