Yesterday afternoon pro-abortion activists at DePaul University apparently trashed a pro-life display meant to memorialize babies killed in abortions.
A DePaul blog reports:

The DePaul University Young Americans for Freedom chapter hosted a Flags for Life Project to mark the 40th anniversary of the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. YAF club members set up 500 flags at 7:00AM Tuesday morning on the DePaul campus (half blue, half pink) to symbolize just some of the lives lost every day due to the injustice of abortion in our nation.

At about 5:00PM Tuesday evening the DePaul YAF chairman, Kristopher Del Campo, along with other executive board members, went to remove the flag display. But what they found was startling; the flags had been removed and stuffed into trash bins inside and outside the entrance to the DePaul library.

Del Campo contacted the DePaul Public Safety, who are reviewing videotape evidence that 3-4 females removed the flags around 4:30PM. The incident is still under investigation.

“It is a sad thing to see that liberal minded students aren’t more tolerant, and don’t respect the views of those who respect the lives of the unborn”, stated Del Campo. “Especially on a campus of one of the nation’s largest Roman Catholic institutions, such as DePaul University.”

When will the intolerance end? Conservative students are being silenced every day on campuses around the country, and we must help them continue to fight, even in the most hostile environment in America: the college campus.
