When pro-life advocates take the pro-life message to college and university campuses, they never know what kind of response they’ll get. They see it all — counter protests, people changing their minds on abortion, and even violence.

proabortion19Then, sometimes, they get some of the most outrageous responses from abortion activists who go out of their way to justify their view that abortion should be available on demand, for any reason and any time during pregnancy.

But the pro-life advocates with Created Equal saw that pro-abortion argument taken to the next level when they visited Ohio State University. There, one abortion activist said she saw no problem with infanticide, saying there may be medical cases that require killing a newborn baby after birth.

“You’re asking me whether I blanketly believe it’s wrong to kill a newborn baby after that baby’s been taken from it’s mother’s womb,” a protester to Created Equal’s outreach at Ohio State University asks pro-lifers in a newly-released video clip. She continues, “And I’m saying to you I have no idea what medical necessities or medical issues would arise that would necessitate that.”

Mark Harrington, director of the pro-life group, told LifeNews in response: “Why would this defender of abortion refuse to condemn killing babies after birth? Because she knows there is no morally relevant difference between a child immediately before and after birth. Thus, if it were acceptable to kill her inside the womb, it would also be permissible afterward.”

“Tragically, this protester is not alone. We’re encountering this at a growing rate,” Harrington added. “Once again we see that the worldview accepting the barbarity of abortion has ramifications for born humans, too. The old Russian proverb says, “If there is no God, everything is permitted.” If fewer and fewer Americans ground their morality in God, in what will they root it? Their personal arbitrary sense of right and wrong. We have our work cut out for us.”
