Pro-abortion feminists vandalized a college pro-life display in Wisconsin last week and then received praise from the university’s student Democrats club, Hypeline reports.

Last week, the pro-life club at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin set up a display of pink and white flags as a memorial for unborn babies who have died in abortions, according to the report. The display also had signs explaining how approximately 1.2 million unborn babies are aborted every year and how each flag represented 1,000 of those babies’ lives. The signs also asked people to be “respectful” of the families and individuals affected by abortion.

According to the report, pro-abortion feminist students defaced the display by placing their own messages over the pro-life signs. Some read “My body, my freedom” and “We want doctors, not missionaries.”

Later, the Marquette College Democrats applauded the students who defaced the display. In a Facebook post, the club wrote: “Keep fighting the good fight, marquette feminists. We love & support you”

The college Democrats said they did not vandalize the memorial, but they “support the students who stood up for all women in their right to feel safe and included on campus.”

Another student named Clare McCullough appears to be taking responsibility for the vandalism.

“Abortion isn’t a good thing. But this is our response to the unborn memorial,” she wrote on Facebook next to a photo of the defaced pro-life display. “We want doctors; not missionaries and our bodies are not your moral battleground. We at least have the right to choose what we do with our lives …”

Pro-life displays often are vandalized, both on college campuses and in communities. In April, pro-abortion students vandalized a similar display at Southern Methodist University in Texas. Almost 3,000 crosses memorializing unborn victims of abortion were kicked down. In another case, a pro-life club at the University of California Davis was targeted in March when its members set up a poll table asking about late-term abortions. One abortion activist allegedly harassed the pro-life students and threw their materials on the ground.

In the past year, LifeNews also reported several cases where pro-life billboards were vandalized, some multiple times.
