Five pro-life students from Carleton University were arrested while trying to set up a GAP display on their campus yesterday. You can watch the powerful video footage of their arrest below!
Kristan Hawkins reacted to the arrests with the following statement:
“Yesterday, the Canadian government showed once again that it does not respect freedom of speech, freedom of expression or the sanctity of human life. Pro-life students should have the right to speak out on their own campus, particularly when that campus is publicly funded. The five pro-life students, arrested for trespassing at Carleton University, showed exemplary faith and courage in the face of discrimination. By silencing these students, Carleton University actually helped advance the pro-life message. The controversy surrounding this incident will help educate thousands of Canadian students. Pro-life students across the world stand in solidarity with the four pro-life student heroes at Carleton University.”
