Students from Northern Kentucky University found that their cemetery of innocents display had been vandalized by those seeking to silence the message of their peaceful demonstration. These students had been maintaining the display, which communicates the harsh degree in which abortion has pervaded the United States, since this past Sunday.
Vandals had approached the display and stolen seven signs that are essential to spreading the pro-life message associated with this display. These signs were not harsh or condemning, but conveyed impactful, non-inflammatory messages like, “Every child deserves the right to have his/her beautiful picture taken.”
Students reported that the moment members of the club realized this vandalism had occurred, they immediately contacted police and campus safety representatives. Unfortunately, those responsible for the theft have yet to be accounted for. This theft is yet another instance of a continuing trend in attacks against pro-life students and the outreach they are involved in across the nation. Just last week, students at Indiana State University were yelled at by an erratic abortion proponent who declared that he wanted their churches to burn.
This trend of widespread vandalism is all too prevalent at Northern Kentucky University. In 2012, the same pro-life group faced people violently cutting down their display. Perhaps more notable was vandalism that occurred in 2006 in which a professor led a group of six students to destroy a previous cemetery of innocents organized by these students.
