as, “Love Them Both”, “Human Rights Begin In The Womb”, and “True Feminists are Pro-Life”. Within hours of finishing the chalking messages, one of the Students for Life members witnessed four other students vandalizing the messages by pouring buckets of water over the messages. Specifically, they erased “True Feminists are Pro-Life” and “Heartbeat Begins at 21 Days”. The President of UM-Flint SFL, Maria Gatica, and the Pregnant on Campus Officer, Bailey Wright, have already planned to return to campus today to chalk new messages to replace the erased ones.]]>
Post by Emily Stumpo, Great Lakes Regional Coordinator. On Good Friday, members of Knights for Life at Marian University, located in downtown Indianapolis, were surprised to receive news that a faculty member in the Department of Psychology had emailed the entire list of faculty department chairs, staff and administrators to lambaste the pro-life event. The faculty member characterized the event as intending to mislead people making a pro-life event part of sexual assault awareness month. His position was that it was insensitive to survivors of sexual assault to exclusively talk about those survivors who became pregnant after their assault and that the group shouldn’t be holding the event, or at least should vastly change its content.
