EDWARDSVILLE, IL and FREDERICKSBURG, VA (4-2-18)–
In response to vandalism of a Cemetery of the Innocents display at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America said, “The vandalism is a disturbing display by those who oppose free speech unless you agree with them. This has become such an issue that Students for Life has even begun tracking vandalisms of pro-life displays on high school and college campuses. We support SIUE Students for Life and we demand the university investigate the matter and bring to justice those who committed this act against our students.”
David Cordaro, Upper Midwest Regional Coordinator for Students for Life, stated, “This hate and discrimination must stop, and as a movement, we will fight back, love women and their children, and save lives.”
