In case you didn’t know… Students for Life of America went to Australia this past week! A group of SFLA staff and student leaders traveled down under to share the pro-life message and train Australian pro-life students in our proven outreach methods. Our pro-life travelers just deplaned… and are trying to get re-acclimated to their home time zones.
Among a lot of other activities, our brave students spent a bit of time getting yelled at by Australian feminists to go to hell. Middle fingers held high and armpit hair fluttering in the wind, the large group of pro-abortion women chose to voice their dissent with crass insults, refusing to dialogue with our missionaries.
The pro-abortion gals were actually part of an official student group at the University of Sydney called the Wom*n’s Collective. They enjoy spending their time abusing pro-lifers and organizing an annual protest of the Day of the Unborn Child. A local publication quoted a Wom*n’s Collective leader as saying, “LifeChoice with their 3D models of foetuses and their pictures of smiling babies continue to ignore this [the right to choose].”
Funnily enough, these rude pro-choice activists also told the reporter present that the pro-life students “had their cameras out, and were provoking them, waiting for them to lash out.” Ummm… no. But we’re sure they were warned by their organizers to behave since they got in trouble for acting out against pro-lifers as recently as last year.
Despite the ugliness from pro-abortion folks who refuse to have a conversation about the issue, our travelers had an amazing time in Australia. They did a ton of outreach, trained Australian pro-lifers on apologetics and techniques, and did plenty of sightseeing along the way. One of the student leaders posted:
You guys. Out of the total amount of conversations I have had at Macquarie University, University of Sydney, and the University of New South Wales, I wound up changing 1/3 of the people’s minds to be pro-life. ???? I am so excited to welcome all of my new Aussie friends to the pro-life movement!
