Springtime is when the crazies come out, silencing anyone with different ideas by stealing things, obscuring messages, and yelling at people. We’ve had hordes of vandals and crass protesters already this spring, but today’s installment comes courtesy of chalk vandals at the University of Nebraska Omaha and high-octane protesters at the University of Toledo.
UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA OMAHA
The Mavericks for Life at UNO are an awesome, active group who are always doing events on campus. Historically, they’ve had their share of harassment and vandalism. But nothing can stop these brave members of the #ProLifeGen!
Their SFLA Regional Coordinator, Stephanie Lugo, reported:
“We did the chalking on the evening of April 17th, around 6:00pm. I was there too, and everything looked great. There wasn’t any negative feedback from the people who were walking through the area at that time.
These are some of the “before” photos. Lilly has pictures of the vandalism, but some of the messages were “abortion is good” and our “empowered women empower others to choose life” which was changed to “empowered women empower others to choose whatever is best”.
The “After” Photos:
UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO
Ohio Regional Coordinator Klara McKee has been a real trooper this spring. Just recently, she and her group at Kent State University underwent a barrage of social media attacks following a campus altercation involving some spray paint.
This time, Klara took our spring tour display, Planned Parenthood Truth, to the University of Toledo. Pro-abortion students at UT were not fond and protested the pro-life students the entire time they were there. This is dedication we don’t often see! Klara noted:
“Really the main thing was the pro-choice group surrounding the display for the ENTIRE time. When I engaged in dialogue, they were respectful and nice. But their ideas were ridiculous. I was starting to get annoyed by the sign, “Keep your rosaries off our ovaries.” I had to repeatedly go over and try to have a dialogue because none of their group had been interested in even looking at our material. They stood in front of our crosses and out on the other side of the event.”
