Students for Life at Chemeketa Community College in Oregon chalked pro-life messages on campus on Friday, April 26th, but some time over the weekend people destroyed the chalkings. What were some of the controversial ideas that got the students all hot and bothered?
‘The heart starts beating at 22 days in the womb”, “Life is beautiful”, and “2,700 preborn children are aborted every day.”
Marcos Sanchez, the president of the Students for Life group noted, “Our main goal for chalking was to spark conversation and that is exactly what we accomplished. Even though our messages were erased and defaced I know that many students began talking and having conversations with one another. I am hoping that this experience will not discourage members, but rather motivate them to become a louder and stronger force to be reckoned with.”
“The Pro-Life Generation has been at Chemeketa for a while, but now everyone knows it, even the college’s president. Next week we’re hosting the Planned Parenthood tour display and it could not come at a more perfect time. I am excited to have thought-provoking and effective conversation with my peers (who seem to be so misinformed) about Planned Parenthood and the Pro-Life movement.”
In a recent press release, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, called out the violence on college campuses.
“For a picture worth a thousand words illustrating the need for President Trump’s executive order protecting student free speech, look no further,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “With the pro-abortion fringe turning to violence, students speaking up for mothers and their pre-born infants face real opposition to the simple truth that we want to love them both. But we won’t be silenced. I’m proud of the commitment of our student leaders who take time away from their studies and all the activities available to them on high school, college and university campuses to speak for the least of these.”
