Remember that time we posted about Kent State (their Rally for Choice, the kerfuffle with the painted rock, and the social media attacks)? Well, the social media aggression only got worse from there. Which is saying something since we left off with students saying they hoped members of the pro-life group would get raped.
Following the aforementioned incident, the university’s finest rained down on Kent State Students for Life, decimating their Facebook rating and shocking the pro-life students with the level of violence and vulgarity. The model of the Pro-Life Gen is to approach the conversation about abortion with obviously a certain level of boldness, but also a necessary undertone of compassion and the desire to find common ground.
This is the state of the pro-abortion movement, y’all. Scathing personal attacks, suggesting physical violence, sarcasm, vulgarity, and, nowhere in sight, any desire to have an educated discussion about the actual issue. The loveliest part is all of these people suggesting that the pro-life students get raped… when the leader of Kent State Students for Life is a rape survivor herself. Talk about callous, hurtful, and downright disgusting.
If you’re going to take a look at the social media attacks, pro tip: you may need a long walk, a shower, or a visit to your happy place afterward. It’s dark stuff.
On a serious note, people who lash out the most violently often do so because they are hurting. Another pro tip? The best pro-life advocates approach everything with love. It does no good, for anyone, to respond to verbal violence like this with more violence.
Over-the-top upset people are often hurting from abortion themselves. Anger is a state of grief, so they may not be ready to find healing, but suggesting healing resources is a good avenue of response. Rachel’s Vineyard is the most widespread post-abortive healing ministry.
