It’s always sad to see this sort of thing happen. It’s easy to get angry at those who are trying to suppress the pro-life message. But, we must remember that many people who vandalize pro-life displays have been involved in an abortion. The display brings back a lot of pain for them and so they lash out.
Should we stop doing pro-life displays?
The truth must get out there.
But, instead of looking on the perpetrators with anger, we should look on with pity that they are trying to cover up the immense dignity of the unborn child. They probably need healing…
Here’s the story:
The DePaul University Young Americans for Freedom chapter hosted a Flags for Life Project to mark the 40th anniversary of the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. YAF club members set up 500 flags at 7:00AM Tuesday morning on the DePaul campus (half blue, half pink) to symbolize just some of the lives lost every day due to the injustice of abortion in our nation.
At about 5:00PM Tuesday evening the DePaul YAF chairman, Kristopher Del Campo, along with other executive board members, went to remove the flag display. But what they found was startling; the flags had been removed and stuffed into trash bins inside and outside the entrance to the DePaul library.
Del Campo contacted the DePaul Public Safety, who are reviewing videotape evidence that 3-4 females removed the flags around 4:30PM. The incident is still under investigation.
“It is a sad thing to see that liberal minded students aren’t more tolerant, and don’t respect the views of those who respect the lives of the unborn”, stated Del Campo. “Especially on a campus of one of the nation’s largest Roman Catholic institutions, such as DePaul University.”
Despite being 40 years since Roe, the abortion culture is still alive and well. Let’s get back to work defending the dignity of all people and spreading the truth about abortion!
