Anti-Abortion Display Vandalized at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point
Pointers for Life is a right-to-life group at UW-Stevens Point whose leader is funded by Wisconsin Right to Life.Checking he Wausau Daily Herald, we find that the news release is correct and accurate.
It what they deemed a moving visual demonstration of abortion in America, Pointers set up a Cemetery of Innocents display on campus consisting of 4,000 crosses to depict the number of human lives lost each day to abortion.
Overnight, the display was vandalized with crosses slashed and broken. As several Pointers’ members were repairing the display, a group of displeased students, led by student Senator Roderick King, began to yell at them and debate with them. They demanded to know who authorized the cross project.
Not satisfied with answers, King and his friends began pulling hundreds of crosses from the ground and tossing them away. Pointers then called Protective Services, knowing their project had been properly approved.
King claimed that Pointers for Life had “no right” to display the crosses and that it was “his duty as a paying student” to take it down. “The freedom of speech does not cover these signs and symbols,” he claimed. When Protective Services stepped in, King’s friends stopped but King continued until he was informed that unless he ceased, he would have to pay for the damages.
The Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs eventually restored order. Pointers for Life submitted a complaint to the student association, asking that King resign or be disciplined.
“We wonder what caused such intolerance and disrespect,” said Barbara Lyons, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. “It is hard to understand why a group of white crosses would trigger such an extreme response from King.”
Indeed, there is a video on YouTube (see below).
As always, the fascists on a contemporary college campus are on the left.
From the Huffington Post, apparently the UW-Stevens Point has punished the leftist vandal, although they invoke privacy laws and won’t reveal what the punishment is.
