Self-proclaimed Feminist Students Deface Pro-Life Memorial at Marquette
College Democrats of Marquette condone act, Conservative students respondcontinue at Marquette Warrior
Milwaukee, WI - Self-proclaimed feminist students sabotaged a display on Marquette University’s campus memorializing the millions of babies killed through abortion. The culprits placed several signs covering the information about the memorial. The signs stated things such as: “My Body, My Freedom”, “Stop the hypocrisy, care for women’s reproductive rights”, “68,000 women die from unsafe abortions every year”, and other variations of pro-choice arguments. Coat hangers were also scattered around the memorial.
The Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Marquette responded with the following statement: Young Americans for Freedom at Marquette University is extremely saddened that the Students for Life memorial was defaced by certain students intolerant of an opinion that they do not agree with. It is extremely hypocritical to claim that you are exercising your free speech rights through defacement while simultaneously trying to shut down the free speech of a student organization.
We know what the administration at Marquette has bred in the students, an anti-speech anti-dialogue culture that seeks violence against those with whom the disagree. Prof. McAdams' treatment is a prime example.
