A pro-life display on the campus of DePaul University was destroyed yesterday on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
A university spokesperson told The Cardinal Newman Society that they’re investigating the incident.
The pro-life display made up of 500 blue and pink flags was erected, according toThe Daily Caller, by the DePaul University chapter of Young Americans for Freedom with the approval of the university’s administration, according to the group. The flags symbolized the millions of boys and girls who had been lost to abortion since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion 40 years ago.
At about 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening, club members reportedly returned to remove the display, but it turned out that someone had removed the flags and stuffed them into several trash bins.
Kristopher Del Campo, who chairs the DePaul YAF chapter, contacted public safety officials, who are reportedly investigating the incident. “It is a sad thing to see that liberal minded students aren’t tolerable, and don’t respect the views of those who respect the lives of the unborn,” stated Del Campo in a release. “Especially on a campus of one of the nation’s largest Roman Catholic institutions, such as DePaul University.”
Kate Edwards of YAF told The Cardinal Newman Society that students are meeting with DePaul’s public safety officials this afternoon.
