After news surfaced of the rejection of a pro-life student group on another Canadian college campus, University of Alberta students were protesting an upcoming pro-life display, featuring images of abortion victims, to be displayed in their quad. The main point of contention seemed to be that some believed the display could be upsetting to women who have had abortions or miscarriages.
One student even went so far as to say that she had an abortion and abortion is horrible, so women shouldn’t be further traumatized by having to actually look at it.
With all the hubbub about how the display might “infringe on students’ rights,” a gay pride parade was set to happen on campus simultaneously, and some students planned to block the pro-life display so the gay pride parade participants wouldn’t have to view something that might somehow dampen their festivities.
Yes, you read that correctly: While marching around celebrating their rights, the gay pride students planned to block the free speech of others with whom they disagree (click below for video):
By the way – the Latin phrase on the University of Alberta’s seal, pictured above, means “Whatsoever things are true.”
