The video below is incredible. It reenforces the fact that the rule of law applies to all but pro-aborts.
On May 1 pro-abort University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point students, led by UWSP Student Senator Roderick King, vandalized in broad daylight and while being filmed a pre-approved display by the UWSP pro-life group Pointers for Life.
The display was rows of crosses called the Cemetery of the Innocents to commemorate babies killed by abortion….
Unbelievably, even after a university security guard showed up and told King to stop, he didn’t, and the wimpy campus cop just let him continue ripping up crosses. King’s illogical excuse was, “If there is a student on this campus that has had an abortion or that might be having an abortion, might be going through this, you want this up in front of them? Are you crazy?”
Illogical because if abortion is such a great right and a win-win (a win for moms offing unwanted babies and a win for unwanted babies being rescued from mad moms by death), what awful thing is there to “go through”? And if King actually believed that, was he not generating more abortion by trying to keep mothers ignorant of the ramifications?
Worse, despite a written complaint by PFL, the UWSP Student Government Association has not disciplined or removed King from SGA.
Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Bob Tomlinson apologized to PFL. Big whoop if there’s not going to be justice.
I called UWSP Chancellor of Student Affairs Linda Bunnell at 715-346-2123 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) just now and was told she is in a meeting (what for, I wonder). The person answering the phone said the university will issue a statement on its website under “news” later today.
I asked whether UWSP would discipline King and was told any decision would be guarded by privacy laws.
In a written statement, Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America, got it right: “[C]ampus pro-life groups are being singled out and excluded from the guaranteed freedom of speech and expression on college campuses.”
Here’s the video [UPDATE, 5/13, 9:30a: The embed is disabled at the moment. View video here.]
BTW, good work on PFL’s part for having a video camera with them. Pro-lifers should always have video cams with them when they engage in public dissent.
(See video on page 2.)
UPDATE, 2p: UWSP has issued a statement [HT: Kristan at SFL] calling King’s behavior “unacceptable” and may be doing something (“University procedures are being followed”) but won’t say what.
