BREAKING: Biola apologizes, endorses use of graphic abortion images

imageBiola president Dr. Barry Corey, pictured right, has issued a public letter of apology for retaliatory actions staff members of his Christian university took against pro-life student Diana Jimenez in June for showing graphic images of abortion on campus:

For actions on our part that were perceived to be heavy-handed and retaliatory, I have apologized to her and stand by this apology publicly. I acknowledge and regret our errors, and steps have been taken to correct them….

In so many ways, Diana is the kind of student with the deep Christian convictions I hoped to see when I came to Biola six years ago. In her convictions about saving the unborn, she represents what Biola is about—the desire to speak up against injustices that break the heart of God. Like Diana, Biola is and has been passionately pro-life.

A campus security guard was caught on video threatening to have Jimenez arrested, and the director of the nursing program, Dr. Susan Elliott, ordered her staff not to write letters of recommendation on Jimenez’s behalf.

Handing out 12-wk preborn “squish alien” baby models at fair “weird, extreme, unsettling”

[Rob] Port said this was the wrong way of spreading the anti-abortion message. He wrote a blog, “Dear Pro-Lifers: Can You Stop Being a Bunch of Weirdos?” on July 21: “Whatever group is out there trying to promote the pro-life message by handing out squish alien babies, stop. You’re doing more harm than good.” Dina […]

NARAL: It’s a “threat” to give free stuff to pregnant moms in need

[I]f the case were about transparency, then the City Council — and state legislators — should get busy passing legislation requiring abortion clinics to post how many abortions they have provided, how many women have been seriously injured or died in a clinic and whether the clinic has ever lost its license. That would be […]

Graphic abortion vid set for jumbo-tron viewing in Cincinnati

Created Equal’s Executive Director Mark Harrington says his organization has pioneered the use of “cutting edge video technology to represent the victims of abortion” to audiences across the country. “Now it’s time to bring it to cities like Cincinnati,” Harrington said. “Not until now has abortion been represented in such a profound way.” Created Equal […]

OSU student found guilty of destroying pro-life display

946879_526377030754856_868729005_n In April, Hans posted video of a woman at Ohio State University knocking down signs that had been erected by Created Equal showing the atrocity of abortion.

The vandal was identified as OSU student Calysta Santacroce, and Created Equal filed charges.

On May 7 criminal charges were lowered to “disorderly conduct” on the condition that Santacroce plead guilty and pay restitution of $126 to Created Equal, which she paid in cash that day.

When the judge asked Santacroce to explain herself, she said it had been a bad day, and she  did something she knows she shouldn’t have. “He [CE staff member] provoked me,” Santacroce claimed.

When the judge asked how so, Santacroce responded, “He asked me, ‘What do you think of my signs?’”

Santacroce was fined $50, in addition to the restitution.

Here again is that video. Warning: Profanity

Christian university retaliates against pro-life student for showing graphic reality of abortion

Four months ago Diana Jimenez had an epiphany.

“I was pro-life but had no idea what an abortion looked like,” Diana told me today by phone. “Then I actually saw a video of an abortion, and my heart broke in pieces.”

A senior nursing student at Biola, a Christian university in La Mirada, California, Diana (pictured right) promptly launched a pro-life group and invited Gregg Cunningham, executive director of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, to speak. After a great deal of energy was expended to publicize, only four students showed up.

Diana was compelled to attempt greater outreach, and the clock was ticking, with graduation just around the corner.

She loves being pregnant right now and I f–king hate it….

I’m not a fan of pregnancy right now with my thighs touching and my boobs changing but I know it will be worth it and hopefully I get back to that really quickly.
