Radical leftist activists crashed a pro-life demonstration at the University of Georgia and erected a wall of censorship around an anti-abortion display in order to shield the campus from the reality of abortion.
Justice for All, a pro-life group, erected an anti-abortion display at the University of Georgia on Monday. The public display contained graphic images of aborted fetuses.
To prevent members of the campus community from actually seeing the images, students from two pro-choice groups — the Women’s Studies Student Organization and Sexual Health Advocacy Group — stood around the display holding up sheets. The sheets walled off the display and kept the images out of the gazes of people walking by, according to Blake Seitz, a UGA student and contributor to The College Fix.
The pro-choice advocates also carried signs bearing such messages as “My body, my choice,” and “Put your politics where your pussy is! (If you don’t have one, shut up),” according to The College Fix.
Danielle Duncan, one of the pro-choice activists, said the pro-life display constituted “hate speech,” because it could trigger negative emotions to people who saw it.
Rebecca Stapleford, president of UGA Students for Life, said her group was being censored by the pro-abortion activists.
“This shows a persistent pattern of pro-life censorship on campus,” she said.
As a public university, UGA is required to guarantee and protect the rights of all students to exercise free speech in accordance with the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
UGA President Jere Moorehead did not respond to a request for comment as to whether he felt the pro-life students’ rights were violated.
A literal wall of censorship is certainly visually striking, but it is just one among countless examples of pro-abortion students assailing the rights of conservatives. (RELATED: U. of Alabama censors pro-life students for ‘offensive’ poster)
