Pro-abortion students at the University of Missouri vandalized anti-abortion messages at the school on Thursday, and then immediately took to Twitter to brag about their feat.

Mizzou Students for Life(SFL)  wrote over two dozen chalk messages promoting an anti-abortion message on Wednesday night, scrawling statements such as “Abortion hurts women” and “Abortion stops a beating heart.” The messages were intended to coincide with National Pro-Life Chalk Day, an event that encourages anti-abortion activists to leave chalk messages for people to see on Thursday.

Many of their messages didn’t make it to Thursday morning, however, thanks to the efforts of some hostile students, who used water and a broom to erase the messages just hours after they were put down.

The students even erased messages that offered help and emotional support, such as one giving the number to a local pregnancy center.

“If they truly cared about women and true choice, they would allow as many people as possible to see that number and hopefully call it to receive guidance on their options– which means more than just an abortion referral from Planned Parenthood,” wrote Mizzou SFL President Kelsey Bolte.

One student even said on Twitter that she was considering sending a message to the university’s Organization Resource Group, presumably in the hopes of having the group sanctioned for leaving sidewalk chalk.

Destroying and defacing anti-abortion messages at college campuses is something of a recurring trend around the country. Last year, a UC Santa Barbara professor openly stole and destroyed an anti-abortion sign, while at Dartmouh College in 2012, an anti-abortion display was run over by a car.
