I am the pro-life generationViolent acts against pro-life activists are a common occurrence and one activist suspects the root cause is a lack of caring for humanity.

Students for Life spokesperson Kristi Hamrick says a photo of the organization’s president was burned at a Washington state university where Kristan Hawkins was set to speak.

Hawkins is visiting college campuses on her “Lies Feminist Tell Tour,” which is creating predictable left-wing backlash, and a poster with her photo was set ablaze at Western Washington University, located in Bellingham.

A local television station, KIRO 7, reported a poster advertising the pro-life speaker was attached to a campus building and set on fire, slightly damaging the structure.

Authorities are investigating the fire as arson and the university said in a statement it “embraces freedom of speech and the importance of diverse viewpoints.”

Matt Lamb, communications director for Students for Life, tells OneNewsNow that Hawkins welcomes debate at the events, which are open to the public and include a Q&A session with attendees. 

Hamrick

Hamrick tells OneNewsNow abortion devalues human life and attacking pro-life people also represents the devaluing of someone who holds a different view.

“We can see the abortion lobby consistent in rejecting the humanity of people they don't like,” she says, “and at some point that has to come to an end.”

OneNewsNow reported last week that a young woman at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is facing an assault charge after attacking a pro-life activist who displayed graphic images of aborted babies.

Hamrick says the pro-life movement is winning, and the abortion lobby appears “terrified” that its lucrative money-making abortion industry is coming to an end as more people embrace life.
