Students for Life tour busA pro-life student group is speaking out against the recent destruction of a pro-life display on a Kentucky college campus that falls under the umbrella of the Catholic Church.

Vandals at Ballarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky, destroyed the Catholic Students Associations' pro-life display as a statement by abortion activists.

After defacing campus property, the perpetrators openly bragged about their crime on social media.

Students for Life of America (SLA) President Kristan Hawkins expressed how discouraging it is to see such flagrantly hateful and intolerant behavior – especially on a religious campus.

"Seeing the social media reaction on that campus to this display and watching students kind of reacting in real time justifying the violence to this display was especially disheartening," Hawkins expressed.

She also maintained, however, that pro-life advocates are not diverted from their mission when their displays are vandalized, and went on to encourage them to rather see such criminal acts as an opportunity.

"When  these displays are vandalized – whatever campus it might be – it actually serves to boost these Students for Life groups, [and other] pro-life students on that campus, because they know this is why they have to speak out,” Hawkins impressed. “This is why they have to start this discussion."

Students for Life has been tracking vandalizations on college campuses and posting the results on a map on their website.
