Pro-abortion activists on college campuses often vandalize pro-life displays on campus. The latest incident involved 3,000 crosses on display at Southern Methodist University.
"It was pouring rain the night [of the vandalism],” explains Camille McCarty, president of Mustangs for Life, a division of Students for Life. “So there wasn't much we could do then. But we sent out an emergency text to anyone that we could reach asking for help at 6:00 a.m. the next morning. And so at six in the morning, 30 people showed up to put all of the crosses back up."
She says two years ago, facility employees pulled up the crosses even though the group had gotten permission for the display. And last year, vandals rolled huge snowballs through the display.
"But we're definitely not discouraged by the vandalism because we've also seen a lot of good things come out of it,” she tells OneNewsNow. “We've seen a lot of people speaking out about pro-life arguments who normally don't speak out about it. And people are really thinking about what they believe on this issue and whether they're on the right side."
Students guarded the resurrected display while it was up, some staying until 2:30 a.m. Campus police also helped guard the display.
