I am the pro-life generationAbortion supporters at a Texas university may have unintentionally helped the pro-life cause.

Young Conservatives of Texas at the University of North Texas put up a thousand flags on the campus in memory of victims of abortion and in support of Amy Coney Barrett's US Supreme Court nomination. Kelly Neidert, who heads the conservative group, tells OneNewsNow they suspected something was about to happen.

"There was an officer in our College Democrats club who encouraged it on social media," Neidert details. "She pretty much just tweeted capture the flags tonight at whatever time -- That sort of thing."

Campus police were notified in advance, but officers did not show up until after the fact.

"They just came through with about 30 people, and they started taking up all the flags, and then 350 got stolen," the conservative reports. "We don't know where they are. We had about 180 that were brought back from campus PD, but we're still missing 170."

Though only one student was given a citation, the thievery will not deter campus conservatives. Neidert says the situation actually helps them in a way; now that word about what happened has gotten out, more people are seeing how crazy abortion supporters can be.
