The anti-abortion group on campus was holding a huge demonstration outside today, disrupting classes with long tirades on microphones and putting violent imagery where everyone could see it. This is to promote Measure 1, which would ban abortions in North Dakota entirely if it is passed in November.
I am so livid and disturbed by the lengths these “activists” will go to get people to join their cause, and that they think equating abortion with racialized violence is ever, ever okay. It compared black women who get abortions to the KKK!
These out in the open images were impossible to miss if you were walking on this side of campus today – the signs “warning” for them were small and you could see the images by the time you got to the sign. There is a campus daycare right across the street so children could see them! Also this could be so triggering to people who are victims of racialized/ethnic violence and women who have had abortions and miscarriages.
I am very disappointed that the administration approved this and thinks that it is ok for an institution of learning to subject its students (and possibly their children) to violent imagery with complete disregard as to whether or not this impacts their personal safety and learning.
Aside from the typical censorship being advocated for by this ‘pro-choice’ activist, I wan’t to point out something that they said…
“The anti-abortion group on campus was holding a huge demonstration outside today, disrupting classes with long tirades on microphones and putting violent imagery where everyone could see it.”
I always thought we were supposed to believe that abortion is ‘healthcare’. Last time I checked, healthcare doesn’t involve violence.
