Conservative students at DePaul University marked the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade with a flag display by the campus library.
But when the conservatives came back at 5 PM to take down the display they found that radical activists had destroyed it and dumped it in trash cans. Three women were seen on camera trashing the display.
DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the US.
Todd Starnes at FOX News reported:
As many as 20 vandals destroyed an elaborate pro-life display at DePaul University, the nation’s largest Catholic university.
The Young Americans for Freedom chapter received permission to erect 500 blue and pink flags to mark the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. The flags represented the number of unborn children aborted every day.
YAF spokesperson Kate Edwards told Fox News that surveillance video shows as many as 20 people ripping up the flags and stuffing them into trash cans.
“They had been thrown and stuffed into various trash cans outside the library,” Edwards said. “If this happens on the largest Catholic university campus in our nation – it can happen anywhere.”
University spokesperson Cindy Lawson told Fox News they are investigating the vandalism and are attempting to find out who is responsible. She could not confirm the exact number of flags that were destroyed.
“DePaul has a very clear free speech policy,” Lawson said. “And although we don’t expect all of our students to be of the same mind on issues, we do stress the importance of respecting others’ right to freely express their opinions on issues.”
