These students must feel really safe at the University of Missouri. Or maybe they’re just really dumb.
Pro-choice activists actually documented their vandalism of pro-life messages just hours after they were scrawled by Mizzou Students for Life members for National Pro-Life Chalk Day, the pro-life group wrote at the national SFL website.
Why not? Look at the support in the responses.

The chalk statements included “A baby @ 9 weeks in the womb can suck their thumb!” and “Pregnant and scared? you have options,” with a phone number.
Though none of the statements had the group’s name on them, “one Twitter user said she was planning to write a letter to Mizzou’s Organization Resource Group about us concerning the messages,” the Mizzou group said.
The group included before and after pictures of their chalkings. I recognize some of the slogans from Feminists for Life, which is starting its own project to share early feminist writings on abortion (news flash: they were strongly pro-life) with “women’s historians teaching at campuses across the country.”
Good to know that certain student activists don’t trust their own faculties of persuasion to win over students.
