Pro-abortion vandals at Catholic university scrawl over ‘Love them both’ pro-life message

Intolerant students at Georgetown University have proven once again that they won’t put up with different viewpoints being expressed in public.

Unknown vandals chalked over positive messages about women and children that were written on the ground Tuesday by Georgetown Right to Life for National Pro-Life Chalk Day, according to Students for Life of America. Its theme this year is “Love them both.”

They transformed “Choose Life” into “Choose Women” and “End Abortion” into “End Hate” and “End Racism,” which could be seen as confused given that abortion ends a far higher proportion of black lives than other lives.

You can see the altered messages at Townhallwhich also turned the positive “Choose Both” into the zero-sum “Choose Women.”

Students for Life also posted an 11-minute video shot by its University of Mary Washington chapter when it caught vandals in the act.

SFLA asks students to contact the organization immediately if their schools try to stop their chalking.
