Diversity on campus...

Pro-life display vandalized at public university

A pro-life student group at Central Michigan University (CMU) had a their pro-life display torn down and stolen last Wednesday, Campus Reform has learned.
The CMU Students for Life (SFL) chapter, arranged a display which featured infant clothing hanging on a clothesline. One out of every four pieces of clothing featuring a red X to symbolize that a quarter of pregnancies end in abortion.

The group discovered that the display was missing on Wednesday, and filed a report with campus police.

Lt. Larry Klaus of the CMU police department confirmed to Campus Reform earlier today that they have launched an investigation into the incident.

Klaus said they are combing through surveillance footage and encouraged anyone with information regarding the stolen display to contact the CMU police.

Sarah Donetti, a member of SFL, told Campus Reform in an email last week she is disappointed that someone would attempt to censor their display.
"It is definitely disappointing because our group has been planning this event since last spring and members of our e-board have put a lot of effort into the event,” said Donetti.

“I can't say that I am surprised given the culture of the campus and I think that it's sad that people can't just disagree and the only way they can express themselves is by silencing our message,” Donetti added.
