A pro-life display at the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus before it was vandalized on March 31.

Minutes after a pro-life student group set up a memorial to the unborn on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus, aggressive pro-abortion activists vandalized and stole parts of the display.

On March 31, Arctic Students for life set up a “Cemetery of the Innocents” memorial, which included 2,800 pink crosses in the snow – one for each baby that is aborted every day in America. Within 30 minutes, however, the crosses were attacked and some were stolen.

“Several protesters assembled and were present throughout the course of the event, and there were many encounters with unhappy pro-choice advocates,” one pro-life student advocate recalled. “Signs such as ‘abortion saves lives,’ ‘abortion is healthcare,’ and ‘shame on you for shaming women’ were hung/set up on or around the display.”

At one point campus police were involved as one protestor knocked down dozens of crosses and others stole some of them.

Pro-lifers did report having a few “respectful discussions,” but most people preferred to “launch insults, kick signs, or joke loudly about abortion as they walked past,” one participant recalled.

The pro-life students also had a table inside the campus center, where one club member endured a screaming fit from a protester.

“However many pro-life students were courageous enough to speak up inside (without the protesters watching), and offered encouragement and positive feedback,” a participant noted.

“We, as the Arctic Students for Life, see it as our duty to advocate for these preborn children who have no voice.”

Despite the aggressive tactics taken by pro-abortion activists, the pro-life memorial remained on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

According to the Arctic Students for Life website, the group exists to “equip students, as well as the community with tools and resources to educate those around them to continue building the pro-life generation and in turn abolish abortion in our community.”

“We, as the Arctic Students for Life, see it as our duty to advocate for these preborn children who have no voice,” the website adds. “It is our mission to protect and preserve these babies who are being barbarically murdered on an everyday basis. One of their basic human rights, the right to live, is being stripped from them before they can take their first breath outside the womb.”

The March 31 incident is not the first time the Fairbanks pro-life club has endured vandalism and harassment at the hands of pro-abortionists. A few years ago, vandals attacked a pro-life flag, and last October an Arctic Students for Life meeting was interrupted by three pro-abortion students disrupted a meeting to accuse the chapter of “endangering others” by advocating for the life of preborn Alaskans.

Vandalism of pro-life displays is also not uncommon across the nation. Last month, the Bowling Green University police arrested a pro-abortion student who partially destroyed and stole from a Students for Life America display.

Similar crimes have occurred all across the nation at pro-life rallies, churches and clinics.

    Of course the “pro-choice” baby murderers attacked the pro-life folks. Once you are all in on murdering babies, anyone who calls you to task for that becomes an enemy. The abortion folks know they are evil. They would prefer that nobody notice that, however, but they just can’t seem to control themselves and it ends up outing them as the violent destroyers they are.

  • Richard Eide says:

    Among the greatest displays of courage is challenging the current of wokeness in our universities. People of high moral character are expected to remain hidden. Highest honors to students who stand tall for “The Innocent”!

  • Andy says:

    They suffer not only disease of the flesh, HIV, syphilis, ghonnorea, monkey pox, but clearly disease of the mind and spirit, I pray for their salvation.

    • Lucinda says:

      Those maladies are not confined to the non heterosexual community. Depending upon your zesty enterprises, you too may endure them. Should you contract one of those awful diseases, may I suggest that you accept medication over prayer?

  • Joe Drayton says:

    Lucinda thank you for pointing out that STD’s are a concern for everyone. No one is suggesting that although homosexual men who lead in all the classes of STD’s are the only ones who can be afflicted with STD’s. Of coarse what would one expect from the Homosexual lifestyle where the only purpose is self gratification through sex.

  • Steve Peterson says:

    The left just can’t stand any opposition to their pro-death agenda, be it killing babies or disfiguring youth. Liberalism used to be just that, now it is fascism which allows no views but its own.

  • CD says:

    Way to stand up for the voiceless, Arctic Students for Life! I am so grieved that the pro abortion group is swallowing the lies. God, open their eyes.

    Ever listen to Glenn Beck? Here is a fantastic video that Glenn put out recently. The message is good. Please listen to it.

  • Dorothy DeBlauw says:

    Thank you Arctic Students for Life for the ProLife Display!

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    I wonder if UAF took any action to ensure that this attack did not occur again?
