On Tuesday afternoon, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, vandals allegedly destroyed an anti-abortion display on the main campus of the nation’s largest Catholic university.
At 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning, members of the DePaul University chapter of Young Americans for Freedom erected a makeshift monument marking the Supreme Court’s landmark – and still controversial – decision on abortion.
The display was part of YAF’s Flags for Life Project, according to YAF’s blog. Club members set up 500 colored flags on the campus quad in Lincoln Park to symbolize the lives they believe are lost each day as a result of legalized abortion. Half the flags were blue, and half were pink.
