Stu­dent wrecks pro-life dis­play be­cause it made him ‘an­gry’

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Brad­ford Richard­son

A stu­dent re­peat­edly de­stroyed a pro-life dis­play at Wash­ing­ton State Univer­sity last week be­cause it made him “an­gry.”

Keaton Aspell said he left class Wed­nes­day morn­ing and was dis­gusted to find a “Ceme­tery for the In­no­cent” — 300 pink crosses rep­re­sent­ing 100 chil­dren aborted per day — stick­ing out of a quad.

“I was like, ‘This is dis­gust­ing,’” Mr. Aspell told cam­pus news­pa­per The Daily Ev­er­green. “I don’t think it cre­ates any type of unity. I think it just causes di­vi­sive­ness and they are just push­ing their re­li­gious agenda, and it re­ally made me an­gry.”

Stu­dents for Life again set up the dis­play, but Mr. Aspell later re­turned to take it down again.

Ni­cole Manzione, a mem­ber of the pro-life ad­vo­cacy chap­ter, said she was forced to call cam­pus po­lice.

Univer­sity Pres­i­dent Kirk Schulz re­leased a state­ment the next day em­pha­siz­ing the univer­sity’s com­mit­ment to free in­quiry.
