Pro-choice students at Johns Hopkins threaten to mob pro-life booth

Students in favor of abortion at Johns Hopkins University have threatened to mob a pro-life table at the Spring Fair this weekend. The Spring Fair Committee had banned fetal models from the North Baltimore Pro-Life Study Group’s booth, calling the model display offensive and disturbing. After JHU Voice for Life joined the group in protesting that decision, the committee reversed their ruling and will allow the models to be displayed.

“I firmly believe that that was the wrong thing to do. As a campus, Hopkins can tolerate a variety of students’ views,” said Andrew Guernsey, VFL Co-President. “The fact that fetal models are disturbing—I found that ironic that they found that disturbing given that Hopkins is a world-class medical institution. That would not be the case in my view.”

Why taxpayer funded abortion must end

April 15 is Tax Day — the day that Americans know and dread. For many Americans, it’s the day that tax returns are due to the government, but what the government does with that tax money has long bothered many pro-lifers.
