UGA Students’ Prolife Posters Repeatedly Stolen, Trashed All Week

University of Georgia’s Students For Life sought to advertise “Prolife Without God” speech by Secular Pro-Life national president

On Tuesday night, as University of Georgia sophomore Elizabeth Ridgeway waited at a south campus bus stop, she noticed a hooded male approach a paper banner displayed across the intersection announcing an upcoming prolife event.

He tore the banner down, crumpled it up, threw it in a nearby trashcan, and walked away.

Ridgeway, a campus journalist for The Arch Conservative, walked over to investigate. She salvaged the banner and took a photograph of the vandalism, one of a recent string of occurrences against prolife students.

For the past week, its members have advertised an upcoming speaker event called “Prolife Without God” featuring Kelsey Hazzard, president of the national organization Secular Pro-Life; and for the past week, signs touting that visit have disappeared campuswide, sophomore Rebecca Stapleford, president of the University of Georgia chapter of Students for Life, told The College Fix.

“I keep putting the posters up … and someone keeps taking them down,” Stapleford said. “I put them up, go to class and within an hour they are gone. I put them up again, and within five minutes they are gone.”

Posters have disappeared in several academic buildings as well as residence halls, the Miller Learning Center, and bus stops, she said. The prolife student group replaced the stolen ones as quickly as possible, however Stapleford says she has spent $30 of her own money for such efforts.

Secular Pro-Life’s Hazzard is scheduled to arrive today on campus for the event, as planned, and said this is the first time vandalism has preceded one of her speaking engagements, but that she is not surprised by the news.

“The abortion movement is frustrated that the pro-life message is gaining ground, particularly among college-aged people,” Hazzard said. “Some have, unacceptably, let out that frustration by attempting to censor their pro-life classmates.”

What’s more, this is not the first time UGA’s Students For Life has had their displays destroyed.
