Considering that Fairfield is a Catholic school, maybe it’s the College Democrats who are out of step here.

Pro-life students attacked for criticizing Planned Parenthood

It all started in October with rows of crosses. Pink ones. Nearly 1,000 of them.

They were neatly spread along a lawn at Fairfield University – a Jesuit-Catholic liberal arts college in Connecticut. The crosses stood as a representation of the 915 or so abortions that take place daily inside Planned Parenthood’s clinics nationwide.

The display was put up by Fairfield University’s Students for Life, and aimed to encourage “students on our campus to turn away from Planned Parenthood’s exploitation and to turn towards life-affirming resources,” according to the club’s Facebook page.

One might think that such a display would be innocuous at a campus that touts itself as a “Catholic university in mission and spirit.”

But it was all too much for some students, who accused their pro-life peers of putting up an offensive and insensitive pink “graveyard.” Critics included co-president of the campus’ College Democrats, who told the Fairfield Mirror student newspaper that she and others felt the display was “classist, racist and homophobic.”

Comments about the October pro-life exhibit on the school newspaper’s website called it “a cheap and offensive attempt at shock value.” Said another: “You and your peers created a hostile environment for students here.”

A third chimed in that the display “had no consideration for the perspectives of the student body and the goal to have an inviting and strong sense of community as our campus atmosphere.”

The pro-life display led to a dueling exhibit at the university late last month. The Gay Straight Alliance and the College Democrats rallied together in defense of homosexual sex and various safe-sex methods in an event partially funded by the university through its politics department, the Mirror reports.

The College Democrats hosted the event, called “Let’s Talk Sex,” with the help of Planned Parenthood representatives. It included a spread of tables addressing different topics, from “all the types of sex that can be had” to an “interactive” Planned Parenthood station.
