Liberal Feminists Attack Catholic School for Allowing Abortion Protest!

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

A feminist group at Marquette University is denouncing the school for allowing students to engage in the “intolerant” act of publicly protesting abortion.

Last week, the student group Marquette for Life created a “Memorial for the Unborn” that consisted of 1,200 blue and pink flags to represent the roughly 1.2 million abortions in the U.S. last year. The memorial was promptly defaced. While the destructive stunt was praised by Marquette’s College Democrats, it was condemned by Vice President of Student Affairs Xavier Cole, who issued a statement saying “defacement is not dialogue.”

Now, Cole’s statement is being slammed by Marquette Empowerment, a student feminist group that claims the real problem is that Marquette students were allowed to protest abortion in the first place.

“Rather than fostering discussion and understanding, the display is damaging to the mental health of students and a disturbing act of public shaming,” the group said in an online statement. “In the past, students at Marquette have complained to university administration regarding the harmful nature of the display, which, until this year, employed crosses to emulate a ‘fetus graveyard.’”

The statement also complains that by using pink and blue flags, which represent unborn baby boys and girls, the protesters were offensively assigning genders to children before they could choose a gender on their own. (RELATED: Progressive Parents Throw Gender Declaration Parties For Teenage Children)

“The shift to pink and blue — gendered — flags offers no recompense to those interested in human rights and, rather, demonstrates the harmful and misguided conflation of sex and gender and promotion of the gender binary.”

Then, even, though Empowerment states it does not support the “defacement of property,” the group praises those who covered up Marquette for Life’s display with their own signs, and says there is no need to show tolerance for those opposed to abortion.

“To those activists and all those dissenters of policies and institutional stances that privilege oppressive narratives over your very existence, Empowerment says: Your pain and anger is valid … Do not listen when people tell you to be more tolerant of other’s intolerance.”

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
