News Release: Pro-Abortion Students Attack Peaceful Pro-Lifers at GWU (Video)

Spitting, yelling and pushing was how pro-abortion students at George Washington University responded to a peaceful pro-life demonstration organized by TFP Student Action on Sept. 30, 2019.

  • “I just got spit on,” said TFP volunteer Matthew Miller.
  • “They threw soda or something on me and ran,” explained Joseph Jordan.
  • TFP volunteer Luis Solorzano was kicked in the back of the leg. “I think the attacker wanted to kick the TFP banner out of my hands,” he said.

While these assaults occurred, GWU police did not intervene until Washington, D.C. police officers arrived to help control the unruly mob.  “Finally, police officers created a buffer zone between the unruly mob and us,” explained TFP Student Action Director, John Ritchie.  “But the mob showed neither respect for the police officers nor obeyed their orders.  They just continued screaming: ‘My body, my choice.’”

Pro-abortion advocates used social media to organize in Kogan Plaza where they set-up a speaker and danced to loud, pulsating beats that emphasized the F-word.

  • “I eat baby lungs for breakfast,” screamed a male student.
  • “Hail Satan!” blurted another.

“The mob was hellish,” said Ritchie.  “They refused to acknowledge that every innocent human person – born or preborn – has the right to life.  Our culture has strayed so far from God and reason that what used to be self-evident is not so clear anymore, especially on left-wing college campuses where procured abortion is considered to be more than a right – it’s been granted the status of a secular virtue.”

For protection, police officers escorted the pro-family volunteers to their vehicles.  As they went, they sang God Bless America accompanied by three bagpipers.  Yet about 100 pro-abortion students followed them with taunting jeers and obscene insults.

“One of them put a pro-abortion sign on our windshield and others started spitting on the windows of our van,” explained Ritchie.  “If they don’t respect the most innocent lives of the unborn, do you really think you can trust pro-abortion activists to respect anyone?”
