Pro-life event met with protests at UC-Berkeley

On Thursday, April 4th, Kristan Hawkins visited Cal-Berkeley for the second year in a row to deliver her “Lies Feminists Tell” talk. About 80 to 90 people turned out for the presentation.

During the talk,  some students started protesting her speech by silently standing near her with coat hangers. This went on for about 75 minutes, until the Cal-Berkeley Police Department stood in between Hawkins and the protesters.

Earlier in the day, while Berkeley Students for Life were tabling on campus with the Planned Parenthood Truth tour, a student stole one of the display banners and threw it into a nearby river. The Cal-Berkeley students also kicked and tried to tear down the Cemetery of the Innocents display as well.

    Some VERY SICK and brain washed students!!!!!!

    But, that is CAL…. so whom is surprised??????

    And to think in the 1960’s they protested and fought for their ‘right to speak’ against the Vietnam War.

      The Left has never cared about free speech for its own sake. In the 60s, free speech was demanded to advance the revolution, now free speech is suppressed as the Left controls communication, media and academia.

  2. If there is anyone who can stand up to these people it is Kristan Hawkins. God has called her for a reason and the anti-life people have met their match!

    GOD BLESS Kristin Hawkins and her wonderful pro-life group, Students for Life!

  4. In the 1960s, the U.C. Berkeley kids acted worse than wild animals, with their dangerous, violent “protest” shenanigans! By contrast– whenever we would see Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King on TV, with his very excellent and noble cause, for the Black people– we would see a well-dressed, well-educated, highly-respected minister, a top-notch speaker and writer, intelligently communicating his message, seeking proper social changes in intelligent, respectful, well-behaved, non-violent, peaceful ways. Good pro-life leaders of today, are similar. God bless Kristin Hawkins!

  5. I feel so sorry for these students. The horror: they’ll have to use hangers to succeed in killing unborn babies if the likes of Hawkins get their way. Doesn’t that just move you to tears? Can you imagine a worse society than one in which, in order to kill your child, you have to use (gasp) a hanger? Oh, the injustice! Surely, we can provide these people more efficient means to murder children.

  6. We can stipulate that abortion is horrible. At the same time, however, we must recognize that many women will choose abortion over carrying to temr.

    • The reason these women will “choose” to murder their unborn, because will live in a society which has been corrupted by sexual license and telling these women it OK

    Instead of Planned Parenthood and abortion– why not offer lots of maternity homes for unwed mothers– plus, good, safe places to leave unwanted babies? And outlaw abortion, as before Roe vs. Wade. The “option to kill”— abortion– should not exist!

      Roe did not legalize abortion, it only “outlawed” state restrictions against it. Abortion was legal in a number of states years before Roe, and the “option to kill” will continue in those states when/if Roe is overturned.
