A display of abortion statistics organized by youth is lumped in with the “rape culture” according to Slutwalk organizer, FED UP Vermont.
Sigma Phi Epsilon, a fraternity at the University of Vermont, is under investigation for its offensive survey that asked members: “If you could rape anyone who would it be?”
Outraged, feminists at UVM responded with a petition that states: “This egregious expression of rape culture is only the most recent example of systemic sexism at UVM. The past year alone has witnessed rape, multiple sexual assaults, and anti-abortion chalking in public spaces.”
Anti-abortion chalking? How shocking!
The “chalking” was a youth-directed display of statistics aimed at educating students about the abortion industry. For example, blacks and Hispanics and women in their 20’s have the highest rates of abortion. On a global scale, sex-selected abortions target females causing an imbalance of genders.
The event was pre-approved by the university, but short-lived. By the next day, outraged vandals had erased the abortion facts.
Everyone has reason to be outraged by the frat’s offensive rape question. But the feminist organization Fed Up Vermont dilutes its message when it lumps child advocates with rapists. Feminists might not like abortion facts, but grouping pro-lifers with rapists? Really? That’s like calling rapists pro-life.
Rape is the use of physical violence to force sex on an unwilling victim. Abortion is the use of surgical or chemical violence to kill a victim within a woman’s uterus. Not only does abortion kill the baby, it can injure the woman, and is a cover-up for rapists since it erases the evidence.
Instead of erasing chalked information that makes them feel uncomfortable, students could utilize their energy and minds to change the actual statistics. How valuable is a college education where you simply eliminate inconvenient truths?
Feminists are rightly outraged at the frat’s rape question. So why does Fed Up Vermont defend the offensive question that the million dollar abortion industry answers on a daily basis: If you could abort anyone who would it be?
