Student Senate at U. Maryland Condemns Pro-Life Display and Says it Needs More Trigger Warnings

Student Senate at U. Maryland Condemns Pro-Life Display and Says it Needs More Trigger Warnings

“Warning signs were placed but they kept falling down, the student paper reported.”

Nothing sends the campus left to the fainting couch like a pro-life demonstration.

The College Fix reports:

Student senate condemns pro-life group’s display and wants more trigger warnings

The University of Maryland Student Government Association added an “emergency” item to its Wednesday agenda after a pro-life group set up a display on campus.

The legislation “would see the Student Government Association condemn the demonstrators’ tactics and ask the university administration to describe how enforcement of its policies could improve,” The Diamondback reported. A photo from the display can be seen above.

The student paper does not link to an actual copy of the legislation. The SGA did not respond to an email and a Facebook message Thursday morning that asked for a copy.

The SGA wants to see more trigger warnings for Created Equal, an outside pro-life group that brings graphic images of abortion to campuses. “I hope that the bill puts in forth stricter regulations for groups who want to come and protest,” one bill sponsor, Jessica Levenson said. “Things like that should have much more trigger warnings.”

Warning signs were placed but they kept falling down, the student paper reported.

Bill co-sponsor Nicholas Marks felt the need to ask the university to intervene after a member of Created Equal allegedly put some information into the basket of his bike.

“I felt like the methods the anti-abortion protestors were using went against the established guidelines the group came into the university with,” Marks told The Diamondback.  “I actually had a leaflet put into the basket of my bike.”

Created Equal set up on campus on Tuesday.

“We’re just here to create dialogue with people about the topic of abortion,” Evangeline Abaffy told the paper.

Auditioning to be on school boards after they graduate?

I guess picking up the leaflet and tossing it in a trashcan without reading it’s ‘horrifying’ contents is too difficult for their student body?

When they get their own place and a JW leaves them a doorhanger, they’re going to have a total meltdown.

Oh my gosh! A leaflet! The violation of his safe space and the right to not be exposed ideas that might be unpleasant to him! We need a tougher law! An emergency meeting! A STRONGLY WORDED LETTER NEEDS TO BE WRITTEN!
