Students at U. Tennessee Want Free Speech Limits Placed on Pro-Life Group
“There are limits to free speech and people don’t consent to seeing things that can be traumatizing such as this”
Many people on the left are not even pretending to believe in free speech anymore.

University of Tennessee students want free-speech limits placed on pro-life group
Some students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville want to see limits on free-speech after a pro-life group came on campus last week.
The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform uses graphic imagery showing what an aborted baby looks like. CBR also compares abortion to the Holocaust and lynchings of African-Americans.
“Why are these people allowed to table on campus? This is so much more belligerent and misleading than the normal pro-life tables that usually inhabit this quad,” student Sean Heiser wrote in an Instagram post on September 27.
Heiser wrote further:
This is an [ high-level research] University, and these people dwell in pseudoscience and thrive off anti-intellectualism. Their rhetoric traffics in religious and moral extremism, intimidation, emotional manipulation, and hate. This isn’t a partisan issue, this is about fostering a safe and equitable learning environment. They should not be here, and when you stand near their booth, the emotional distress of students is palpable.
Heiser has some support in his attempt to limit the free-speech rights of views he does not like.
“There’s free speech and then there is displaying violent imagery and graphic imagery such as this,” Haze Karmo told the Daily Beacon. “There are limits to free speech and people don’t consent to seeing things that can be traumatizing such as this,” Karmo told the campus paper.

I’m so old, I remember when fascists like this would be summarily expelled, with no explanation needed (because it was so obvious).
Perhaps these students could start with themselves, by limiting the only speech they have the (moral and legal) authority to limit- their own?
(Yes, I know: those who would limit free speech are never interested in limiting their own: it’s always “free speech for me, but not for thee.”
(Or in the latest formulation, “Your speech is violence, my violence is speech.”)
How can anyone even halfway understand the horrors of murdering babies unless they get to see the injuries inflicted? “Clump of cells,” indeed!
