“Bishop Brennon [sic] serves on the Pro-Life Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: an organization that distributes FALSE CLAIMS about abortion”
This is a sign of where this debate is headed. Religious opposition to abortion is going to be branded as hate.

‘Free abortion’ supporting students protest Catholic bishop on campus
On the day in which most New Yorkers mourn the loss of those from the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers in 2001, a local pro-abortion student group used Sept. 11 to urge activists to fight religious liberty at an upcoming event on campus.
“Bishop Brennon [sic] serves on the Pro-Life Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: an organization that distributes FALSE CLAIMS about abortion that have been debunked by organizations like The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and Physicians for Reproductive Health,” the group posted on Sept. 11 to Instagram.
“We believe that everyone deserves access to safe, quality, and free abortion on the timeline that they choose using their preferred provider,” it continues.
To combat the event, CUNY for Abortion Rights called on other students to “voice your support for abortion rights” by meeting at the Queens College student union the same day as the Mass.
The group’s post also links to a Planned Parenthood web page with tips for protest signs, including to avoid writing “women” or “girls” and instead use “pregnant person” rather than “mother.” The abortion provider also instructs protesters to make references to Handmaid’s Tale, a novel and Netflix series that depicts a dystopian society where women are oppressed and forced into childbearing.
Maria Matteo, a Media and College Relations official at Queen’s College, told Campus Reform that, “Open and respectful discourse on topics of importance to all members of our exceptionally diverse college community is encouraged as a matter of free speech.”
