    A student senate leader at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point has told pro-life display supporters they have no right to express their opinion on the volatile issue of abortion.

    "It's not your responsibility," Roderick King, a sophomore at the school and member of its student senate, shouted at activists who had assembled a display of white crosses in the campus lawn – with university permission.

    "[Abortion] is a right. You don't have the right to challenge it. Write a paper. Do NOT! Do NOT put this in front of all of us. This is not your right," he hollered, grabbing crosses with both hands, yanking them from the ground and throwing them to the side.

    The episode was captured on a YouTube video:

    Funny how ONLY the pro choice people can talk but when a pro life person tries to talk they get told to STFU.

    This is a stupid kid who doesn't understand the law. Don't worry, if any portion of the state is involved, the ACLU will defend the rights of the anti-abortion demonstrators.

    Agreed.

    Abortion is Pro-Death more then pro choice in the end.

    He was wrong, but what he had to say is interesting:

    Because, of course, a man who doesn't feel the need to control women *must* be gay, right? And, of course, that's teh worst insult you can think of. :eusa_doh:

    No Jillian he said that because of the way he talked and his flamboyant attitude.

    It's his choice either way.

    *watches video*

    You know, I kind of find the image of the uprooted crosses strewn about the lawn a bit more compelling than the image of the crosses standing in neat rows. It suggests haphazardness and violence.

    Someone else in need of understanding that free speech means allowing people to say things you disagree with. Bit of maturity needed there I think.
