Pro-life group struggles to find place on liberal campus

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Outside the U.S. Supreme Court, speakers blared with the frantic strums of guitars and the voices of four young men singing gospel songs — rock and roll style. Donning shaggy beards and seated on a makeshift stage, the four were among thousands of pro-life Christian activists protesting the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion.

Out on the streets, a small band of Yale students led a different chant.

Glory, glory, hallelujah! In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across the sea,” the Yalies’ voices sang in harmony, drowned out by the yells of other protesters who arrived here at the Capitol.

“The Battle Hymn of the Republic” was the anthem for 13 members of Choose Life at Yale (CLAY), an anti-abortion organization of Yale students, as they participated in the annual March for Life last Friday. Unlike many of the other protesters, the Yalies were dressed up for the occasion: slacks and ties for the men, peacoats and leather boots for the women. After all, they had been invited to meet with Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito LAW ’75 and hear him speak that afternoon.

...While the Yale students may have appeared a bit different from the other protesters this past weekend, they regularly feel different at Yale, where they are among a small minority who oppose abortion.

Apparently Yale pro-lifers are about as scarce as hen's teeth, but they get to meet with Alito! Good for them for standing up for the unborn to their elite classmates!

Good to see that some elites are standing up for the little people instead of exterminating them. I don’t expect the trend to continue of course.

I don’t understand how a semi-intelligent person could think there is some arbitrary line after conception where a human becomes a person. But I suppose it is just proof that one can be an intellectual and simulatneously devoid of basic logic and common sense.

It’s not that Yalies aren’t smart enough it’s that they just don’t care. The hard left hates humanity and they hate the least ‘useful’ humans most of all. They are cold, calculating, and totally selfish. Doesn’t matter if they come from Yale or Cheeseburger U.
