    Pro-life advocates, pro-family organizations, and traditional Christians do not expect to get a fair shake in the media, but the dogged, seasoned journalists of the prestige publications have overlooked a disturbing new trend: an increasing number of left-wing activists claim that destroying or defacing other people’s property is part of their First Amendment “free speech” rights. At LifeSiteNews.com, I have reported on the desecration of a pro-life display at Western Kentucky University. After a campus pro-life group got university permission to set up 3,700 crosses to represent the number of children aborted every day, a student named Elaina Smith placed...

    HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - President Bush on Friday warned against shielding the U.S. economy from global competition in a speech that was sandwiched between fundraisers for Virginia and Kentucky lawmakers facing tough midterm elections. "The United States of America must not wall ourselves off from the world and must not forget our duty to lead the world," Bush said at Northern Kentucky University where he expanded on a theme of his State of the Union address. To stay competitive, Bush said, the United States needs to keep taxes low, encourage entrepreneurs, secure the future solvency of Medicare and Social Security,...

    Highland Heights, KY -- Six pro-abortion students charged with vandalism in the destruction of a pro-life display at Northern Kentucky University will have the charges dropped and be required to perform community service as a result of their actions. However, a British literature professor who encouraged the students to destroy the pro-life display won't receive the same treatment. Assistant Campbell County Attorney Rick Woeste announced the decision Thursday but said he objected to including professor Sally Jacobsen in the community service agreement. Jacobsen's attorney Margo Grubbs, told the Cincinnati Post he was enraged by the decision to drop the charges...

    On April 12, Sally Jacobsen, a tenured professor at Northern Kentucky University, gathered a handful of her graduate students during a break in her lecture to demolish a pro-life display on campus. Miss Jacobsen was angered when the newly formed Northern Right to Life group created a campus-approved exhibit which included approximately 400 small white crosses meant to represent a cemetery for aborted fetuses. The exhibit was accompanied by a sign explaining the demonstration. Miss Jacobsen was photographed stomping on and destroying that sign, and she, along with the students whom she incited to destruction of property, ripped up, destroyed...

    Here are a few of the remarks posted by NKU students about Dr. Sally Jacobson. I think you'll see a pattern: The topic was supposed to be womens writing which I learned a great deal about, but it took her forever to get into the actual topic. The class was fun even with the sexual humor. She let us have snacks,it was during dinner time. She graded papers so harsh even the writing center told me I would have problems, but tests were a breeze. she is a ****en idiot. do not, i repeat, do not take her I had...

    Highland Heights, KY -- A university professor who was forced to resign after leading a group of pro-abortion students in vandalizing a pro-life display has attacked pro-life advocates in a private email to the students involved. The email also encourages the students to "make it hard" for police investigating the vandalism to find them. News of the email is surfacing just hours after Northern Kentucky University professor Dr. Sally Jacobson issued an apology for her actions. Jacobson apologized Tuesday evening in an interview with a local television station, but told the NKU student newspaper she will no longer grant interviews...

    [Kathryn Jean Lopez 04/17 10:28 PM] Statement by NKU President James C. Votruba April 17, 2006 I am writing to comment on the recent destruction of an approved campus display created by the Northern Kentucky Right to Life student organization. One of the important roles that a university must play is to be a forum for debate and analysis concerning the important issues of the day. Often these issues are surrounded by strident rhetoric and strong emotions which makes it even more incumbent on the university to create and nurture an intellectual environment in which reason and evidence prevail and...

Campus police are investigating the...

    Highland Heights, KY -- A Northern Kentucky University professor who destroyed a pro-life display against abortion and encouraged her students to vandalize it as well is defending her actions. Dr. Sally Jacobsen, a British literature professor, called the display "silly" and said her free speech rights allowed her and others to trash the display. As LifeNews.com reported on Thursday, Jacobson and several students from her class vandalized a pro-life display of hundreds of crosses that the campus pro-life group had set up earlier in the week. The professor and her students were caught on camera and seen by other witnesses...

    HIGHLAND HEIGHTS - A professor at Northern Kentucky University said she invited students in one of her classes to destroy an anti-abortion display on campus Wednesday evening. NKU police are investigating the incident, in which 400 crosses were removed from the ground near University Center and thrown in trash cans. The crosses, meant to represent a cemetery for aborted fetuses, had been temporarily erected last weekend by a student Right to Life group with permission from NKU officials. Public universities cannot ban such displays because they are a type of symbolic speech that has been protected by the U.S. Supreme...

    A Liberal Professor of Northern Kentucky University violated not only State Constitution, State laws, Federal Constitution, Federal and state hate laws, 1st Amendment violations, and Criminal Vandalism laws, but also forced her students, during class, to also violate every law in the book because of her personal politics, hatred, bigotry, and genocidal inclinations. She had her students destroy a Pro-Life demostration because she did not agree with it.. how's that for left-wing tolerance? It's the typical Liberal Hyprocracy, Do what I order you to do, but anything I do is fine. Here is the story from the Northern Kentucky University...
