A pro-life college student is sharing her experiences of being on the receiving end of violence and criminal behavior from pro-abortion students. Yet despite that, she still remains determined to fight for life.

In a blog post for Students for Life of America (SFLA), Student Leader Lydia Taylor stated that she leads the North Carolina Pro-life Force and serves as president of the Students for Life of America (SFLA) group at Campbell University.

“As a pro-life student activist, I spend every day being glared at on my way to class, going through hate messages on social media, and sometimes even being physically attacked all because I’m against killing babies,” she said. “Sue me for my humanity, right? Yet, despite all this, I wake up every day with a burning passion to keep fighting against abortion no matter what I face.”

Since the fall of Roe v. Wade in June, Taylor said the attacks have increased, including violent behavior following pro-life rallies and events.

“I walked into a public bathroom, and, unbeknownst to me, I was followed in by an abortion supporter who assaulted me,” she said, explaining this happened after a pro-life rally in Raleigh. “She violently slammed me against a wall and cursed at me, calling me a ‘pro-life b*tch.’ Before I could come to terms with what happened, she ran out of the restroom, leaving me in shock at what had just unfolded. Due to a lack of security cameras, we were unable to identify who had assaulted me, but it was certainly not the first time I’ve seen the abortion lobby act with physical aggression towards peaceful pro-lifers.”

Later, her group erected a Cemetery of the Innocents display in memory of preborn children killed in abortion. Campbell University administration had assured them that security would ensure the display would not be stolen or destroyed, as has happened in the past. Yet those promises were in vain.

“When I went to check on our memorial, I watched as several groups of students stomped on our display, stole our flags, and walked away with campus security watching and doing nothing,” she said. “I took it upon myself to follow and identify these students who had just committed acts of theft and vandalism, but by the time we took down the display, more than 56 flags had been stolen from our Cemetery of the Innocents, and our campus security had done nothing to prevent it.”

Despite these setbacks, Taylor remains determined to continue in her fight for life.

“We are fighting to make our university pro-life so that our administration is quick to provide helpful security and support for our group as we face abortion extremism instead of looking the other way,” she said. “While the obstacles in our pathway are saddening, the challenge for the sake of the preborn also burns a fire inside me to continue fighting until abortion is both unavailable and unthinkable.”
