From a press release by the Georgia Tech College Republicans:
Beginning Monday, GTCR set up a “Cemetery of the Innocent” display on
Skiles Lawn in recognition of the 34th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. The display consisted of 48 white cross grave markers–one to represent each of the one million unborn babies killed by abortion since 1973–as well as several signs explaining their significance. The display was to run Monday-Wednesday on Skiles Lawn in the middle of campus.
On Tuesday, January 30, the entire display was stolen and all the crosses and signs are still missing. After informing the appropriate campus departments and administrators of the situation, GTCR Campus Activism Director David Hotle filed an official police report and the Georgia Tech Police Department is investigating the incident.
“The theft of GTCR’s Pro-Life display is clearly an attack on free speech and expression by an intolerant individual or group,” said Hotle, who coordinated this project. “Abortion is a controversial issue, but rather than engage in debate and dialogue, someone chose to steal our display and deprive other students of the opportunity to see and experience the display’s message.”
