Tensions rose on the quad Thursday afternoon as members of opposing sides of the abortion debate congregated near the Stallions in the university’s free speech zone.
Representatives of Bobcats for Life, a pro-life organization, had planned to hand out cupcakes on the Quad Thursday in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month. They call this event they call “Cupcakes for Life,” said Ashlyn Rathburn, Bobcats for Life president.
“We’re celebrating the lives of the unborn,” Rathburn said. “We were trying to make a voice for those babies who are aborted due to disabilities.”
