The DePaul University Young Americans for Freedom chapter
hosted a Flags for Life Project to mark the 40th anniversary of the
historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. YAF club members set up 500 flags
at 7:00AM Tuesday morning on the DePaul campus (half blue, half pink) to
symbolize just some of the lives lost every day due to the injustice of

At about 5:00PM Tuesday evening the DePaul YAF chairman,
Kristopher Del Campo, along with other executive board members, went to remove
the flag display. But what they found was startling; the flags had been removed
and stuffed into trash bins inside and outside the entrance to the DePaul library.
Del Campo contacted the DePaul Public Safety, who are reviewing
videotape evidence that 3-4 females removed the flags around 4:30PM. The
incident is still under investigation.
“It is a sad thing to see that liberal minded students aren’t more tolerant, and don’t respect the views of those who respect the lives of the
unborn”, stated Del Campo. “Especially on a campus of one of the nation’s
largest Roman Catholic institutions, such as DePaul University.”
When will the intolerance end? Conservative students are
being silenced every day on campuses around the country, and we must help them
continue to fight, even in the most hostile environment in America: the college
We will keep you updated as the investigation progresses.
