UCSB professor battles anti-abortion group
March 19, 2014
An anti-abortion group is asking officials to prosecute a University of California Santa Barbara associate professor of feminist studies for taking one of their signs and destroying it.
On March 4, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust were passing out pamphlets and holding signs with graphic images of dead fetuses. Professor Mireille Miller-Young began yelling for the signs to be removed.
Miller-Young then grabbed a sign, gave it to two of her students and headed for her office with several anti-abortion activists following with a camera.
“I may be a thief but you’re a terrorist, Miller Young said as she walked away.
After Miller Young and her students entered an elevator, the activists attempted to follow and pushing ensued.
UC Santa Barbara police have sent a police report of the incident to the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office which will determine if criminal charges of theft and vandalism will be filed against Miller Young.
