Love of Truth Ministries volunteers displayed images of fetuses to aid in explaining their views on abortion in the Sombrilla Plaza on Oct. 23.

“We think it’s an atrocity that so many babies are being killed through the act of abortion,” Kristi Chandler, volunteer at Love of Truth Ministries, said. “We would like to ultimately prevent abortions from happening.”

#ChangeRapeCulture, UTSA Spectrum and UTSA’s Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter held a counterprotest against the ministry and their message about abortion.

“[The counterprotest] was a good effort to turn this pro-life atrocity of an event into a pro-choice rally,” Xenia Flowers, co-leader of UTSA Spectrum, said. “I think the effect of [the counterprotest] is to effectively distract [Love of Truth Ministries] from being able to talk to students who would be more susceptible to their propaganda.”
