CWN Editor's Note: A mob of 250 people surrounded the site of a pro-life student meeting at the University of Manchester in England on March 1. Police assisted the students in leaving the building.

“Leaving the building was the most terrifying part, we were surrounded and people were screaming in our faces,” said a pregnant mother who attended the meeting. “I really thought our lives were in danger. The crowd was extremely violent—spitting, throwing eggs, screaming and swearing.... Most of them had their faces covered.”

    I am impressed that academia has become so anti-intellectual, that what would be obvious: anti-life proponents saying they fear violence if pro-life people even meet or talk. yet, the anti-life people are the ones performing all the violence. How is this not obvious, when someone violently attacks people because they fear violence?
