Members of a Students for Life group at Purdue University are facing an aggressive backlash on campus for distributing pro-life flyers and chalking “all lives matter” on sidewalks.

The group, known as “Purdue Students for Life,” created flyers containing the slogan “hands up, don’t abort,” appropriating the rhetoric of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which regularly chants the phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” during protests in honor of Michael Brown, who allegedly had his hands up when he was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo.

“Black children are an endangered race,” the flyer also stated.

Purdue Students for Life told Campus Reform the purpose of the flyer was to show that Planned Parenthood clinics are disproportionately built in dominantly black neighborhoods.

“The goal of doing this is really to bring to light…how specifically the African-American community, minorities in general, are being targeted by Planned Parenthood and being exploited in the name of empowering women,” group member Kevin Lasher told The Indianapolis Star.
