No matter what side of the abortion issue you fall on is irrelvant. This is about someone who violated the law in several ways, disregarded the idea of freedom of speech, and tarnished the image of the UCSB. If the protestors were violating some law or policy the professor should have contacted the police or someone in authority. If the situation was reversed, and someone did this to her as she was holding a Pro-Choice poster I am sure she would be asking for the same type of justice (if not more). As Noam Chomsky said, "If you believe in freedom of speech, you believe in freedom of speech for views you don’t like. Goebbels was in favor of freedom of speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If you’re in favor of freedom of speech, that means you’re in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise." Please know that this is not to show support for Pro-Life. This is to show support for our freedom of speech, our laws, and justice.
