Fifty white balloons could be seen floating near the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas Friday afternoon. Each balloon was tied to a baby bottle.
The balloons were a part of the Cemetery of the Innocent, which represents the number of aborted fetuses every day in Minnesota. The St. Thomas group Students for Human Life organized the demonstration.
Sophomore Kristin Vasko handed out informative fliers to students passing by.
“We are bringing awareness to the abortion issue,” Vasko said. “It is not a protest and nothing spiteful.”
Junior Matthew Slattery has been involved with the group since freshman year.
“I think a lot of women need help and get neglected advice from society,” he said.
The fliers given to students provided Minnesota abortion statistics. The sheets also provided contact information for options other than abortion.
