(CAMPUSREFORM) — The University of California at Santa Barbara has settled out of court with a group of pro-life activist students who were assaulted by a professor in early March.
The incident in question happened on March 4, 2014 when a group of 13 pro-life demonstrators were on campus speaking to students about abortion and distributing educational literature. Mireille Miller-Young, a professor in the Department of Feminist Studies, saw the group and was “triggered” by their signs depicting abortion victims.
Miller-Young approached the group with several pro-abortion students, stole one of the pro-life signs, and marched away. One of the pro-life students, Thrin Short, followed her. While attempting to get on an elevator with Miller-Young, Short was pushed and received scratches on her arm when Miller-Young grabbed her.
