High-school and college-age young people recently took part in a pro-life training camp, which included a protest outside the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The teens held signs that read “ABQ: America’s Auschwitz” outside the museum on Thursday, but one protester admitted not knowing much about the local abortion laws (video below).
“Since I just got here, we’ve been learning about [Albuquerque's abortion laws] since then, so I don’t know too much,” the unidentified teen told KOB News.
The young protesters also went inside the museum to hand out leaflets and demanded an "inclusive" exhibit comparing the Jewish Holocaust to abortion.
“We need to show the truth about abortion,” said one protestor.
In response, the museum shut down early on Thursday.
The out-of-state young people paid $250 to be part of the training session by the pro-life group "Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust" whose website reads:
Survivors Camps are designed to involve YOU in exciting and effective activism. This FIRST-EVER New Mexico Camp will take place in Albuquerque, the Abortion Capital of the Southwest and the Late Term Abortion Capital of the country — a location that provides endless opportunities for much-needed activism.
However, some residents were offended by the protest and signs.
“We are hurt and outraged that these out-of-state extremists would come to our city and disrespect one of our most important landmarks like this,” said one resident.
New Mexico does not have any term limits on abortions.
