Student Accused of Running Down Pro-Life Display Facing Criminal Charges

A college student in New Hampshire that is accused of driving through a pro-life display on campus is scheduled to appear in court this week.

The trial for Emery Coxe, 22, will take place on Monday as the senior at Dartmouth College in Hanover is being prosecuted for disorderly conduct. Those on the scene of the April incident claim that Coxe ran over a display set up by the pro-life organization Vita Clamantis with his Toyota Camry, which was distinctive by its “coexist” bumper sticker. Students immediately called police to report the incident, who arrived shortly thereafter on the scene, along with campus security.

The display was called “Cemetery of the Innocents,” and featured 546 American flags planted in the grounds of the campus lawn, which symbolized the 54.6 million American babies that have been aborted since Roe v. Wade. Signs were also placed on campus that helped to explain the reason for the exhibit.

The leadership of Vita Clamantis states that “Cemetery of the Exhibits” was also defaced by other students, as some signs were written on and flags were stolen. A pro-abortion group set up a counter demonstration across the street as well.
