Created Equal, a social action movement focused on ending abortion in America, recently caught on videotape its display outside Ohio State University being destroyed by an angry student.

"It follows that those who support dismembering preborn babies would be willing to … act unlawfully to censor photos depicting victims of abortion," Mark Harrington, executive director of Created Equal, which describes abortion as "the greatest human rights injustice of our time," said in a statement

"This misguided student needs [to be] taught a lesson on the U.S. Constitution and about the protections granted to all of us under the First Amendment. We won't be intimidated by these types of unlawful acts and are more committed than ever to exposing the horror of child killing to high school and college students all across the U.S."

The incident occurred on Tuesday, when a female OSU student walked up to the newly set-up anti-abortion boards which featured graphic images of the abortion process, and began trashing them one by one

The student, not identified, pushes them to the ground, pulls them apart, stomps on them, and goes on about how much tax dollars would have to be spent to take care of America's growing population in a profanity-laced rant.

Created Equal said that it contacted the Ohio State Police department after the incident, who identified the suspect. The anti-abortion group will be pressing charges and seek financial compensation for the damaged signs.

Created Equal, as the name suggests, sees protecting unborn life as a civil rights issue, and features a video of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivering his famous "I have a dream" speech on Capitol Hill on Aug. 28, 1963, on its website.

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal,'" the Baptist minister famously said, though his exact stance on birth control and abortion has been debated.

In January, a group of 20 vandals trashed another pro-life display, this time at the nation's largest Catholic university. A campus conservative group had erected pro-life flags around DePaul University in Chicago, Ill., but found them thrown and stuffed into trash cans one morning.

Young Americans for Freedom had received special permission to plant the 500 blue and pink flags (symbolic of the number of abortions each day in America) to mark the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the U.S.
