YMCA boots pro-life students: The can’t use shower facilities because they are too political, which upsets pro-abortion crowd

A local YMCA has refused to allow a pro-life student group to use its shower facilities, after initially agreeing to do so.  The Town Lake Branch of the Austin, Texas YMCA refused to honor its promise after pro-abortion patrons complained. 

The Students for Life took a caravan of college-aged students from across the country to the capital of Texas to show support for a state bill that would ban abortions after the 20th week. "We had absolutely no problems on Monday night when we used their facilities," said Brendan O'Morchoe, SFLA director of field operations, as reported by LifeSiteNews. But the pro-abortion activists who helped shout down legislators objected strongly – and YMCA officials kicked the pro-lifers out.

“Some angry pro-abortion activists were being very aggressive with YMCA staff members and the staff said they felt threatened,” O'Morchoe said. “The YMCA rescinded their offer to help because of the complaints of a few people on one side of the abortion issue and we were discriminated against based on our political position."
The YMCA blamed the students claiming that their use of the shower facilities was bringing politics into the facility.  The students were later accommodated at a local Catholic school.

I suppose if they will stoop to baby killing, the pro-aborts will stoop to anything! Remember that when the YMCA comes calling for your dollars.
