Planned Parenthood supporters taunted a pro-life group with abortion chants and songs and boasted about having abortions at a Texas university last month.
Students for Life posted a video this week of the incident on April 9 at the University of Texas-San Antonio. The organization had put out 911 pink crosses to create a "Cemetery of the Innocents," as a symbol for the number of abortions performed daily by Planned Parenthood. In the video, a half-dozen people brandishing "I Stand With Planned Parenthood Signs" stood in the middle of the grassy area, with students milling around in the middle of the day.

"I had an abortion!" one woman yelled to cheers as she ran into the cemetery, jokingly pointing at one cross and saying "there's mine right there."
"I just love to have sex and to abort fetuses, that's my number one kink," another woman said.
The video was edited so it's unclear whether they were responding to other students when they made their inflammatory remarks, although they appeared to be relishing trolling the pro-life students passing out literature against Planned Parenthood. The nonprofit is the nation's largest abortion provider.
"I had an abortion!" a woman yelled at one point. Asked if she was proud of it she said, "I'm super proud of it!"
They also chanted, "When I say ‘aborted,' you say ‘fetuses,'" and one did a variation of the Buffalo Springfield protest song "For What It's Worth," singing, "Stop, hey, what's that sound, all the fetuses are in the ground."
In a statement on the Students For Life website, Texas Regional Coordinator Sarah Zarr said the organization's members jeered at them and weren't willing to have a normal dialogue or debate.
"A few members did speak with us, but when they couldn't think of a response to what we said, would get mad and walk off. Then a bunch of them came with signs and stood in front of our display shouting that we didn’t have the facts," she said.
