As a young, pro-life activist in college, my daily life looks pretty different from most other students.

My peers wake up and scroll through social media; I wake up and scroll through all the hateful and threatening comments I’ve received overnight.

These past few days have been especially terrible as I’ve received more than 20,000 messages after a pro-abortion comedian made a viral video attacking my pro-life beliefs.

I’ve been told that I should have been aborted and should get killed or raped — so 'pro-woman,' right? However, while I find it very disturbing, I can’t say I’m surprised.

The abortion lobby supports violence in the womb when a baby is deemed an inconvenience … so of course they support violence against people like me, as I’m also inconvenient to their narrative.

That’s why when a popular TikTok creator made a video criticizing me, her audience immediately flocked to my social media accounts to spread hate, find out my personal information and wish horrific violence upon me.

The video, posted a few weeks ago, already has more than 3 million views.

Popular creators are echoing support for bashing me, including transgender celebrity Dylan Mulvaney who commented, 'Nailed it.'

Lydia Taylor, a pro-life college student, faces threats of rape and murder because of her stance on abortion.

Abortion supporters claim to believe in 'No uterus, no opinion', yet they send death threats to women who hold different opinions.

Despite facing continuous backlash, I refuse to be silent because the greatest victims of abortion are the preborn children killed every day.

I’ve been told countless times by abortion supporters that they are going to get pregnant and name the baby 'Lydia' after me just so they can abort it.

As a spokesperson and intern for Students for Life of America (SFLA), I relentlessly work towards making my state of North Carolina pro-life.

We successfully passed a 12-week abortion prevention act, saving preborn lives and providing funds to pregnancy resource centers.

On campus, our SFLA group has made a pro-life impact by passing a resolution to provide more accessible pregnancy resources to students— the first pro-life resolution ever passed at my university.

Despite receiving death threats, I have changed over 120 students’ minds on the abortion issue.

Ignoring the extreme attempts of the abortion lobby to silence us, we, the Pro-Life Generation, strive to promote a life-affirming culture.

The violent tactics displayed by the abortion lobby have actually convinced people to reject the pro-abortion side.

Our mission to fight for the rights of the preborn and support women will not waver, regardless of the hostility we face.

Every day I face threats and hatred, but every night I go to sleep knowing I am fighting on the right side of history.
