Students at Hunter College in New York City are under fire after they posted a video on the Internet showing them partaking in an eyebrow-raising game. The clip shows the group playing “Abortion Battles” — the title of which gives clues to its contentious attributes.
The activity, which has captured the ire of anti-abortion advocates, involves wearing an inflated balloon under one’s shirt. Then, opponents face-off with plastic forks in an effort to pop one another’s faux fetuses.
The uploaded clip, which was apparently captured in the Hunter College cafeteria, was posted to YouTube and subsequently went viral on Wednesday. The individuals depicted in it can be seen with plastic forks — the tool they use to “attack” one another, WCBS-TV reports.
Here’s a report from WPIX-TV that further explains the video’s contents:
Students can be heard yelling, “Kill that baby! Just do it!” among other sentiments.
In a video description on the original clip, accompanying text read, ”We were introduced to this epic game called ‘Abortion Battles.’ It’s somewhat unorthodox, but it’s really fun! Lol!.”
Watch the full video, below (courtesy of the Post):
A Hunter College spokesperson told the Post that the college is investigating the incident and that it was not something the school had sanctioned or supported.
“It seems to have been something spontaneous that took place in the cafeteria,” she told the outlet.
