NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some students were shocked Wednesday evening by a YouTube video showing male students at Hunter College pretending to stab and kill fetuses.

As 1010 WINS Holli Haerr reported, the YouTube video shows a game called “Abortion Battles,” with people in what is identified as a cafeteria at the public college on the Upper East Side. Male students have balloons under their shirts and take turns trying to pop each other with plastic forks.

Some students yell, “Kill that baby! Kill it!”

Students outside the school Wednesday night were surprised to hear about it.

“I think it’s immature, but it’s not like they were doing anything that bad,” a female student said.

“I find everything funny, so I find it a little funny, and weird,” a male student said.

Some thought the game might not be too bad if they had a different name.

“You can play around, but not call it something like that,” a female student said.

“I don’t find it particularly funny. I don’t find it’s offensive either. But I think that it’s just silly,” another male student said.

One student said sensitivity training may be needed.

By Wednesday night, the video was first taken private on YouTube, and then apparently taken down completely.
