Abortion Debate on Campus
The Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) is a traveling photo-mural exhibit that compares the contemporary genocide of abortion to historically recognized forms of genocide. We visit university campuses around the country to show as many students as possible what abortion actually does to unborn children to encourage them to think about abortion in a broader historical context. In addition to the photo-murals, we also hand out thousands of this convincing brochure that explains the genocide comparison in detail.
Studies show that although most students come to college pro-life, a huge percentage change their minds and consider themselves pro-choice by the time they graduate. College students are at the age where they are experiencing an abundance of freedom without the benefit of accountability. They are extremely abortion-vulnerable. So, the college campus is a great place to intercept them and give them facts about abortion before they make up their minds.
By placing abortion images alongside traditionally recognized forms of oppression and subjugation, we are expanding the context in which people think about abortion. Throughout history, we as a society have a sad legacy of dehumanizing those who get in our way or have something we want. And once dehumanized it becomes very easy to justify mistreatment and destruction. Such is often the plight of the unborn child.
The college campus is an incredible place to educate our nation's young people about abortion. Throughout history, our centers of learning have been seen as a "marketplace of ideas," where students are taught to think freely. What better place than this to encourage our young people to look beyond what culture tells them about abortion? What better place to show them the truth?
