Bama Students For Life brings controversial group to campus
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Most people don’t automatically think of genocide when they hear the word “abortion,” but Bama Students For Life (BSFL) wants them to. BSFL will host Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) on April 10 and 11 on the quad outside of Bidgood Hall. GAP is a large photomural display consisting of images of historical and contemporary genocide.
GAP is a project of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR), which BSFL invited to campus to educate students about abortion.
“Showing students photos of abortion may make some people uncomfortable, but that doesn’t change the facts about abortion—it’s a gruesome, bloody procedure that murders an innocent human,” said Courtney Pixler, President of BSFL. “If the pictures are so offensive, then the act of abortion is much more offensive. Social reformers throughout history have used graphic images to show both the humanity of the victim and the inhumanity of the crime. GAP is part of providing students with comprehensive information about abortion. People have a right to know what abortion looks like.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “America will not reject racism until America sees racism.” His niece, Dr. Alveda King, now says in the same way, “America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion.” CBR shares this philosophy.
“These photos demonstrate the injustice of abortion—an injustice that words often fail to fully communicate,” Pixler said. “The truth sets people free, and we believe that students have a right to medically accurate, comprehensive information about abortion. That way, they can understand what abortion truly is.”
CBR has been erected over 200 times at nearly 75 universities and a number of urban areas across the United States. CBR is sending a team of pro-life volunteers to stand with BSFL at the display and discuss the images with interested passers-by.
Some CBR volunteers will be wearing shirts that say, “I Regret My Abortion.”
“The purpose of showing students images of abortion is not to condemn anyone who’s had an abortion,” Pixler said.
