A discussion of abortion through a Genocide Awareness Project has led to students demonstrating against it at Middle Tennessee State University.
The organization known as Prolife on Campus came to MTSU on Monday to bring awareness of the effects of abortion.
Big, jumbo sized posters were seen in the middle of the Student Union commons area which displayed images of aborted fetuses, comparisons to genocide with the Nazis, information pamphlets, a polling table on being for or against abortion, and more.
Some students who saw the signs on Monday, came back with their own signs on Tuesday being for pro-choice. NewsRadioWGNS' Jackson Jones has more...
We spoke to MTSU student Laurel Dillard about why she is protesting against Prolife on Campus...
Dillard continued to say she saw some women walking away crying from the organization's display. Other students came out with signs to support with Dillard.
We also spoke with Prolife on Campus Project Director Maggie Egger about what brings them to MTSU...
The organization welcomes discussion and protests. They said it helps bring more exposure to the ongoing discussion.
Prolife on Campus is powered by Center for Bio-Ethical Reform. On the group's website it reads, "CBR was founded in July of 1990 as a privately-funded, non-profit educational corporation." They are strictly non-violent, do not engage in civil disobedience, and all activities fall within the legal bounds of the First Amendment, and oppose violence against unborn babies and abortionists.
They've recently visited other schools such as University of Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida.
