“Almost did that to my son … Thank you” and more at Virginia Tech
Here are a few stories from GAP at Virginia Tech.
Almost did that to my son. A 40+ year old housekeeping staff was crying as she stared at the 22-week abortion picture. When asked if she was OK, she replied “I almost did that to my now 27-year old son. Thank you for being here. I will take a brochure back to women I work with.”
Pro-choice support for GAP. Even pro-choice students sometimes agree that women can have real choice only if they are fully informed. One pro-choice female student said, “Talking to you has helped me realize that pro-lifers are not what I thought they were. I was so angry because my roommate was angry about this display and so I had to come out to see for myself. I am so glad I talked with you. You are much friendlier than your pictures. Education on this topic is so important and even though I am still pro-choice, I want women to have all the information available to them.”
Another pro-choice endorsement. A female student: “I know why you do this; I just don’t like it.”
Too big, too horrific to ignore. The purpose of GAP is to force people to think about abortion when they would rather think about anything else. Our opponents admit that GAP works. One pro-abortion student told us, “Because of social networking across campuses, this message has not only reached Virginia Tech, but has gone far beyond. Facebook is abuzz about abortion and people on this campus plus many others are talking about abortion now.”
Bad emotions? A male student commented about the sadness of giving up a child for adoption. We told him that parents might very well feel sad to give up a child, but that is a much better emotion than the sadness and memory of killing their own child.
