GAP off to a rousing start at George Mason University

Great start for GAP at George Mason University (GMU).  In fact, we spent 4 days at GMU, the Pro-Life Training Academy (PLTA) on Sunday (March 23), GAP on Monday and Wednesday and Choice Chains on Tuesday.

Abortion images are nothing new at GMU.  Anna Maher and GMU Students for Life display abortion photos on a regular basis.  More to come.

    It was fantastic having you all at Tech! The GAP project is on point. I have heard objections to it, such as using the murdered children as objects and not having their permission to use their photos. For me, GAP is so poignant because, I feel, it brings awareness to the injustice done to these children. Whenever I see the pictures of aborted children, the only thing I see is a person–not a means to an end or objectified body parts–and when I see those people, the only thing I can think is ‘Where is THEIR justice?’, ‘WHERE IS THIS PERSON’S JUSTICE?’ In my eyes, I see the uncovering of their plight as at least a small sliver of justice. These people were murdered and you all are giving them some semblance of justice by acknowledging that fact instead of denying it–and you force others to see it as well. Uncovering the travesty allows for another thing: Mourning. These are people who were never named, never cared for and they were never mourned. Whenever I see those pictures, like the pictures of the holocaust and lynching victims, I mourn them. Every life lost should be mourned, because every life counts. Emmett Till comes to mind and 60 years later, I mourn him as though he were a family member–had his mother not done what she did, very few people would be able to acknowledge what happened and mourn his pain and loss.

    My school wrote an article about your coming to campus and it said that you all crossed ‘big lines’. I found it quite interesting because lines are not considered crossed when someone on campus shows graphic images of the possible effects of smoking, the possible effects of crystal meth, and the possible effects of drunk driving. Notice that all of these things I just listed are mere possibilities. That is not to discredit them, but the fact of the matter is that if you choose to smoke you could be stricken by a terrible cancer than will leave you deformed and disabled at the age or 42–or you could die peacefully in your sleep at 99. Those particular graphic images are what MAY happen if you make certain choices. However, when it comes to things like the pictures in the GAP project, there is no maybe, or possibility or perhaps. Once you make the decision, a dead and mutilated child is what you get every single time.

    God bless you all. You are in my prayers. I’m sure you know this already, but I just want to say anyway that you all are changing and saving lives.
