H. G. Wells at Fayetteville State University

Fayetteville State University (FSU), a historically black institution, was a very calm school.  While there was definitely a good response in some that you can read about here, many students were quite indifferent.  There were no protesters and very little cursing.

Only a few students opposed our message, and they were not at all vocal.  A girl passed out popsicles to her friends and fraternities step-danced for their peers.

CBR Maryland Director Samantha Linnemann noted that “the most surprising thing for our entire team was the total apathy and indifference of the majority of students.  Many students merely sat or stood talking with friends, seemingly oblivious to the true horror and tragedy of abortion glaring right in front of them. They were totally indifferent about the deadly toll abortion has on their community.”

It was all reminiscent of the Eloi people in H. G. Wells’ classic The Time Machine.  The Eloi were childlike humans who lazed about without curiosity or discipline.  They had no need for intellect or strength.  It was more convenient not to work, so they didn’t.  But all was not well.  The Morlocks attacked and ate them at night.  Despite this danger, however, they did nothing.

It almost seemed that some FSU students nonchalantly accept abortion, even though it threatens the African American race.  It is far more convenient to do nothing about it, so they do nothing.

Even a young man who claimed that he cared for his future children — so much that he would never subject them to growing up in a poor, single-mother home — was perfectly fine with decapitating and dismembering those same children.  He essentially implied that he would abandon his own child, if she were inconvenient.  Better to kill the child than work to provide her with a good life.
