“I have just changed my mind!” at East Carolina University

Photos awaken the moral conscience of our audience, opening their minds to understanding.

Although words may say that abortion is evil, photos actually show just how evil abortion really is.  Big difference.

Made them look.  At our Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) at East Carolina University, a female student said it best, “I didn’t want to look but I had to look.”  She was pro-life but had never seen the evil on display.  Now, when a friend says, “I am pregnant,” she will be more likely to step forward to offer counsel and assistance.

“It (GAP) opened my eyes … ”

I have just changed my mind!  Another student started by saying abortion might be a viable choice for other women, “They are little human beings; I wouldn’t do it, but…”  A few minutes later, after seeing how slavery was a “choice” in the 1800’s, she exclaimed, “Well, when you put it like that, I have just changed my mind!  I understand what you are saying.”

I had no idea.  A male student expressed the sentiments of most college students when he said, “I had no idea this is what abortion was. They are so tiny, and that is a hand!”

College students are a microcosm of Americans in general.  The vast majority have never seen and do not want to see the gruesome reality of abortion.  We must confront that ignorance with real abortion pictures.

The need to see.  Another student said “It’s gruesome.  I didn’t know how developed it is so early.”  She went on to say, “People do need to see this; maybe they will make different decisions.”

Opened my eyes.  A communications major was quoted in the school paper, “It (GAP) opened my eyes to the situation; it gave viewers a different way to see it.  The pictures were graphic but sometimes it may take that to get a point across, especially for something as big as life.”  Common sense from a college student!

The smoking gun.  Do you see a common thread?  Disturbing photos of abortion victims pierce through the lies and deception to inform common sense and conscience.

Victim images have been the smoking gun for every successful social reform movement in our history.  We must continue to put them in front of Americans, over and over and over.
