Mixed Nuts at East Tennessee State University
In it for the money?
“You don’t believe this crap; you just want to provoke someone to hit you so you can sue,” a young man shouted.
“Professors cut down our grades for questioning or contradicting them. It is good to see this out here,” a young man told Jane Bullington.
Consistent to the point of silliness
“I truly believe it is not a baby until it is born,” the young woman said. Jane replied, “What do you see when you look at a friend’s ultrasound and the something is yawning and stretching?”
“It is not a baby.”
Maybe it’s a cat.
Awesome homework fodder
“I have a pro-life presentation in philosophy next week and I need a good argument.” Jane sent the young woman packing with loads of reading materials. Her presentation will make a difference.
Not easy, but it’s right
“I am 26 years old and have a child of my own. We have taken in 4 siblings from foster care too. It is not easy but it is right,” she told Jane.
On the clock
Kathy, a sociology TA who claimed to be a professor, cussed at volunteer Debbie Picarello, saying we are shaming women. She admitted to being post-abortive and did not believe that GAP was helping women. The conversation was laced with “F you” from the woman who was most likely being paid to be there. A male student was horrified by her behavior.
Making a stand on both fronts
Hally, a Christian student, said she was convicted about being out at the display. Her first thoughts had been about self-preservation but realized God wanted her there. She took a class taught by the Sociology TA who showed a pro-homosexuality film in class. Hally was publicly ridiculed by the teacher and the students for sharing a perspective outside what the professor had presented.
Struggling with the past
Volunteer Christy McKinney spoke to a student and mom of three. She was 31 weeks pregnant with her 3rd. Her 2nd child was 7. Her 1st was aborted. She had never seen the pictures and stopped to look at them. She was struck at how developed the child was in the 8-week abortion and looked at it for awhile. Her parents wanted the abortion. Looking back, she believes it was the “right choice for her.” While she said those words, Christy could tell that she was struggling to make herself believe it.
