Pro Life on Campus at California State University Long Beach
The Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) returned to California State University Long Beach (CSULB) in April, hosted by the Catholic Newman Club. What a rare thrill to work with a Christian group with the courage of their convictions!
- CSULB Catholics bring pro-life advocates to campus
- Bio-Ethical Reform should not be allowed to display graphic photos for its anti-abortion campaign on campus
- Letter to the editor: Genocide Awareness Project
- Letter from the editor: the ‘Genocide Awareness Project’

“Our goal is to get them banned from campus because of how uncomfortable it makes people feel.” (Karina Sarabia, sophomore English major) [Translation: “Messages and people who make me uncomfortable must be banned.”]
“Everyone has the right to demonstrate his or her beliefs, but … these pictures should not be displayed in the center of campus ever again.” (Tuyen Dinh, junior journalism major) [Translation: “The US Constitution is a living, breathing document, so we can make it mean whatever we want it to mean at the time. My friends and I get to decide who has rights and who does not.”]
“[Their signs said], ‘Do not engage’ or ‘Want to help? Just walk away. Do not engage.’ Were they attempting to silence GAP because the pro-life side was actually making sense and was more compelling than theirs?” (Meredith Amon, CSULB Sophomore) [Answer: Yes!]
“A university is a place for learning, so there is simply no excuse for the ignorance that was on display two weeks ago.” (Ariana Sawyer, Opinions Editor) [Translation: “Ignorance = any knowledge I wish to avoid.”]
“If the pictures are scarring and viewers are uncomfortable, wouldn’t your next thought be ‘why?’ Why the negative reactions? There must be something disturbing about what is being photographed. A picture is nothing but a neutral, unbiased portrayal of what is on the other side of the lens.” (Dyanne Roper)
