Pro Life on Campus at East Tennessee State University (ETSU)
CBR organized a Choice Chain at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) last week. Jane Bullington and Renee Weber from Knoxville met up with Mick and Edie Hunt from Asheville at the Borchauck Plaza on the ETSU campus for a day of pro-life outreach. Hand-held “Choice” signs show passersby what “choice” really means (a dead baby) and draw a crowd. We handed out hundreds of our “Unmasking Choice” brochures and spoke with students all day long.
It was a beautiful day; students continually crossed the Plaza. Some saw and quickly turned their heads. They were trying to ignore the reality of abortion, but it didn’t work … a glance is enough. Others wanted to talk. No matter how big or small the exhibit, the debate is always the same.
Chelsey was so upset, she whimpered that she is pro-life, has not had an abortion, but wanted us to know that we were “doing this the wrong way, in case no one has ever told you.” (If Chelsey only knew!) Chelsey is studying to be a counselor and she is sure abortion photos will traumatize women … that women will not be able to recover from seeing them. She didn’t seem to realize that women won’t recover from the abortion unless something compels them to repentance. Chelsey may not have had an abortion herself, but it was apparent that someone in her life has been personally affected by abortion.
Three young women were passionate about educating their fellow students and gave us their contact information, so we may help them continue the battle on campus … including more Choice Chains and the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP).
A class was coming across the lawn when the teacher spotted the signs. They were high achievers, very polite, and very interested in what we were doing.
