Pro-Life on Campus at University of North Carolina at Wilmington
It was by far the best campus Christian organization we have ever encountered. They are Ratio Christi and they don’t have time for the “pizza for Jesus” tomfoolery that wastes so much time in youth ministry today. Young Christians are very weak because nobody is preparing them to take a stand. But Ratio Christi is different; their unofficial motto seems to be, “We’re trying to pick a fight!” And they are good at it!
The fight we helped them pick was over child sacrifice at the U of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW). Ratio Christi, along with College Republicans (CRs), invited us to bring our Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) and Pro Life Training Academy (PLTA) to UNCW for the very first time. By God’s grace and your support, we made quite a splash.
Our display location was along the Chancellor’s Walk, which is the primary walkway to get from anywhere at UNCW to just about anywhere else.
Campus newspaper coverage of GAP:
- The Ever-Growing Controversy: Pro-choice or Pro-life? (published about a month before GAP)
- Genocide Awareness Project comes to UNCW
- Controversial Comparison of Genocide and Abortion
Local news coverage of GAP:
- Two UNCW student organizations bring controversial display to campus
- Controversial display has people talking at UNCW
Lightning was an issue both days on campus. For our GAP displays, CBR has adopted the NCAA protocols for outdoor athletic events (although our staff and volunteers are normally much less exposed than the typical baseball center fielder). We vacate the site whenever lightning is detected within a 6-mile radius (less than 30 seconds between lightning flash and sound of thunder), and stay in a sheltered location for 30 minutes beyond the last such strike.
