Pro-Life on Campus at University of North Carolina Greensboro
by Jacqueline Hawkins
At high noon of Day 2, they descended upon us with rage and fury. It was our first time at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG).
Day 1 of the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) had been cold and rainy, so almost no one stopped. But everyone saw the pictures, and they held their response for better weather. Along with the sunshine, their opportunity for hysteria had now arrived.
They came with notebook paper signs, vulgar chants, and even satanic ritual, but we held our ground and let the signs do the work. Seasoned GAP veterans said this protest was one of the largest and most vitriolic they had ever seen. The protesters stayed all afternoon, until we carried away the last sign.
The shouting, jeering crowd was perhaps wearisome at times, but their 5-hour exposure to the GAP display was a huge victory. If 3 seconds gets the point across, who knows what 5 hours can do?
But it wasn’t just the pro-aborts who responded. After seeing our signs, Ashton boldly announced that she would organize a new pro-life club on campus. At the end of the day, 3 brave pro-life students pitched in and helped us break down the display as their peers vented their rage. Talk about guts! They had never met each other before, but now they were working on their first pro-life project together!
Pro-Life on Campus at UNCG was a huge success! Thank you for supporting our work!
