ProLifeOnCampus at the University of Washington
CBR is at the University of Washington with our Genocide Awareness Project. You can read the story in the student paper here.
I’m always amazed at some of the incoherent responses to GAP that I read in student newspapers. I’m slow to blame the students who are quoted, however, for several reasons. First, I can tell you from experience that journalists don’t always get the quotes right. I’ve been badly misquoted in the past, not out of malice, but because of a lack of journalistic experience and skill. Second, as any car salesman will tell you, so many people resort to emotions rather than reason. (That’s one reason we must use pictures, in addition to reason, to present the pro-life message.) Third, so many of these students have suffered from lack of diversity all their lives. The university has exposed them to the full range of political thought in America, from far left to extreme far left. They’ve never been required to read “right-wing” documents like the US Constitution, the Federalist Papers, or anything else that might lead them to question leftist thought. They are encouraged to read only left-leaning publications like Newsweek, NY Times, or even the far-left Huffington Post.
At the bottom of the story, there is opportunity for readers to comment. For commenter Benny, click here for an article detailing when the medical community (and even pro-choice philosophers) say that human life begins.
I had to laugh at the suggestion that we pay for our campus work with the proceeds of lawsuits. (Who say’s pro-life work can’t be fun?!) I can assure you that we get zero funding from lawsuits. We need your help, now as much as ever. If only 20 people support our work as faithfully as you support cable TV, we can visit one additional campus every year. If you are not supporting our work monthly, please sign up for a monthly amount equal to your cable TV bill! According to Fr. Pavone, you will be saving lives like nothing the pro-life movement has ever seen!
