As another organizer of the counter protest, I would just like to point out the following:

  • Our position was neither pro-choice or pro-life, or position was that the images were too graphic for public display outside of a main eatery.

  • All view points are welcome on campus, but the position of the large display made it impossible to avoid for those who did not want to be exposed to the graphic nature.

  • Their warning signs were misleading (Images of Genocide Ahead, did not specify the nature of the images) and not far enough away from the images; you could already see them by the time you got to the signs.

  • The display was endangering the physical and psychological health of many students in its graphic nature; several students became physically ill after viewing the images.

Once again, our argument wasn't pro-choice or pro-life, it was about the students being allowed to say that they did not want such grotesque images outside of a main campus cafeteria.

In response to adolphochs, please visit their website and think about whether or not you want to be eating around the images of chopped up, decaying, mutilated, and bloody bodies and fetuses. I, and almost 550 other students and staff, and anyone else with a normal gag reflex, would like to be protected from this instance of bad taste.
