Letters to the editor: Group steals choice from passers-by
In light of the men, women and children who have lost, and continue to lose, their lives to genocide, I found the recent deceptively-named “Genocide Awareness Project” manipulative and appalling.
I was also appalled on behalf of my eyes, which can never un-see the graphic images which were so large that no amount of warning signs could keep anyone with business on campus from viewing them.
But why should it be surprising that a group intent on taking away a woman’s right to choose would also take away our right to choose whether or not we wish to view disturbing graphic material?
It is very possible for non-consensual exposure to these gory images to have acted as a trigger for someone with post-traumatic stress disorder, particularly women who may have suffered miscarriages, or who are troubled by past abortions.
The key word is “non-consensual,” so congratulations, GAP, you are one step closer to your true goal.
