FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 17, 2014

Genocide Awareness Project came to Radford University, protesting against Abortion Rights 

Protestors from the project travel to different college campuses across the country, informing them of their beliefs on abortion

The Genocide Awareness Project came to the Hurlburt Student Center, or the “Bonnie”, at Radford University from Nov. 12 to 14 to protest against abortion and persuade students to have their same views.

The project set up pictures of actual aborted children all around the entrance to the Bonnie and went up to college students at Radford University as they came in and out of the building, confronting them about their beliefs on abortion.

The director of the Genocide Awareness Project, C. Fletcher Armstrong, was seen taking photographs of his team and also protested against Radford University students and faculty that passed their path.

“We want to expose the injustice and make people uncomfortable. It ought to make students uncomfortable,” said Armstrong. “The pictures usually get a bad reaction from seeing babies in pieces and that’s what we want. We want students to be aware of the cruelty that comes with aborting unborn children.”

Sophomore Krysti Streeter had heard about the Genocide Awareness Project, and wanted to see if it was as bad as everyone said it was. “It’s so bad. They are really doing the most. The pictures suck, and the words with the pictures suck,” said Streeter.

The Genocide Awareness Project tries to persuade collegiate students not to get abortions, and only get pregnant because they want to raise the child. They also use the large displays to show college students the dehumanization of babies and spread the awareness of the issue.
