GAP is a traveling photo-mural exhibit which compares the contemporary genocide of abortion to historically recognized forms of genocide. It visits university campuses around the country to show as many students as possible what abortion actually does to unborn children and get them to think about abortion in a broader historical context.
GAP has just announced that beginning this September it plans to add video to its display. One video will show the reality of abortion, previously only available on CBR's website, and the other will show remarkable early fetal development at the age most mothers abort - most of whom are college age. Take a look...
GAP changes minds and causes a stir wherever it travels. For instance, the Calgary Sun reported June 24 about the University of Calgary Student Union's failed attempt to yank club status from the Campus Pro-life group all because it brought GAP to the campus.
The photo right, via LifeSitenews.com, is of U of C campus security threatening to arrest pro-life students at their GAP display in November 2008.
I can hardly imagine how much video will enhance what GAP already has going on.
Your donation will help launch this cutting edge but expensive endeavor. Give here.
What makes GAP and JFA displays so effective is not simply displaying static materials, but meeting the outrage and frustration with solid explanations and genuine dialogue. This creates a conversion/pebble in shoe situation, and leaves those who engaged with a need to resolve their own personal beliefs about life and what they are defending.
It would probably be a very good idea to shield the video display with several layers of safety - plexi. When the reality of abortion hits the screen, some tempers are going to flare really bad.
Additionally, the motion is going to change the dynamic considerably - especially if Gregg contrasts joy of life scenes with abortion scenes.
Should be exceptionally powerful.Posted by: Chris Arsenault at June 29, 2010 11:03 AM
Although the statistics show that 50 % of abortions are done on women between the ages of 18 and 24 (college age), a med student here last year told us that the girls coming for abortions at the hospital are much younger than that. They are for the most part, high school girls, 14-16 years old, and some are brought in by their parents. I wonder why the stats aren't reflecting that if it is true.Posted by: Julie Culshaw at June 29, 2010 11:04 AM

Glad to see these guys continually pushing the envelope!Posted by: Brad Mattes at June 29, 2010 1:50 PM
Excellent news. This kind of visual display format is an effective means to telling the truth, that simply cannot be accomplished with mere words.Posted by: Emmett Dwyer at June 29, 2010 4:05 PM

"I wonder why the stats aren't reflecting that if it is true."
Might have something to do with who is keeping the stats.Posted by: yor bro ken at June 29, 2010 6:23 PM
Or perhaps the younger girls are taken by parents to hospitals (actual medical establishments), but young adults are more likely to go to abortuaries?Posted by: ycw at June 29, 2010 8:09 PM
