Hopkins_display_810_500_55_s_c1by Kelli

I certainly find it ironic that a university that has dedicated itself to the advancement of medicine and biology would find displaying medically accurate fetal models disturbing and offensive.

I mean, these are images shown in high school textbooks.

~ Andrew Guernsey of the JHU Voice for Life, a pro-life group on the campus of Johns Hopkins University, reacting to the banning (and then lifting of the ban) of a display featuring life-like models of human fetal development, as quoted by Maxim Lott, Fox News, April 15

The article also notes an email sent to the student group, rejecting their display. In part, it read: “We’ve reviewed your pictures with our advisers and have determined that your display contains triggering and disturbing images and content.”

LifeSiteNews quotes another part of the email: “Out of respect for our relationship of the past 30 years, we would appreciate if you refrained from using the fetus models…. We hope you understand that our intention is not to restrict your freedom of speech or expression, but rather to create an inclusive and respectful environment for all.”
