The anti-abortion group Project Truth displayed enlarged abortion photos and posters on campus Sept. 28 that led to reactions among students.

Project Truth posted displays of four, 8-foot-high panels consisting of vivid images of aborted babies and fetuses to emphasize their beliefs on abortion.

City College students Leigh Powell, psychology and nursing major, and Robert Parks, political science major, said they became enraged with the anti-abortion displays and began picketing.

“This group is just shocking people with these horrifying images,” said Powell. “It’s sickening. Show me some real statistics for why it’s bad. Tell me how the risks of cervical cancer go up with each abortion. Give me other reasons other than, ‘It’s not OK with God.’”

“I don’t have a problem with religion,” said Parks. “What’s right for me shouldn’t be forced on everyone else.”

Student response to the displays varied.

“The pictures are very graphic,” said Artavius Galloway, a 26-year-old business major. “Abortion, it’s a tough call. If a girl is raped she shouldn’t bring a baby into the world that she didn’t want.”

He said his organization has toured all over Californian campuses, such as CSU Monterey and San Francisco State, two tours a year for three years.

“The pictures are absolutely necessary,” said Reeves. “They show a reality and cause discussion, which is what education is all about. A college campus is the perfect setting for this kind of tour.”

City College nurse Wendy Gomez sat at a small table next to the displays in the Quad with a large, purple bowl of candy-colored condoms. Students grabbed handfuls on their way to class. “Cultivating the mind body and spirit” is printed on brochures for City College Health Services, which were also available at the booth.

“City College Health Services is here to give students information on prevention, answer questions and support the students in a nonjudgmental way,” said Gomez.

According to Gomez, she wants students to utilize health services offered so they can optimize their college experience.

“It’s great that this Health Services booth is here,” said Shaleen Snow, civil engineering major. “It’s important for people to have choices. It’s so one-sided over there,” referring to the anti-abortion display.

Snow says her brother contracted HIV when he was 17 years old.

“That really opened my eyes to advocating alternative ideas in sex education – methods that teach prevention and safety in a way that isn’t shameful,” said Snow.
