Well, UNC’s 2005 Fall semester hit the ground running and so have we. If you haven’t been kept up to date on everything that’s been going on, I’ll try to sum it all up for you as concisely as possible.
Our meetings are held on Tuesdays at 5:00 PM in available rooms in Bingham (typically room 108) where we do any sort of planning, discussing, training, and/or preparation for upcoming events.
So far this year we have hosted Brenda Shafer, RN, to speak about the horrors of Partial-Birth Abortion (which still goes on and is perfectly legal in all 50 states of our country!) from her experience as a nurse in an abortion clinic. She included in her speech a presentation of abortion procedures, including partial-birth, with dolls of fetuses and tools used in each grisly process. As a witness from the inside and with medical knowledge to boot, her details were informative yet nonetheless ghastly - because they were all true.
We were also given the chance to show our presence here on campus during National Life Chain Day, where all over the nation pro-lifers joined in an effort to promote awareness of the horrifying truth that is abortion. On October 2, pro-life volunteers formed a chain along Franklin Street and held signs together stating, among other things: “Abortion Kills Children,” “Women Deserve Better,” “Adoption – the Loving Option.” Lots of people saw us and rarely did a car drive by without a face peering from a window.
Our next big event is hosting another speaker on October 26 – the Wednesday after fall break. This woman had an abortion – and then delivered her very-much-alive daughter not much later; this is a great opportunity to discuss the survivors of abortion who are mostly swept under the rug. For more details or to help out, come see us in Bingham! More details will be available here soon.
