People & Crowds at the Georgia State University GAP, Atlanta, November 12 & 13, 2007

This girl helped man the pro-life students' table.
Studying the image.

Hundreds of students crept by the display--typical rush hour traffic in Atlanta.

The location was in a valley between buildings. People filled the space as they looked and conversed.

With city noise and all the talking in an enclosed space, the enviroment was intense, but everyone stayed peaceful. For a close-up of this (and any other) photo, click on the image. The Meat is Murder person with the green sign was anti-abortion too.

Protestors @ Georgia State GAP, November 13, 2007

Good question. However, she/he is missing the point. We are in the midst of our own Rwanda.
Likely some of these protestors were not students.

The officer ordered this person to move his sheet. "This is not negotable," he said. The person did not move until the officer gathered up the sheet.

The "Dimes Kill Babies" guy. He shouted this absurd message for an hour or more and, naturally, lost his voice.
This, of course, is a lie. Not to mention, ignorant. We should sue them for libel.

Etymology: Abortion IS Genocide

An examination of the appearances in English of the Greek root, genos, or the identical root in Latin, “gen” is insightful. Generation (and generate), genetics, genesis, engender, generous, generic, progeny—all of these strongly suggest that Greek/Latin meanings are not limited to “race” or “nation” (in which case the Greek word ethnos as in “ethnocide” would be more fitting), but actually may be closer to “origin,” or “creation,” or “beginnings,” or “descendents.” The National Geographic Society documentary, In the Womb, says that “fetus” means "offspring," and most online dictionaries agree. Progeny, with the root “gen” also means “offspring” in which case the term “genocide” applies EXACTLY to the killing of humans in their earliest stages of life.
