inconsiderate, unkind people *rant* (m/c & mature topic ment.)
I walked onto campus this morning at 8 am (not my best time of day), and was immediatly confronted with a huge anti-abortion board featuring an aborted fetus. This thing was gigantic, I'm talking twenty feet or so. And located in an area of campus that you really cannot avoid seeing it. I had to run to the closest building and hide in the bathroom while I cried myself out. And I was late for class. Of course the gigantic sign was then the topic of conversation for the day.
While I respect that people have a right to express their opinions on such matters, is it really necessary to do so in such a...large manner? Do these people not realize how hurtful seeing something like that may be, not only to a person who was forced to terminate a pregnancy but also to someone who m/c? That a woman who did loose her child, no matter the circumstances, may not appreciate having to see an aborted fetus blown up to twenty feet? That the reminder of what was lost is unecessary and painful? Did they think that they are on a hospital campus, and that pregnant women might walk past that, that women who miscarried might see it? Do they not care, or did they simply not think?
okay, rant over. I feel better....a little.
