University of Cincinnati ProChoice Group Exploits Women With Giant Posters of Women’s Genitals To Protest Against ProLife Abortion Posters

This is a syndicated post from Politics to Parenting and Everything in Between. [Read the original article...]

This group of pro-abortionists are upset over seeing actual pictures of aborted human beings and fetus in the womb, that in retaliation they use naive college students to exploit themselves with graphic pictures of their biological body parts? 

I don’t see the connection other than the vagina being the body location where most live births are delivered[unless a C-section is required] and where abortionists enter women to destroy a living and growing human being. Other than that they are exploiting women’s bodies. It is pornographic to display women in such a manner and call it art or a form of protest for women’s rights to abortion. 


Abortion is gruesome and if they dislike it so much perhaps they shouldn’t support women having them, as not only are human lives destroyed and killed, but many women regret their abortions and always wonder “what if”. 

Abortion and death are forever, why take the risk of ending your own life in the process. Legal abortions aren’t always safe for the mother and fetus. 99.9% of the time the fetus will die, but the majority of women will also suffer a loss and live with that regret.

“The University of Cincinnati has given the green light to a pro-choice group to put on an outdoor display of female genitalia posters on campus amid vocal opposition from anti-abortion activists.

The college’s LGBTQ Alliance and UC Feminists say the 12 photos of vaginas are meant to cause discussion aimed at discrimination and exploitation of women’s bodies.
The project called Re-envisioning the Female Body also wants to counter a pro-life demonstration on campus last year that featured giant posters of aborted fetuses.

University President Santa Ono called the event a ‘teachable moment,’ saying in a statement that UC is an academic community where ideas and images are analyzed and debated, however controversial and complex they might be.
He also says the school is a public institution obligated to protect the right to free speech under the First Amendment.
The controversial exhibit includes a dozen 4-by-6-foot images of some female students’ genitals displayed from an ‘ironically medical perspective,’ with the legs fully spread as if during a gynecological checkup. 
Controversial: Twelve billboard-sized photographs of vaginas have been placed outside McMicken Hall on the University of Cincinnati campus as part of a pro-choice exhibit

The posters are accompanied by quotes from the models regarding women’s health care, abortion and their personal gripes with matters of sexual identity.

Sarah Coressel, one of the students who posed for the exhibit, told Cincinnati.com that she was nervous before the project got under way, but felt empowered and proud in the end. 
‘I’ve never really been comfortable with myself, and this is kind of me taking my body into my own hands and saying, “This is what I can do and I can do it if I want to,”‘ Coressel said.
In their Facebook manifesto laying out the ideas behind the project, the organizers said that the display is in response to the gruesome images of fetuses brought to UC’s campus by the pro-life Genocide Awareness Project
‘Their billboard sized photographs equated mutilated fetuses with genocide victims in an effort to shame women, comparing reproductive choice to holocaust,’ the statement read.

Our demonstration serves to call attention to the vagina as a site of conflict in medical, legislative, domestic, and representational arenas.
‘Its purpose is to incite conversation about the objectification, exploitation, and discrimination of women’s bodies in advertising, health care, reproductive rights, and queer identities.’

The UC Students For Life group had tried to clamp down on the display before it went up, saying the billboards have no purpose other than ‘shock value.’
‘It’s just pornographic,’ vice president of the anti-abortion group, Annmarie Condit, told WCPO. ‘All this display was going to do is promote a rape culture on campus. These pictures look at women the way a rapist would look at them.’
In a letter given to UC President Ono and Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, an attorney for UC Students For Life wrote, ‘the billboards are a clear violation of Ohio law,’ according to a press release.
