Anti-abortion activists speak out

“We’re here for the Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust.” said Mary Rose, a volunteer who was invited to Cerritos College by religious studies major Jose Espinoza.

The Survivors are a Christian, pro-life activism group, that target high school and college age adults.

According to its website, “If you were born after 1972, we challenge you to consider yourself a Survivor of the Abortion Holocaust. 1/3 of your generation has been killed by abortion in America.” (http://bit.ly/2SEcrB)

Rose was on campus Tuesday trying to educate students about abortion and the effects of the procedures.

According to a 2008 studies by the Guttmacher Institute, 214,190 women obtained abortions in California “producing a rate of 27.6 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age.” (http://bit.ly/uV8ZR)

The group consisting of Rose and some volunteers passing out pamphlets.

It also put up poster boards containing information abut the methods used at different stages of development.

Another board contained a photo of an aborted fetus with the question “Does this bother you?”

“We’re just here trying to engage conversations with students in a peaceful manner, regarding the issue of being pro-life and the issue of the harsh reality of abortion.” Espinoza said.

Students on campus had different reactions to the posters.

Daysy Maldomado, a kinesiology major, was surprised by the pictures but supports the group.

“I’m against abortion. It didn’t bother me whatsoever. They were kind of disturbing. From far away I couldn’t tell what it was.”

Psychology major Oscar Jaramillo was not offended by the posters, but was upset.

“Well it really doesn’t bother me, but I know it might bother some other people because it’s a public campus and they shouldn’t really be showing that.”
