March 5, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Giant-sized photos of female genitalia are coming to the University of Cincinnati this week.
On Wednesday (March 6th), the University of Cincinnati Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Alliance and the UC Feminists will host a panel lead by Planned Parenthood. On Thursday they will host an “art” display called Re-envisioning the Female Body (WARNING: graphic) featuring 12 billboard-sized images of female genitalia on campus.
The group says the obscene display comes in response to a recent appearance of the pro-life Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) on campus. GAP uses graphic photos of aborted babies to compare abortion and other past genocides.
But according to the pro-abortion group, the pro-life display is part of “an effort to shame women, comparing reproductive choice to holocaust.”
“Our demonstration serves to call attention to the vagina as a site of conflict in medical, legislative, domestic, and representational arenas,” they said in a statement. “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.”
