COLUMBIA - The Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) came to the University of Missouri-Columbia campus to host a photo-mural exhibit on Monday about abortion.
The Students for Life organization at the university worked with GAP to bring awareness to students about abortion. GAP visits campuses around the country comparing historical genocides to abortion using massive photo murals. The event will go until 5 p.m. About 15 posters showing graphic images were displayed at Lowry Mall while group members handed out pamphlets to passing students.
(Editor's note: This story originally stated that the MU Office of Chancellor's Diversity Initiative approved the exhibit. That is not the case. The office states it was never contacted on the matter and had no role in the exhibit.)
