I received the e-mail from Dr. Morton about the “Justice for All” group coming to campus. Being curious about the group, I looked at their Web site, which discusses the harms of the death penalty. The site says nothing about abortion.

Walking past Dexter Lawn, I found it ironic that JFA had signs that were three feet tall warning me of “graphic images” when I could see the graphic images far before I could see the sign. I find it sick and disgusting that they used photos of fetuses (probably without the permission of the women who had the abortions) to further their twisted agenda. If you look at photos of any medical procedure, you will have blood, tissue and bone in the photos.

One of the group’s most blatant lies was that having an abortion increases a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer. I’ll give you just a little background on this topic that was taken from the National Cancer Institute’s Web site: “In February 2003, the National Cancer Institute concluded that having an abortion or miscarriage does not increase a woman’s subsequent risk of developing breast cancer.” The report can be found at www.cancer.gov/cancerinfo/ere-workshop-report. It’s up to you: Are you going to believe information that has no reputable source or are you going to believe the National Cancer Institute? If you choose the former, feel free to contact me so I can sell you some magic beans.
