A latest flag show on the College of Victoria on Vancouver Island was an awesome instance of how a easy, highly effective show can maintain folks speaking concerning the difficulty of abortion.
The flag show is instructional, not a protest, which appears to make it simpler for beginning and persevering with conversations. All through the day of the flag show, the Youth Defending Youth pro-life group engaged respectfully with events and with protesters who finally dismantled the show and dumped the flags in a pile.
Media protection the day of the occasion was balanced and clear, and it didn’t finish there. Now, two weeks later, the college paper revealed one other article concerning the occasion, indicating that the problem didn’t die with the dismantling of the show.
Writer Sarah Suleman wrote a superb piece on the necessity for open debate, and the unhappy state of affairs when college college students are unwilling to listen to factors of view they disagree with. She asks:
“…after the occasions of the demonstration led by Youth Defending Youth on Nov. 16, my thoughts is left overridden with questions surprisingly unrelated to abortion: When did we cease listening to at least one one other? And when did we turn into so cemented in our opinions that we let the dialog die? …I ponder if the all-consuming worry of permitting hate at college campuses has someway triggered an identical hate to develop inside ourselves as an alternative: a deeply burning hate in the direction of opinions that differ from our personal.
She concludes with a name to do higher. That is an encouraging name for minority teams who really feel shut out of debates for failing to comply with the lure of in style opinion:
“We now have to respectfully maintain the dialogue alive — irrespective of if we uncover a solution or not.”
