I am extremely upset that USM allowed this display. I pay to send my child to this school for an education and not to be assaulted by graphic images thrown in their face. If they want to educate students on abortion, they can lay their information out on tables so that students can seek the information if they choose to and not have it force fed them through massive emotionally upsetting pictures set on the pathway to their classes. USM had to provide counseling to students affected by them. Is that coming out of the tuition money? The majority of students forced to see this display will never even have to make this kind of choice. Why don't you spend your efforts promoting safe sex.
