Officials at prestigious Johns Hopkins University on Tuesday reversed a decision banning a pro-life display that had appeared for decades at the school's Spring Fair, after FoxNews.com inquired about the matter.
The display, a fixture at the fair for 30 years, was sponsored by the student group JHU Voice for Life. It shows models of unborn fetuses in various stages of development, but was initially rejected this year on the grounds that it "contains triggering and disturbing images." The decision to reject the display's presence at the fair, which takes place from April 24-26, was made by a student committee in conjunction with faculty advisers.
"We've reviewed your pictures with our advisers and have determined that your display contains triggering and disturbing images and content," read an email the committee sent to JHU Voice for Life.
The student group behind the display immediately charged that the decision was discriminatory against pro-life views, noting that the whole point was to be "disturbing" and get students at the Baltimore school, which specializes in medical training among other disciplines, to think.
