What has been a controversial topic, even in recent Presidential Debates was the center of controversy on the WKU campus today.
A group called Created Equal displayed large abortion and prenatal images.
Creators say they did it to spark awareness among students.
We want to warn you, some of these images may be considered graphic.
"Many are outraged but were not outraged by photos of lynch mobs."
Those are the words of Executive Director of Created Equal, Mike Harrington who travels to at least 30 college campuses a year because he believes students need to see the injustice of abortion to understand it.
"It stimulates the dialogue, it's the starting point because we have facts, these photos don't lie. They are the truth about what happens 3200 times a day in America,"says Harrington.
While some saw the display as eye-opening
"The display does what it intends to do which is to show you a reality and see how does it make you feel and if it makes you feel troubled our grossed out that's probably a good thing"
Others agree to disagree.
"I wish they would have a better stance than just bashing the people that do it,"says a student at WKU.
"I don't think throwing mutilated babies up in people's faces is very effective,"says another student.
Some even got emotional just looking at the images.
"That just took me for a whirlwind and when I saw the pictures compared to a nickle a dime the quarter that is just something that gets the point across,"says Quinna Hogan, a student at WKU.
And one student even began a protest of her own saying the pictures are insensitive.
"There probably are a lot of women on campus who have had abortions and it was a vital decision for their health or their well being or their life and I don't think it's fair to sit out here and almost taunt them,"says Briana Phillips, a student at WKU.
And she thinks they're also inaccurate.
"Some of the pictures don't even make sense they have pulled these images from very traumatic abortions that women had to have to save their lives."
While it creates controversy Harrington says the project is important for the future of America.
"WKU campus like all colleges represent our future decision makers and leaders."
The goal was to spark debate but others believe it was too graphic for homecoming week.
