Along with the first robins, tulips and term papers, spring at U of T is marked by the arrival of anti-abortion activists. Around this time each year, U of T Students for Life and their off-campus allies break out a set of posters from the U.S. group Genocide Awareness Project and protest on campus.

A graphic anti-abortion display called the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) will be outside Sidney Smith today, but it sparked controversy on campus before a single sign went up.
The display is hosted at U of T by Students for Life. Students for Choice and The Women’s Centre are organizing a counter-protest.
GAP is a project of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform which tours university campuses in North America with images that juxtapose graphic images of bloody fetuses that they claim have been aborted with images of victims of the Holocaust and black lynching victims. It has come to campus before and drawn crowds of dissenters.
