Pro-life students are taking issue with an atheist group at the University of North Georgia after they gave out fetus and sperm-shaped cookies at a recent pro-abortion rally held on campus.
The display, set up by the Skeptics Society last week, included cookies in the shape of babies in early stages of development. Signs were posted stating "Abortion should remain legal because..." which encouraged passerbys to fill in their reasons.
Some of the reasons students wrote included "it's constitutionally protected" and "a woman controls her own body." Another person wrote, "my v-- is too pretty to let a fetus crawl out."
In response, UNG Students for Life posted pictures of the display to their Facebook page , saying the broken cookies sadly resemble what dismemberment abortions look like.
"Students from the Skeptics Society baked baby and sperm cookies, so that students could kill the babies as they ate them," Students for Life's president Carly McCurry said in a statement.
McCurry added that members of pro-abortion group engaged in "sick and disturbing practices which shocked the University and community at large."
Georgia Right to Life representatives called the pro-abortion protest "one of the most disturbing events they had ever attended."
"One professor even yelled at me to leave and checked my permits, while the Skeptics Society was openly blaring loud rap music which discussed holding women down and raping them," McCurry said.
"What this cookie does not show is the screaming baby, trying to avoid the deadly sopher slip--a sad reality displayed through ultrasound abortions," the UNG Students for Life group wrote. "I am sure that most members of the Skeptics Society abhor this kind of sick humor. However, this is a great depiction of the black heart that exists in the pro-abortion movement."
CBN News also spoke with Lauren Melendez Clickner, founder of the Students for Life at UNG.
"Hopefully students here will start thinking about what it is they believe about abortion," Clickner said, adding that she thinks the Skeptics Society probably didn't think the display would be a big deal.
"I don't think they understand the gravity of what they're doing and how hurtful it is to the community," she said. "I see a lot of apathy in college students around the issue. Hopefully they'll start thinking more about it."
Clickner hopes students will address the pro-life and pro-choice battle and educate themselves on abortion practices.
"I'm not a college student anymore, but what I realized during that time was that I couldn't be apathetic anymore," she said. "The pro-life movement is really important on college campuses because there is a lot going on, and they don't really understand what it is."
The Skeptics Society has not responded to CBN News' request for a comment.
