EMU Student Government Makes Funding About-Face

Apr 24, 2013

Eastern Michigan University Student Government has decided to fund the recent campus visit of the traveling "Genocide Awareness Project" exhibit. 

EMU Students for Life had requested about $5,000 to help support the exhibit, which uses graphic photos to equate abortion with genocide. 

The request was originally declined, but after a review of student government procedures for funding student organizations prompted by a lawsuit, EMU Student Government decided to provide the funding. 

The "Genocide Awareness Project" exhibit tours the country visiting college campuses.  It stopped at Eastern April 11th and 12th.
