WICHITA, Kan.-- An anti-abortion group displayed oversized images of aborted fetus on the Wichita State University campus.

"It was more eye catching then normal, definitely, the pictures are graphic," said Kristian Jacobson, student. "Although I kind of agree with the message so I don't have too much of a problem with it."

"I personally don't think they need to go so graphic 'cause obviously they've been here before and talked about it person-to-person," said DJ Pabst. "I think it's just more of a visual tactic."

For the last two days, the student organization, Defending Human Value, hosted the anti-abortion group, Justice For All. The group makes periodic visits on campus and brings smaller versions of their exhibit.

On Monday, the group displayed large panels that made their last appearance at WSU back in 2006.

"Pictures show a reality that words cannot," said Rebecca Haschke, coordinator. "Graphic pictures help us know what that reality actually is and it also helps us to stop, think, and be willing to have a conversation."

Some students, including Jacobson, stopped to have conversations with staff members.

"Hopefully it gets more people thinking about it. Again, even if they disagree with me, hopefully, they will form an opinion on it."

The group plans to return in the spring.
