AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - An exhibit at Auburn University intended to show what happens in an abortion through the use of graphic images has provided an outlet for students to openly debate the issue.

The 20-by-30-foot tri-fold exhibit from the group Justice for All, which opposes abortion, was presented on the Cater Hall lawn Monday and Tuesday.

Diane Phelps, president of Students for Life, said the exhibit wasn't intended to upset people or to recruit fellow abortion foes.

After seeing the exhibit, seniors Shannon Symuleski and Lauren Bahr made signs and T-shirts supporting a woman's right to abortion and joined abortion advocates on the lawn Tuesday.

Justice for All visits about ten college campuses a year with the same display. AU is the first campus in the state where the group has put up its exhibit.
