He said the ability to debate effectively and develop
coping skills while doing so is an important contribu-
tion he said he hopes to instill upon the college stu-

"Faculty members are so (biased) that what passes
for education is actually indoctrination and students
are not acquiring the ability to disagree without being
disagreeable," he said.
Cunningham said it is important to bring the project
to generally liberal communities like Ann Arbor since
it is likely to promote debate among individuals who
see it.
Students for Life spokesman Andrew Shirvell, an
LSA junior, said members of the group saw the Geno-
cide Awareness Project in Washington, D.C., during
the March for Life in January and believed it was an
effective idea. After much discussion they decided to
invite the project to come to Ann Arbor.
"We thought, 'Is this the most effective means for
sparking debate on campus? Will it have a big effect?'
It was controversial and we debated whether it was an
appropriate thing to bring to campus," he said.
Shirvell said, in the end, the group made a near-
unanimous decision that the positive contributions of
the project outweighed its disturbing demeanor.
