No room for discussion with backs turned

The Daily Cal has dueling editorials by Alberto Gonzalez, president of the Berkeley Students for Life, and Alison Ostendorf, president of Berkeley NOW, regarding the recent Genocide Awareness Project display on campus. Ostendorf's editorial is telling because she claims there was no chance for debate because the display featured images of aborted children. She then goes on to list a bunch of things she doesn't know about Berkeley Students for Life including their "full arguments." She also claims there was an "absence of any real space for discussion."

This seems incredibly disingenuous when there were prolife participants readily available to discuss the images and it was pro-choice protesters who were standing in front of the display with their backs turned to the display and the prolifers.
