If people really thought about abortion — saw a film of the actual procedure, and the fetus from the womb in all its human form — very few would favor it. I really encourage states to pass informed consent laws — ultrasound photos, beating heart, procedure films — so people truly understand what is involved. Abortion is about the most barbaric thing in so-called civilized nations, and for me demonstrates just how cold many people are and how little human life is valued. When I hear about Nanny Bloomie’s purported concern for human life in proposing gun bans I can’t even laugh he’s such a loathsome hypocrite.
Just try ans show the full process of getting those packaged meats into the display case and most of these LIVs would become vegetarian. Since we became a industrialized society people seem to have no concept of how food is produced.
I was pro abortion for years, whenever the woman wanted it.
One day, I was reading a story on FR and it linked to some pictures of aborted babies (I believe it was regarding a law suit about showing the pictures).
From that day on, I’ve been against abortion except in special, and very narrow, circumstances. I think people do need to see the pictures, and now we have ultra sounds that are like 3-D and you see such detail, I could no longer support a purely elective abortion.
Maybe different pictures work for different people. Some need to be shocked by the results of abortion. Others may need to see the beauty of a baby in utero, using the new technologies.
Anyway, people can change. It’s worth it to keep trying.
