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.
Same here. I was pro-choice at least, supposing that I was doing women a favor by having such a position.
After learning about exactly what happens, I came to believe the procedure was as much violence against women as it is against the fetus. Or at least it is violence against the spirit of womanhood.
The sad thing is that 150 years ago, at least a few months into a pregnancy, nobody would have needed such evidence as you and I were provided.
So much for society becoming kinder and more enlightened.
