Whats so controversial about a baby? When Heroic Media wanted to place an ad in major newspapers like USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and Chicago Tribune to argue for a ban on late-term abortions, they didnt include any graphic photos of aborted babies, or what abortion mills like Planned Parenthood call products of conception or POCs. Instead, it just shows a child at roughly 20 weeks gestation resting in the hand of an adult, which gives readers some badly-needed context about late-term abortions.
A national pro-life organization is outraged after three major American newspapers rejected a pro-life ad as too controversial.
The Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and the LA Times refused to run an advertisement created by Heroic Media.
Heroic Media Executive Director Joe Young said he was shocked and angered that the media outlets were willing to talk about the issue but were unwilling to show the reality of life at 20 weeks.
I am disturbed that these papers would run article after article promoting the notion that abortion is a victimless act without consequences, Young said. The fact remains, children who are unique individuals never again to be duplicated are being killed in the most violent way imaginable and they feel the excruciating pain of that death.
The newspapers took issue with the image of the baby.
It seems as though it is okay to talk about the issue in general, but when you actually put a face to the discussion, then it becomes controversial, Young said.
Meanwhile, Scott Walker signed a bill in Wisconsin that duplicates the bill in Texas. You know, the one thats so controversial that 62% of Texas voters support it:
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed into law on Friday new abortion restrictions

Um, No. Then it become an irrefutable FACT that Abortion = Legalized Murder.
God forbid anyone face the REALITY about what abortion IS.
The culture of death is alive and well in Sodom and Gomorrah.
Results = too controversial to show
Cause = not too controversial to allow
I saw a recent rant from a pro-infanticide witch. Commenters said that graphic photos of abortion are unnecessary. That you can get the same response from open heart surgery photos, etc. Except cable and PBS television air medical surgery footage all the time.
One procedure saves a life, the other ends it.
There is a big difference and I am not nauseated by medical professionals’ efforts to prolong a life.
That picture just tugs at my heart strings.
Yes, what is wrong with clearly showing what an abortion is?
It’s so easy to talk about issues in the abstract, and say we are “pro choice” or “keep out of my vagina” and all these other slogans. But the reality of what is being done might just open some people’s eyes. This isn’t an abstract debate with bumper sticker slogans. This is real life, and real lives are being terminated.
