Have They No Shame?

The pro-choice crowd always goes ballistic when pro-lifers publically show the graphic images of abortion.  And that is certainly understandable.  After all, genocide is more palatable when no one but the killer sees it.

Now, in their fight for secrecy, abortion apologists are saying that we should not be allowed to show these pictures in the public because they may inflict emotional trauma on women. 

Like I said many times before, the gall and hypocrisy of these people has no limits.

Let’s make one thing clear.  The only women who might be emotionally damaged by seeing these images are those who have had abortions.  After all, women who have not had abortions have no reason to be traumatized by them.  In other words, it is abortion that causes the damage not the pictures of abortion.  If that were not the case, the effect of the graphic images would be the same on women who’ve had abortions and those who haven’t.  But that is not what happens.

When abortion apologists say that women who’ve had abortions would not be traumatized if they didn’t actually see what they had done, it is just more evidence of the paternalistic attitude these people have toward women.  The fact is that the abortion industry survives only because it will go to absolutely any lengths to keep its customers and the public in the dark.   

Now if that is not true, here is a way to resolve this whole problem.  If the abortion industry is so concerned about post-aborted women being traumatized by seeing these images, why don’t they show them to their customers before they do the abortion?  That way, the women who might be traumatized could make another “choice” and no woman would ever again be able to claim that she didn’t know what she was doing.

Of course, that’s the very reason this will never happen.  Abortion profiteers know that many, if not most, of their customers would fly out the door if they saw beforehand what abortion really is.  That’s why they would rather them not get that sort of information until after the abortion is over and the money is in the bank.        

The bottom line is, the pro-choice gang has inflicted a staggering emotional trauma on American women, and now they are trying to blame it on the people who tried to prevent the abortions in the first place.

Decisions In The Dark

In recent years, organizations like the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, Pro-Life Action League, Justice for All, Missionaries to the Preborn and others have been displaying graphic images of abortion in public places. Their goal is to show the American people exactly what this holocaust is about.

Of course, whenever they do this the pro-choice gang goes ballistic. After all, when people commit crimes against humanity it is natural that they would prefer to operate in the shadows. Abortion defenders hate the graphic images of abortion for the same reason they panic over technology like 4-D and color ultrasound. Both expose realities the abortion lobby needs to keep hidden. Ultrasound transforms the pro-life argument that the unborn are living human beings from a belief into an observable fact. The graphic photos prove that abortion is the brutal murder of those children.

Until now, the abortion lobby's effort to stop this public exposure campaign often centers around the claim that the pictures are phony. Fortunately, that lie has been a colossal flop. The public may not like being forced to see these graphic images, but they have not been tricked into believing that the pro-life movement sits around and fabricates them.

So now, our enemy is rolling out a new strategy. Their latest claim is that the pro-life movement should not be allowed to show these pictures because they traumatize women.

Let's make one thing clear. The only women who may be emotionally damaged by seeing these images are those who have had abortions. Women who have not had abortions have no reason to be traumatized by them. In other words, it is abortion that causes the damage, not the pictures of abortion. If that were not the case, the graphic images would have the same effect on women who have not had abortions as they have on those who have. But no one is claiming that to be true.

When abortion apologists respond that women who've had abortions would not be traumatized if they didn't actually see what they had done, it is evidence of the paternalistic attitude these people have toward women. The fact is legal abortion survives only because the abortion industry does whatever it takes to keep both the public and its customers in the dark.

Now, if that is not true, here is a way to resolve this whole problem. If the abortion industry is so concerned about post-aborted women being traumatized by seeing these images, why don't they show them to their customers before they actually do the abortion? That way, the women who might be traumatized could make another "choice" and no woman would ever again be able to claim that she didn't know what she was doing.

Of course, that's the very reason this will never happen. Abortion profiteers know that many, if not most, of their customers would fly out the door if they saw what abortion really is. Make no mistake, the pro-choice gang is aware of the seesaw relationship between abortion information and abortion rates. They know that for either to go up the other must go down. Once that is recognized, it doesn't take a genius to do the math.

The bottom line is the pro-choice gang has inflicted a crippling emotional trauma on American women. Now they are trying to blame it on the people who tried to prevent the abortions in the first place. Like I've said many times, the gall and hypocrisy of these people is breathtaking.
