Naomi Wolf On Pictures of Aborted Babies

While most pro-choice activists deny that pictures of aborted babies are real, one pro-choice feminist admits that they are and speaks out against the hypocrisy of pro-choicers  who want to hide them:

she is referring to pictures like this one

“So what will it be: Wanted fetuses are charming, complex, REM-dreaming little beings whose profile on the sonogram looks just like Daddy, but unwanted ones are mere ‘uterine material’? How can we charge that it is vile and repulsive for pro-lifers to brandish vile and repulsive images if the images are real? To insist that the truth is in poor taste is the very height of hypocrisy. Besides, if these images are often the facts of the matter, and if we then claim that it is offensive for pro-choice women to be confronted by them, then we are making the judgment that women are too inherently weak to face a truth about which they have to make a grave decision. This view of women is unworthy of feminism.”

Naomi Wolf,  feminist author and advocate of legal abortion, in “Our Bodies, Our Souls”, The New Republic, 10/15/1995
