Pictures of aborted babies anger CBS evening news reporter

From pro-life author Randy Alcorn:

“When a pro-life candidate ran television ads showing aborted babies, people were outraged. A CBS Evening News reporter declared the abortion debate had reached a “new low in tastelessness.” Strangely, there was no outrage that babies were being killed… only that someone had the audacity to show they were being killed.”

People are often enraged when encountered with the horror of abortion. This has led some pro-lifers to feel that pages of aborted babies should not be shown to the public. They worry that this will make people more entrenched into their positions because they cannot process the horror of what they are seeing and instead take their anger out on the messenger. However, people are often swayed by the pictures when they see them on the Internet. Read some testimonies here.

One thought on “Pictures of aborted babies anger CBS evening news reporter”

  1. Never understood why so many pro-lifers absolutely refuse to show a picture of an aborted baby. Why not show it? After all, that is the reality of abortion. This is the “choice” people are making on a daily basis—people need to see the horrid and gory result of that “choice.” If a picture speaks a thousand words, imagine what words could be spoken against abortion through a picture. I know you have to consider the woman’s feelings in all of this, but you can’t lose sight of the abortion itself. The women suffer because of the abortion. Abortion, the fact that innocent people are being slaughtered in masses—all of the innocent blood that is shed, is why you should be pro-life in the first place. Because this is wrong and cruel and just demonic in nature. If you truly want to be of help, you won’t sugarcoat reality for them.
