Writer calls aborted baby photos the “Achilles Heel” of the pro-abortion movement

From author Gene Burns:

“Even those who do not accept that babies are killed during abortions know that, politically, graphic images of fetuses that bring to mind babies are the Achilles’ heel of attempts to liberalize abortion laws. To the extent that there is discomfort with abortion among the general population, concerns about the relationship of abortion to babies is clearly the reason.”
