The Pro-Life Movement and Graphic Abortion Pictures

There is controversy as to whether or not pro-lifers should show graphic abortion pictures. These pictures are hard to look at, but they can be a valuable pro-life tool. Here is some feedback left on the priests for life website by a person who saw graphic abortion pictures.

“Your website has completely changed my views. I, personally, did not believe in abortions, but I felt it should be left up to the woman. Now I have realized that the “glob of tissue” the abortion clinics often talk about is truly a human being. I will pass information about this website along to everyone I know. Thank you so much. You have saved more unborn babies’ lives then you’ll ever know.”

“Wow. I know that these pictures are very graphic, but they certainly have changed my mind. At first, I thought that abortion wasn’t that bad, but now I am totally against it. Those babies did not choose to be born, and are suddenly killed. It is wrong, and I don’t see how anyone could agree to do this, as well as allow it. These pictures are sickening, but should be shown, because they are stronger than words, and show what is really going on every day.”

*****

“I have been a pro-choice believer my entire life until someone shared your web-site with me. I was first shocked then sickened by what I saw. God, how could I have been so misguided my entire life? I actually believed it was not a baby. I actually believed a first trimester abortion was fine. Boy did you open my eyes. I believe that God worked with me today to show me the right way. I have often wondered if I was wrong but always dismissed those thoughts until I saw these photographs. Several of my pro-life friends told me to pray for help in seeing how wrong abortion is. I have prayed but with yours and God’s help I found this site and now I see. I am 30 years old and a mother of two children. I always thought this was a woman’s issue and never considered anything but the choice. Now I see it for what it is…just plain wrong. Thank you so much for this site. You have reached at least one person.”

“Thank you for making those graphics available. I used to think that I supported abortions, but after seeing those pics, I recognize what a fool I have been. I’ll be praying that you get the message out there.”

“Hi! I saw your web page about abortions. Before I saw it, I believed that women had the choice to have a baby or not, I would never do this but I still believed this. I am so upset about the images I saw today. I have a 2 year old daughter myself and my mother is 24 weeks pregnant. When I saw the picture of the 24 week old aborted fetus I was in shock. I thank you for having this page and more people need to see things like this!!”

*****

“Up until now I’ve been indecisive on the subject of abortion, unable to decide if a foetus could be considered a person, a living thing. After seeing these images I can see that they are living and that they are living people with little souls and I am now against this horrific procedure.”

“I’m 25, white…from an middle class family in NY. Before seeing this site I was 100% pro choice…thinking that no one person or group had the right to tell a women what she can or cannot do with her body. However after seeing these photos, I can honestly say I have changed my opinion. If more people saw the end result of their decisions, I truly believe they would think twice. Quick thing. My fiance is going through pre-mature menopause at the age of 26, and is therefore unable to bear a child. It sickens me at the number of dead, discarded children sitting on this web site alone. To me, this is just a sampling of millions of healthy children that could have been adopted by truly loving people like my fiance. Please keep this site going…. Thank you.

*****

” I was totally pro-choice before seeing these horrifying pictures and reading the different stories. These are CHILDREN, they are people! I can’t understand why people are doing this. I sit here and question what has happened for this to be a legal practice in our wonderful nation, and around the world. How can people be so accepting and tolerant of this? I do not condone pro-life activist murdering the doctors who perform the abortions or setting off bombs in these clinics; two wrongs do not make a right. But I seriously do not understand how this can be taking place day in and day out. Can it ever be put to a stop? I mean, even if it is made an illegal practice, will it just go back to being performed in nasty hotel rooms and dark alleys? Why can’t these mothers understand that they don’t have to do this? Why don’t they understand that even if they don’t want the child, then there is a loving, deserving family out there who would go to all lengths to adopt!

“I had always been “Pro Choice” until I stumbled upon your website. I feel so ashamed, I never really knew. Thank you”

*****

“I just wanted to let you know how this website has changed me. My whole life I have been a “good” Catholic. The only issue I really had with the Church was that I didn’t really agree with her views on abortion. I never really viewed abortion as a “church” or “government” issue. I believed until recently in the right of a woman to choose. I believe that God has been trying to get my attention lately on this issue. I don’t know what made me visit your site. I am thankful that I did. The visit has changed my view and has changed me forever. Thank you Father for your hard work and know that you are making a difference. God Bless You. And I can now say I am praying for an end to abortion. It is our duty as Catholics to defend all of God’s people…..Born and unborn.

“I just want to say, That your site has turned my thinking around. I wanted a abortion because I already have 4 children and it will be very hard to have another, but after I saw the pictures of Malachi and there is NO WAY I could do this to my baby. Thank you so very much for caring about these babies because if it wasn’t for you and your site I would probably be getting an abortion this week. I am 11 weeks pregnant and I am still struggling with this but I now know I cannot murder my child!”

“I am a Buddhist from Dallas, TX and I have always been an ardent supporter of a women’s right of choice in matters of pregnancy, although, I have not supported abortion as it is against my principals. Also, I have not delved into the gruesome details of abortion, as it was not “my issue”. In recent times as the near-term and partial-birth abortion debate is getting more mass media coverage, it rekindled my interest to find what the debate is all about. What I found changed my views of abortion forever! This abortion has got nothing to do with women’s rights. It has got everything to do with an unborn child’s right to live! For me, it plain and simple, and it fits my definition of murder, regardless of what the current law says about it. You are absolutely right, words can never do justice to this heinous, unspeakable, horrendous and most cruel crime perpetrated upon a yet to be born human being.”

*****

“Thank you!!! I have just gotten pregnant for the second time out of wedlock. I am saved but was thinking about abortion because I didn’t think I could handle it. This site is a LIFE SAVER. If more people could actually SEE and not just hear about it, abortions would decrease greatly if not cease! I’m going to believe that God can bring me through this pregnancy because HE will never leave me nor forsake me.”

“I am a 24 year old woman from Mobile, AL, and I want to thank you for the work you all do to help the fight against murdering innocent children. I was able to use your pictures to persuade my confused sister not to kill her unborn baby. I have legal custody of the baby girl now, but I will do the best I can to let her know how brave her mother is for going through with her life. I hope that my sister looks at her and realizes she made the right choice, & will one day be able to take good care of her on her own, but either way I know she made the best decision, and I can thank you all for helping me to help her. I will continue to believe that people are going to one day see the horror and discover the realities of abortion. A child should never be murdered, and yet we’ve made it legal. Thank you for working against that. You are so wonderful in my eyes.”

******

“I thought that you would like to know that you have changed the mind of at least one person with your web site, me. Although I have never had an abortion myself, I have always thought that it should be a woman’s right to do what she wanted to her body. Today I stand corrected. Thank you for showing me the truth. I will pray for success in your fight against abortion, and for all the children who die every day. Thank you and God Bless.”

“A few weeks ago I received a phone call where a lady was taking a survey asking if I was pro-choice, pro-life, or in between. I answered somewhere in between. If I had only known what I was saying. I am a young mother of two. I had my first at 19 and my second at 22. With my first I wasn’t married yet, and actually considered aborting him. Something inside my stomach just wouldn’t let me, I don’t know why because at that time I was pro-choice. After viewing your site I am no longer undecided on any of it. I am saddened. I am thankful I took responsibility because my children have made me who I am. They are beautiful. I am sorry I have been naive in the past. I am pro-life for the future. Your web-site is a good thing.”

“Oh my goodness, when i looked at your website, of the precious little babies that have been murdered, i cried so hard. I’m still crying. To think that I had the thought actually cross my mind of getting an abortion. I just had a baby 4 months ago by emergency c section, and pregnant again. Seeing those pictures really changed my mind. I’m only 18 and having a hard time dealing with everything, but those pictures helped me decide…. Thank You SOOOOOOOOOO much. I know the choice for my little peanut is life. Thank you again. Thank you from the depths of my heart, ps…I’ve included a picture of my little boy if anyone would like to see him.”

******

“OH MY GOSH. I just read your entire web page. OH MY GOSH is all I can really say out loud. You need to get this message through to as MANY people as you possibly can. I have seen articles and read about abortions before-but I still felt like it was the woman’s decision to deside of whether or not she wanted to give birth to a baby. My mind was changed TODAY because of your web site. I can’t tell you how much you touched me and turned me around in a full circle. Thank you. I will definitely share this message with other women I know.”

******

“I just wanted to say that I had accidentally viewed your web site. Let me tell you that I had once strongly believed in pro-choice, but after reviewing this website which had brought me to tears for all those babies, I am all for Pro-Life. I just recently found out that I am 5wks and 4days pregnant this is my third pregnancy and my second child. I can not imagine me doing this to my baby. Don’t get me wrong I had an abortion about 2yrs. ago and that was the hardest decision I had to make. I did not want to do it but I really had no choice. I cried and mourned for my child for a long time and still do as I tell my story. I just want you to know that I will try to recommend people to view the website.”

******

“Up until I visited this site I had been pro-choice. I thought that I would do an Internet search to see exactly what an abortion entails. After seeing the images on your site, there was no decision to be made. I figured that whatever hardships having a baby at this time would bring me would be far easier than living with the guilt I knew I would never rid myself of if I was to get an abortion. The pictures had such a powerful effect on me. They helped me to be strong and realize that this pregnancy was made possible by God and if it wasn’t meant to be, that was His choice, not mine. I trusted that He has a plan for me and that He wouldn’t give me anything I couldn’t handle. As I sit here typing, my beautiful baby boy is alive and kicking inside me. As I said in the beginning of this letter, I am not sure what brought me back to this site, but viewing the pictures again made me so happy that I did not take that path. It only re-affirmed my decision and also made me realize the value of your site. It has saved me a lifetime of therapists, anti-depressants, and overwhelming guilt. THANK YOU.”

“Hello, I visited you site today. My college professor assigned me the topic of abortion for my final exam paper and I was skeptical about writing on such a touchy topic, I am the mother of two beautiful children, both of who were unplanned and came at the wrong time. When I found out I was pregnant for the second time I was upset and even thought about abortion. Someone dear to me showed me your website and I cried for an hour. To this day I still get tearful when I look at my four month old son. I almost made the worst decision of my life. I wish everyone could see these pictures and hopefully change lives. I have talked to several people who are currently pregnant and few even thought about abortion, I asked them if they had seen pictures and they said no and I showed them, they had the same reaction to me. I do not think that thought will ever come up in my mind again. The gift of a child is so precious, if one doesn’t want the child themselves they should consider adoption not abortion. There are so many out there who want children and can not have them. I am going to provide a link if it is approved by you for people to visit.”

******

“I want to thank you for the pictures . I was all for abortion until I saw them . How any one could do that to a helpless child is beyond me. If I can help in any way please feel free to e-mail me and let me know.”

******

“I wanted to relay an anecdote from my own life about how your organization has changed one mind (and that is how we’ll win this battle, one mind at a time). I have a dear friend who is very “pro-choice” and I said: “Do you think there should be any restrictions on abortions?” The answer was no. I happened to have my laptop available and said: “Have you ever seen what an abortion looks like?” The answer was: “No and I don’t believe it’s a baby until at least the 3rd trimester.” I accessed your website and showed her the pictures. She was rightfully and truly horrified about what this REALLY looks like. And, she started to cry. She isn’t “pro-choice” anymore. Thank you again and God Bless you and your organization.”

******

“Today I saw the pic’s on aborted fetuses. I was appalled and disgusted. I’m 8weeks pregnant and thought about having an abortion. NOT ANY MORE!!! I thought that it would be tissue, but I can clearly see a small human being, and could not consider killing my baby… Thank You”

“When I was a bit younger I always thought that I would have an abortion if I didn’t have the money to look after a child. As I’ve got older I started to think that it would be wrong to have an abortion and now I have seen these pictures I know it is wrong. Thank you for opening my eyes. Now I know that even in the early stages of pregnancy there is a child there and not just a collection of cells.”

******

“I considered an abortion when I fell pregnant with my son, I visited your website and was physically sick. Now when I see these images it makes me hug my 8 month old precious baby boy a little bit harder. Please find attached a photo of my son, who without yourselves would not be here.”

******

“A friend of mine recommended me to your site because I told her I was going to have an abortion on this coming Friday. I couldn’t help but to just stare at the innocent babies that were killed. Just a couple of hours ago I was saying to myself “I wish I can just get a sign to whether this is a good idea or not”. I am 3 months pregnant now and I am actually going to go through with this pregnancy. Thank you.”

******

‘”I am a student [in Utah.] I had to choose a topic for a paper, and I chose D&E and Partial Birth abortion. Before finding your website, I believed that these types of abortions were okay to use. However, when I saw the grotesque pictures and read through the various pieces of writing, I was amazed. I now believe that abortion of any kind should be banned, and anyone who completes an abortion has murdered a human being. Thank you for showing me the atrocities of abortion. — JD”

******

“Thank you so much for your website. I am 14 weeks pregnant and my partner wants me to have an abortion. … so I thought about it. I got on the internet trying to see how much it cost and I was lead to your site. I wanted to see what happens and what they look like at 14 weeks. Thanks to your site. I am not going to do it. I already have 4 beautiful girls… But you know what, God does not put more on you than you can handle. I am unable to commit murder. That is like killing my own children at their age. This is a remarkable website. Everyone should see this site before they consider having an abortion. Everyone needs to see this to determine if they are able to live with themselves after doing this.”

******

“Hello, I am a sixteen-year-old female and I just finished looking at the pictures on your site and reading what actually happens during an abortion. Up until five minutes ago, I was extremely pro-choice. I thought things like, “let women make their own decisions about their own bodies” and things along those lines. Because of your site, I realize that abortion is not a choice about a woman’s body…it is the LIFE of a BABY. Never before did I realize how truly horrible and careless abortion really is. Maybe it’s because I’d never seen the pictures, or read the actual descriptions of abortion. Maybe I was too afraid to know the truth. I really don’t know. But within 3 minutes of viewing your website, my face was covered in tears. Those pictures just really hurt to look at. To see an innocent child…dead before it was even born. It hurts me to know that people find this acceptable. Killing your baby just because you don’t want it is beyond irresponsible. How could someone murder an innocent little baby? I thank you so, so much for your wonderful website. I cannot express how grateful I am that you have shown me the truth about abortion. God bless you. Thank you once again. — Katey”

“I never believed in abortion but now that I got pregnant I had to know exactly what an abortion was. After seeing all the pictures on your web site I realized I can’t do that to this little defenseless angel inside me. One wrong won’t be fixed by doing another. I’ll fight for this baby and face the world for it. Hopefully God forgives me for my mistakes. He put this little baby inside me for a reason and I’ll let it be his will. — Lisa”

******

“Thank you. I can’t stop crying and had to stop looking at your website. I have completely changed my views on abortion and now am against it. How is it that I, as a 30 year-old woman never knew what an abortion really looked like? Those innocent tiny bodies are ripped apart? We would be appalled if we treated animals like that but we do it to humans all the time? Why aren’t high school boys and girls (if not younger) made to look at these pictures when in sex ed classes. I know I never saw them until I saw your website. I am absolutely horrified at what it entails and if I had known this, I never would have taken the topic so lightly. I thought it was just like a lump of silly putty until the very end. How stupid am I? But, sadly, I think a lot of people don’t see it as a life when in a mother. I am blessed with two children and until being pregnant with them never knew there was a heart beat so early on or that they are moving from the get-go. Why is this all such a mystery? When I got my first ultrasound I thought “why don’t they tell young girls that it’s a LIFE not just a “fetus”?” By calling it a “fetus” it sounds unimportant. My beautiful daughter is only 5 months, but I will show her the horrors of abortion in the hopes that she will then be scared out of sex until she is married. I can’t imagine never having met my beautiful children due to a selfish decision on my part. I will say my thank you prayers tonight that I was never given a chance to make a horrendous mistake in my youth. Thank you for your website and for simply being honest. I think more people need to look at the reality. — Kim, PA”

“Thank you so much. I am a 16 year old girl. I am 24 weeks pregnant and at 6 weeks I had considered abortion when the father of my child passed away very unexpectedly. I didn’t think I could do this all alone so I went online to research abortion and found your web site and before all this happened I was against abortion knowing it was wrong but I thought I had no choice. I found your site and it saved my child’s life. Now I know he is a boy [my baby] thanks you!!!! You have saved at least one life. And I am positive thousands more. I can’t say thank you enough!!!!! — DAC”

“I was looking for pictures of babies in utero as I am pregnant, when I came across your website. I didn’t know whether to look or not, I didn’t know if I could handle it. I’m so glad I did. I’ve gone from pro choice to pro life in a heartbeat. These pictures should be shown in schools and to anyone considering their right to terminate a precious life. Keep up your good work! — BK, Australia”
******

“I have always felt I was definitely pro-life personally, but felt that others should have the right to make their own choices. After being at your website, I am 100% pro-life! No Exceptions! God Bless you all, and God forgive us! — Becky”

******

“I have to say that my whole outlook on abortions has changed after what I just saw. I am in tears and feel horrible because I have friends that have had abortions and some of their outlooks are, for example, ”I am only two months it’s just a ball of blood its not a formed baby.” But after seeing these images I have to show them so they can see how wrong they are! I am so happy to see that you show the truth so many young girls unfortunately do not get to see these pictures when they are sitting in the abortion clinics.. I am 22 yrs old and if I or my friends would have seen these images we would have never even considered or let anyone of our loved ones have an abortion. God bless you on all your time and efforts put into this website and to day you made a difference in my life and now I will try to make a difference in someone’s life. Whenever I hear someone saying they want to have an abortion I will give them this website. — Rose”

******

I have always believed that abortion is the woman’s choice and should be left that way. We all have our own views on what we think is right and wrong and I have always believed in the freedom of choice, after all what we decide to do with our lives we have to live with the consequences. After viewing the photo galleries on your web site how wrong could I be. How can anyone justify aborting a child that is capable of living outside the womb let alone one that is 4 – 5 weeks gestation. I don’t shock very easily but what I have seen has brought reality crashing down to me, everyone has the right to live and these unborn babies cannot control their own fate. Websites like yours should be used widely in schools especially in Britain where we have the highest teenage pregnancy statistics in Europe, perhaps if young people could see the shocking facts for themselves they would think twice before having unprotected sex or having sex at all. Another question that springs to mind is if the unborn child has severe disabilities and would have no quality of life, is abortion really the answer? Your web site has most definitely opened my eyes to the ethics of abortion. — Joanne”

    Hello. I just wanted to say, I am completely against abortion. I always have been. But I can not begin to wrap my mind around the huge number of tiny innocents that have been slaughtered since 1973. Seeing these pictures…it’s an unspeakable evil that has been done against these poor babies, and an evil committed against God, because these are His children; I can’t begin to imagine the pain He’s feeling. I will continue to speak up for these little ones; with my very last breath, I will speak up. Abortion is also a personal issue for me. You see, my Mom almost lost me to a miscarriage when I was 8 weeks old; a “doctor” recommended abortion to end my innocent life. But my Mom refused. And God spared both of us. I thank God for that. And I thank God for my Mom, for the faith she had, and still has. Thank you so much for speaking out for these babies. There comes a time when you must stand between the wolf and the lamb; this is most definitely one of those times. God bless y’all, always.
