people ask us,
"Why do you show
those sickening, bloody pictures?"
Let us briefly explain our purpopse for displaying
display these photographs because the media has
censored the preborn child from the "abortion
debate.” The American press refuses to show
the American people what these babies look like
who are dying in the womb. We are simply attempting
to bypass that media blackout by going to the
streets and displaying these photographs.
the American people can see for themselves exactly
what a preborn child looks like after he or she
has been in the hands of an abortionist. Most
believe the myth that abortion is just the removal
of some benign tissue. These photographs expose
just how mythical such thinking is.
displaying of these photographs reveals to this
nation that a great holocaust is going on in our
midst, that our indifference towards it must cease,
and that we must act on behalf of those who are
also display these photographs to inform our nation
that it has violated God's Law, and to therefore
call it's people to repentance. Our photographs
stand as a haunting indictment upon our nation.
say our photos are disgusting and hurt our Christian
witness. Our response: have you ever seen a pretty
picture of a murder? Murder is disgusting; abortion
is murder; therefore, our pictures are disgusting.
Beyond that, what hurts our Christian witness
more - being silent while our neighbor is unjustly
killed or exposing the atrocities being committed
against our neighbor (Ephesians 5:11)? We think
a pathetic people we are if we want to tolerate
the oppression of an entire people group, but
then become outraged at someone who displays the
suffering of that people group.
taught, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
If we were in the position of our preborn neighbor
threatened with an unjust death, we would hope
someone would speak up for us, so we speak up
is important to note that the displaying of these
photographs has saved many preborn babies from
death by abortion and have spared many women and
men the grief of having aborted their own son
are many historical precedents for displaying
such photographs. Just as we have seen photographs
of lynched black men, Jewish corpses, and lifeless
Vietnamese children, so we need to look at the
frozen, horrid images of preborn babies torn from
their mother’s wombs.
the end of WW II, our American soldiers marched
the citizens of Germany past the remains of those
who died in the death camps. They marched men,
women, and children past the remains of those
who died in the death camps.
did they do it? Because those citizens all stood
guilty for having tolerated the atrocities that
went on in their midst. So it is in America today,
we all stand guilty for being silent while this
atrocity goes on in our nation.
Brady, the famed Civil War photographer, took
and displayed many photographs of the war dead.
In 1862, the New York Times wrote the following
about Brady’s photographs:
dead of the battlefield come up to us very rarely,
even in dreams. We see the list in the morning
paper at breakfast, but dismiss its recollection
with the coffee. We recognize the battlefield
as reality, but it stands as a remote one. It
is like a funeral next door. It attracts your
attention, but it does not enlist your sympathy.
But it is very different when the hearse stops
at your own door and the corpse is carried over
your own threshold. Mr. Brady has done something
to bring us the terrible reality and earnestness
of the war. If he has not brought bodies and laid
them in our dooryards and along our streets, he
has done something very like it."
our photos have brought you “the terrible
reality and earnestness” of abortion.
prayer is that people would be moved with compassion
for the helpless preborn when they see these photographs
and act to see this bloodshed outlawed. Otherwise,
God will use His sword of justice and bring retribution
upon a nation of people whose hands are covered
something is so horrifying we can’t stand
to look at it, perhaps we shouldn’t be tolerating
