well, maybe because there are about 1.4 million abortions per year in the U.S. So that means more fetuses die in late-term terminations than were killed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Every year. But, as I said before, I'm not against abortion. I could never be a party to one, but I wouldn't try to make it illegal for people that can. World is better off without the children of people that will kill their own offspring. Too crowded already. But for those that want to fight it, I think the numbers involved here are sufficient to justify showing people these photos. And the majority of late-term abortions are elective, and have nothing to do with rape, fetal deformity or life threatening consequences to the mother. Check out the testimony from the senate hearings. The "mental health" provision makes dumping an unwanted, healthy kid fairly easy. Typically, it is teenagers who get late term abortions. Kids that have put off telling anybody for as long as they can. Jo: Do some research on this. The pro-abortion crowd disseminates the bulk of the bogus propaganda.

Well some thoughts on the matter of late term abortions and pics. 1. It doesn't matter whether the number is 1.5% of whatever the actual number is (like 1.5% of 100 ? or of 150,000?) - it doesn't really tell us much. It doesn't matter if it's just one baby - it's still horrific. Like, the site likens the destruction to the holocaust. Would Hitler and his Nazis have been less repulsive if they'd gassed a few Jews instead of thousands? The few still matter. 2. Having said that- I believe that very few people would use late term abortion as a method of controlling family size. There are too many physical and mental risks with it. I doubt that any doctors would do that to a healthy foetus. Once a pregnancy is late term I think the woman would be counselled to go ahead and have the baby and adopt it out- because by 20 weeks, going through the abortion would be akin to childbirth - more traumatic and risky if anything. 3. I have heard that many of the pics of late term abortions that are shown to incite opposition to abortion- are actually of foetuses who died in utero. That is- they were already deceased or so terribly deformed that they wouldn't survive birth. 4. I agree, however, that a baby is a baby even at 8 weeks - by then the little ones are responsive to stimuli like light and touch and music. 5. I am a pro-lifer. I don't need to see graphic pics to value the lives we create.

Well, that's the one that garners the most support amongst fence sitters on the abortion issue. It's all public relations, something that all people use to varying degrees of success. How strong would their point be if Pro-Lifers added disclaimers to their positions such as "we're against Late-term abortions, but, to be fair, 88% of them occur during the first 13 weeks, which according to polls is less disagreeable with many people"?

For the same reason that all of the anti-smoking videos and anti-drug videos that they show you in school take the worst possible cases, instead of what the normal smoker goes through. They want to take the worst possible cases to prove their point, even if it means being dishonest. At least most of the **** they show you in the anti-smoking videos is true though, and not photo shopped.. unlike pro-life BS. I wonder how much they'd like it if I bombarded them with pictures of women who have died gory and painful deaths from illegal abortions...

Because just the thought of killing a baby that can survive outside of the womb (up until the time just before delivery) is disgusting and immoral. Most pro-abortion advocates just want to have abortion available 24/7 and no consequences. That's the goal and it's had a devastating effect on this country over the past 30+ years. We have to "allow" illegal immigrants into the country due to the 30 million people that have been aborted since Roe vs. Wade to augment the work force. Who knows? We may have aborted a good presidential candidate instead of being stuck with these idiots. To answer your question, a little murder is still murder.

Well, if they showed photos of abortions performed before the 8th week, they wouldn't get as many people on their side, would they? It's more persuasive than the truth, even the Nazis knew this. Not to say that it makes late-term abortion any less sickening, but it doesn't tell the whole story.

The 8 week old looks like a human baby to me, what is the difference if you are one minute old or 100 years old, don't you have the right to live? If you or others do not want a baby get yourself fixed, don't kill someone else. Murdering your own children is something I cannot comprehend, it is so heartless and inhumane.

Do-it-yourself-abortion? Why is Christy Freeman, the Maryland woman being charged with murder?
I think you will find that even those who do believe in freedom of choice and abortion, do not believe in late term abortion. Many feel that if the fetus is viable and can survive outside the womb then it is murder. If the politicians would stop playing their games long enough I don't think...

Arizona's new ruling on Abortion?

Would you condone abortion in this case?
In this case, an abortion was necessary. That girl could not have carried twins to term even if she had wanted to: all three would have died. It was the Church's loss, really. For excommunicating everyone involved, even though this was a life-saving procedure, a lot of people were outraged...
