From a friend:
November 27, 2015
My name is __________. I am a 38 year old man. About 4 years ago, I was driving into _________________ when I pulled up behind a small moving truck with a giant photo of an aborted baby printed on the back of the vehicle. At the time I remember being disgusted and angry. I thought, how dare someone insert that obscene image into my mind.
Over the next few years with that image seared into my brain, I began to think about abortion, for the first time in my life. Until then, I had absolutely no opinion on the matter. I thought abortion was just a medical procedure like flicking off a light, a biological process was being halted, really before it even began. It was that photo that shattered that naive belief. I began to realize that abortion wasn’t just flushing a small mass of unrecognizable cells out of the body, it was something a lot more disturbing.
Then more time passed and I learned more about the issue. I learned that most people, know very little about abortion, including fetal development, the number of abortions performed in this country, the stages of pregnancy that these abortions occur and the laws dealing with abortion. I was shocked to learn that there are no legal restrictions on abortion at any time and for any reason.
That picture of the aborted baby, was initially very offensive to me, but now, I am grateful for it. Although it has opened up new darker view of the world, it is at least a more accurate view. I am glad there are people fighting for the voiceless.
