McCain Syrian Boy

During a speech on the Senate floor, Arizona Senator John McCain used the photo of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy alleged to have drowned while fleeing his home among other refugees, to draw attention to the refugee crisis in the Middle East.

McCain stated:

    “This photo, this photo, which was taken shortly after Aylan’s dead body was washed ashore, has opened the world’s eye to this devastating crisis. Within hours of this photo being posted, people across the world began to share it on social media using a hashtag in Arabic that translates to “humanity washed ashore.” This image has haunted the world….”

In response, Created Equal founder Mark Harrington wrote, “…And I often hear that using abortion victim photos is an ineffective way to persuade people… Hmm.”

Chasing Untitled1

A group put together by Chasing New Jersey, a news broadcast which airs on Fox29 Philly, reveals the impact that showing graphic abortion images has on those never exposed to the truth of what killing babies in the womb looks like.

In the film, young people watch a video of an abortion shown publicly on a jumbotron by the pro-life group, Created Equal, recently in Philadelphia at the Liberty Bell Mall.

The responses are very telling for those who criticize abortion imagery !

Several viewers turn their heads and some gasp.

Others hide their eyes.

One is heard saying, “Wow! Graphic!

Another viewer: “Disturbing!”

Another, “Difficult!”

The host says, “that is as quiet as this room has ever been.”

A women responds, “there’s’ nothing to say, it’s absolutely heartbreaking.”

The group debates whether showing these images and videos in a public venue is good. Some say yes others no – some think it is only a free speech issue – others want it banned.

The over-all effect of what Created Equal did by showing these abortion images can be summarized by this viewer who said, “Regardless of how you feel on the issue, if their goal was to get you to invoke these emotions, then these visual images for the word abortion – then they did a great job. I’m never going to forget that for the rest of my life.”

watch:

The use of abortion victim imagery is debated among pro-life people. However, pro-choicers are scared of it.

carol-costello-CNN portrait-left-teaseThis week, CNN Journalist Carol Costello who anchors the 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET edition of CNN’s “Newsroom” each weekday, asked why women who have abortions aren’t using extreme methods like these to promote abortion?

“Abortion rights activists have told me that such “extremist tactics” have been an effective tool of the anti-abortion side of the debate for decades. If the group, Created Equal, can project bloody, allegedly aborted fetuses on a 10-by-12-foot screen next to Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell to try and prove that abortion is murder, then why shouldn’t women who have abortions use extreme methods to try and prove it’s not,” Costello stated.

Not Alone

Sherry Merfish founder of the Not Alone project, an abortion effort to encourage women to share stories of killing their children without regret, suggested that women telling their abortion story will keep people from thinking about the “proverbial bloody fetus.”

“We’re not saying that every person will make a video, but the ones who do will offer encouragement to other people to tell their story. By telling your story to anyone, you are combating the stigma. You are eradicating stigma as a woman who is open about her life and instructs others to do the same. So that the next time someone says the word ‘abortion,’ the hope is that that person you told won’t think about the proverbial bloody fetus, they instead will think about you: a person who they love and respect and made this decision,” Merfish stated.

While the pro-life community continues to debate using abortion victim images, it would appear that the pro-choice community knows their impact is working, just say’n !

BREAKING: Abortionist beheads baby

Posted in Graphic Images with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 26, 2014 by saynsumthn

News of beheadings from ISIS and even some within America are causing great concern among many people.

But – what about the evil beheadings already occurring inside American abortion clinics?

This…my friends has gone on for many years – behind closed doors – legally – and within feet or miles of Christian churches or Christian people.

Let’s examine our own guilt in this and end the evil of legalized child killing in America !

This first picture is of Baby David killed inside a Texas abortion clinic- you can read about what happened to him here!

Exposing abortion atrocities: Graphic Billboard Raising Eyebrows

Exposing abortion atrocities: Graphic Billboard…, posted with vodpod

Here is my take on showing the aborted child after over 30 years and 50 millions dead babies:

History teaches us that when images are displayed – people are moved. Our culture is image driven- why hide the unborn from them?
Please allow me to make my case:

Anti-slavery: The abolitionists used the “Run-a-way slave ads to prove that slaves were beaten. When a slave ran off, the slave master would post an ad, which gave great details of the markings on the slaves bodies: bullet hole, whip marks, burns, etc. This graphic depiction was later used by the anti-slavery movement to convince others of the horrid treatment of slavery. Anti-slavery leaders sent England’s William Wilberforce slave chains and torture tools. In addition, they had freed slaves show him their marks and take him aboard the slave ships. Wilberforce then begged former slave ship captain ( an author of the song Amazing Grace) John Newton to write his tortured memories of the treacherous middle passage.

Civil Rights: It was when the News Media finally showed the water cannons and police dogs brutally attacking the civil rights marches in Selma – that the public began to change. Once those images hit the air waves, the people began to show compassion and get behind the demonstrators. Not all did, this is true , but many people were moved.

Nazi Holocaust: It is showing the images of the Nazi Holocaust which remind people of the horrors Hitler perpetrated. In fact, after liberating several concentration camps, our government forced the German townspeople to march past the dead bodies so they could see how they had “allowed” genocide to take place, while they lived in peace.
This video shows the Liberation of BUCHENWALD and DACHAU Concentration Camp. Among this footage you see the German Towns people who were ordered to go to the concentration camps after US officials declared Marshall Law upon these regions.
During the Liberation of Dachau you can spot some faces that seem to be well fed. These where German camp guards, after they were picked from the crowd by camp prisoners. There was little mercy for these people as all emotions where thrown at the German Camp Guards

Other: Compassion , Samaritans Purse, outreaches to Haiti – also use graphic images of suffering children to motivate us to action.

I humbly ask you, why is it that the images who get “Censored” are the precious unborn.

Why do we hide the ugly truth of abortion? To what end? More Bloodshed, thus more judgment on America?

We will never fully repent , weep, and be motivated to action – for the beloved unborn children – until we see their devastation and until we are so grieved that we are moved to show it to others.

If a nation can tolerate child killing from abortion, isn’t it about time we looked at child killing for what it really was?

Charles Finney, on slavery , “Still it may be said, that in many churches, this subject cannot be introduced without creating confusion and ill-will. This may be. It has been so upon the subject of temperance, and upon the subject of revivals too. In some churches, neither temperance nor revivals can be introduced without producing dissension. Sabbath-schools, and missionary operations, and everything of the kind have been opposed, and have produced dissensions in many churches. But is this a sufficient reason for excluding these subjects? And where churches have excluded these subjects for fear of contention, have they been blessed with revivals? Every body knows that they have not. But where churches have taken firm ground on these subjects, although individuals and sometimes numbers have opposed, still they have been blessed with revivals. Where any of these subjects are carefully and prayerfully introduced; where they are brought forward with a right spirit, and the true relative importance is attached to each one of them; if in such cases, there are those who will make disturbance and resist, let the blame fall where it ought. There are some individuals, who are themselves disposed to quarrel with this subject, who are always ready to exclaim, “Do not introduce these things into the church, they will create opposition.” And if the minister and praying people feel it their duty to bring the matter forward, they will themselves create a disturbance, and then say, “There, I told you so; now see what your introducing this subject has done; it will tear the church all to pieces.” And while they are themselves doing all they can to create division, they are charging the division upon the subject, and not upon themselves. There are some such people in many of our churches. And neither sabbath-schools, nor missions, nor revivals, nor anti-slavery, nor anything else that honors God or benefits the souls of men, will be carried in the churches, without these careful souls being offended by it…”

The Plight of Afghan Women: A Disturbing Picture

TIME Magazine Defends Use of Graphic Images

Columbus, OH – August 2, 2010 – The August 9, 2010 issue of TIME Magazine defends the use of graphic images in showing the brutality of the Taliban in their treatment of women.

Interestingly, TIME makes a case for children seeing these images as well.

This is part of the magazine’s rationale:

“I’m acutely aware that this image will be seen by children, who will undoubtedly find it distressing. We have consulted with a number of child psychologists about its potential impact. Some think children are so used to seeing violence in the media that the image will have little effect, but others believe that children will find it very scary and distressing – that they will see it, as Dr. Michael Rich, director of the Center on Media and Child Health at Children’s Hospital Boston, said, as “a symbol of bad things that can happen to people.” I showed it to my 2 young sons, 9 and 12, who both immediately felt sorry for Aisha and asked why anyone would have done such harm to her. I apologize to readers who find the image too strong, and I invite you to comment on the image’s impact.”
–Richard Stengel, Managing Editor, TIME Magazine

Could this same case be made for using graphic images to show the abuse of unborn children from abortion?

The pro-life group – Center for Bio-ethical Reform (CBR) argues “Yes” :

TIME, interestingly enough, makes the same case CBR has made for years. Photos of abortion need to be seen to understand the brutality of abortion.
Question: Why does TIME or any other mainstream magazine have a double standard when it comes to showing abortion in their publications?
Answer: Americans are not complicit in, or complacent towards the mangling of women, but they are responsible for millions of abortion deaths. Few Americans will defend the type of injustice visited on Afghan women by the Taliban, but millions of Americans are killing their children and TIME doesn’t want to offend that portion of their readership who support abortion.
Sadly, it is a simple as that.
