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…”
