As other commentators have observed, such images should not be suppressed from the public consciousness any more than pictures of famine or the reality of war.

If we cannot face the pictures, how can we conceive of endorsing the reality?

I have no doubt that the publication of the photographs of the victims of Auschwitz and the Burma railway brought home the horrors of such evil catastrophes far more effectively than a million pleading words.

200,000 abortions take place in Britain each year. Why is the pro-choice lobby so desperate to hide the truth about abortion from the public?

~ The UK’s Rev. Joseph Devine, Bishop of Motherwell, commenting on the arrest (and subsequent acquittal) of two Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform members for displaying graphic abortion images on a public sidewalk in front of a Brighton abortion clinic, as quoted by The Scotsman, September 24
