UCLA caves to pro-life group re: graphic display of aborted babies

On March 11 I posted a letter from Center for Bio-Ethical Reform's Exec. Dir. Gregg Cunningham to UCLA representative Pam Cysner.

The title of my post was, "Pro-life group plays hardball with UCLA over graphic display of aborted babies."...

The administration at UCLA had been jerking CBR's student co-sponsors around for a year trying to keep CBR from reserving space for a huge Genocide Awareness Project abortion photo display (example above) at Bruin Plaza.

Read Cunningham's letter for the best example you might ever see of pro-life hardball. He promised lawsuits and mayhem if UCLA did not comply with CBR's constitutional request to assemble for 2 consecutive days.

Well yesterday, Cysner responded to Cunningham. Read her email and smile. Click to enlarge...

So this is how it's done, friends. The other side attempts to intimidate us, often successfully, into playing submissive, peace-love-and-understanding flower people. That's not how it works in the secular pro-abort world.

Congrats to CBR and the truth about abortion.

Looks like from those pictures society needs to promote the morning after pill more, and work to have abortions as early as possible instead of later in the pregnancy.

Cause later in the pregnancy its somehow more immoral to kill the baby? I didn't know having hands and feet was a prerequisite to being a person. So if you contracted some disease that ate away your hands and feet you would then be a non-person right?

There is no other moment in pregnancy other than CONCEPTION where any momentous change occurs that you can say "aha! A new life has been created!" At the moment of conception a genetically unique human now exists...the rest of the pregnancy is just growth...slow and steady growth.

Why is that so hard for you pro-aborts to understand? Its basic biology!!!! Its not like we're explaining something really really hard to grasp.

And as discussed on this very website, early abortions are somehow not "easier" or less dangerous. Women still die from them and suffer greatly while having them. But hey, way to be "pro-woman!"

Settle down Sydney - I'm saying, that is a great response to the graphical displays.

The anti Death Penalty crowd railed for years about how the death penalty was cruel - pulled out the pictures of a guy who had bled right through his ears during an electrocution.

So they came up with a better death penalty (the three drug cocktail).

Same thing with PETA - if being cruel is an issue, make it more humane.

That's what I'm saying - I know this form of shock has a lot of value, but I'm more of a purist. If it is wrong, it is wrong. If the issue though is that it can get messy, well, the proper response would be to just change the methodology.

I'm settled Ex-GOP but you have missed the point entirely. The point isn't that its "inhumane". The point is that abortion takes a human life. What is SO HARD TO GRASP ABOUT THAT?

Posted by: Sydney M. at March 18, 2010 6:21 PM


Certainly that is not the point - I've read debates on here about the "truth trucks" - the point is to shock people into changing their mind. It's like PETA - they do the same thing.

For a purist, Ex-GOP, you're willing to tolerate a lot of abuses in the "health care" bill. I'm under the impression that you are still in favour of Obamacare. I guess your different tolerance level there has to do with the nature of politics, right? Politics is the art of compromise.

Actually, though, I think that Sydney is correct. Everything I've heard from the Center for Bio-ethical Reform emphasizes that the victims of abortion are indeed human beings, people. I recall the pro-abortion commenter Less saying on another thread that he (she) couldn't "see the issue." The Center for Bio-ethical Reform brings the issue out into the open.

Proponents of the abolition of slavery used these methods to depict the horrors of the "middle passage" in the slave trade.
