There was no evidence whatsoever that there's any inadequacy in the existing informed consent law. As a matter of fact, I think it's widely understood that NE has a very sound informed consent law in place protecting the citizens....
That's interesting considering abortion proponents are typically opposed to informed consent laws like NE's. For example, here's NARAL's web page on NE's "biased counseling and mandatory delay" law.
Connell, who started Show the Truth's Canadian movement 11 years ago, said she understands why some people find the images offensive, but she thinks they're necessary to get across the reality of the act.
"There are no pretty pictures of abortion," she said. "They're realistic. They show little, decapitated mutilated babies because that's what it is."
I can't understand people who see pictures of aborted babies and instead of getting mad at the fact that the violence that killed those babies is LEGAL they get all bent out of shape at the people holding the signs.
As if out of sight is out of mind. Do these people think this isn't going on? They must have the attitude "As long as I don't have to think about it it doesn't affect me." Ludicrous.Posted by: Sydney M. at July 15, 2010 9:18 AM
That's exactly it Sydney, out of sight out of mind. Even people who call themselves pro-life can fall for that mindset. Part of our job as active pro-lifers is to show people the truth about abortion. That happens in many ways, truth trucks are the most shocking of course and very effective. But we can also make presentations at our churches, wear pro-life t-shirts, respectfully challenge pro-choice friends. Every little bit helps.
I'll never forget finally getting into a conversation with a very liberal friend and she told me, "but abortions went up during the Bush years!!" (Aaaaahhhh, gotta love the lies NARAL spreads) I was able to deny that AND pull up a website from the AGI that showed her they had declined in those years. She was stunned.
Debunking the lies they are told is key to winning them over. In order to debunk those lies, we have to be informed, and my daily JillStanek.com fix goes a long way towards that end!! :)
Spending (cyber) time with all you wonderful pro-lifers is just a beautiful side benefit!Posted by: Peg at July 15, 2010 10:46 AM
