Are some photos of abortion victims too gory?

Aborted baby's handMonica Miller, PhD, Director of Citizens for a Pro-life Society, has sparked conversation recently within pro-life activist circles, asking us to reevaluate which photos of abortion victims we display in their necessary role of helping end legalized abortion.

Miller is one of the few pro-lifers who has actually retrieved aborted babies from the trash and photographed their remains.

Many of Miller’s thoughts on this subject are taken from her September 2013 New Oxford Review article, available for $1.50 or by going CPL’s homepage. This post highlights some of Miller’s points with the goal to prompt discussion and new thinking on this important topic.

Be sure to take the poll at the end of this post.

1)  “Graphic Images” or “Abortion Victim Photos”?

You may or may not have noticed that I’ve taken this first recommendation of Miller’s to heart. I now always use the term “abortion victim photos” or “photos of abortion victims.” I’ve abandoned “graphic abortion photos.”

Per Miller:

Pro-life news brief 1-25-13

  • The Pope has tweeted support for the March for Life.
  • Gerard Bradley discusses the paradox of Personhood and how the Supreme Court’s refusal to address the most foundational question could resurface:

    Roe’s shaky edifice is built on a studied and stubborn refusal to address the foundational question about who the law is for. This reticence is all the more remarkable because none of the seven justices in Roe’s majority seems to have believed that the unborn really are persons. They reckoned nonetheless that the constitutional law they produced could not be grounded in any answer — theirs, yours, mine — to that philosophical question. Their reticence was supposed to credential the Court’s judgment as somehow uniquely objective and thus supremely authoritative.

March for Life founder passes away

Last night came sad news that the 88-year-old founder of the March for Life, Nellie Gray, had passed away.

Breaking: Planned Parenthood throws in $1 million towel on Michigan mega-abortion clinic

UPDATE 6:45p: More from the Oakland Press:

Planned Parenthood has scrapped plans to open a clinic in Auburn Hills, settled a related lawsuit and put the building up for sale.

Planned Parenthood Mid and South Michigan CEO Lori Lamerand said the organization met its goal of having a presence in Oakland County in April when it opened a different health center in Ferndale….

Lamerand, who signed the amendment, said in an emailed statement that it was not a good use of donors’ resources to spend money on “frivolous litigation” rather than focus on meeting the health care needs of people in Oakland County….

The building on Opdyke is listed on the website of Jones Lang LaSalle, a firm that specializes in real estate services and investment management. The asking price is more than $1.1 million, but the building also could be leased, with the annual rent listed as negotiable.

9:45a: Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan has given up on its underhanded attempt to open a 17,050 square foot mega-abortion clinic in Auburn Hills, Michigan, a huge pro-life victory.

A suffering

I have a hard time explaining, even to myself, the near constant angst I feel due to abortion. I try to remember what a normal life was like, before I was gripped by the mass slaughter of little babies. I try to imagine living a normal life again. But these days I think normal people […]

Operation Sacred Soil

New organization will help block pro-choice speakers from Catholic facilities and functions You may not have noticed, but since May 17, 2009, no Catholic organization has dared invite President Barack Obama to speak. This is because none want to be a Notre Dame II, the university that paid a high price in battered PR and […]

New footage: pro-abort and gay militants protest in the gutter at Scheidler tribute

Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society has just posted footage from inside the pro-abort and gay protest of the pro-life tribute on April 2 to Joe Scheidler on April 2. The 1st 6 minutes are of their side and the last 3 of ours. You’ll see quite a difference. Warning: vulgarity, including the […]

In August, police made the gruesome discovery of 35 late-term aborted babies in a freezer at abortionist Steven Brigham’s (pictured right, speaking with one of his attorneys) Elkton, MD, mill.
