A young woman, perhaps 16 or 17, noticed our signs as we prayed in front of the abortion “clinic.” “I could never have an abortion,” she said. “It would be like killing one of us.”

Justin Bieber is only 17 and not yet brainwashed by the entertainment world.  He says he is against abortion because “It’s like killing a baby.”

So simple. So obvious.

Grandparents rejoice when they hear a grandchild is “in the oven.”   Friends celebrate with a baby shower. Some choose to welcome. Some choose to kill.

You can watch The Learning Channel and see babies being born, often with pain, sometimes by Cesarean section, sometimes with cords around their necks. You can watch “ER” and behold raw, bloody trauma being treated and fixed, or not fixed, as occasionally happens. You can see on National Geographic the tiger eat the impala, or the hyena tear at a zebra foal. You can see the horror of natural disasters and ethnic cleansing and utter destitution.

But have you ever seen an abortion on TV? Of course not.  Every other kind of violence can be shown.   Why do people who approve of abortion object to letting abortion be seen for what it is? Because then it is too obvious that it is killing “one of us.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, “Like a boil that can never be cured as long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured.”

Injustice needs to be exposed. When the TV cameras of America showed our black brothers and sisters being attacked with dogs and fire hoses, people understood the evil of racism in a way that words alone could not convey.

The word abortion has lost practically all its meaning. Not even the most vivid words can adequately convey the reality of this act of violence. Abortion is sugar-coated by rhetoric that hides its gruesome nature. What the pro-life person has in mind when he speaks about abortion and what the average American has in mind when he hears the word are two very different things.

The babe in the womb is indeed one of us.   See here:

See for yourself what abortion does to a baby. Why the media cover-up of this crime? You’ll see.

The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.  — Mother Teresa
