Planned Parenthood questions the accuracy of the pictures. Its president says the ads are blatant intimidation.
"It’s intended to make women feel less than equal, less than capable of making their own decisions about their life and family. It’s directed toward horrifying." says Barry Chase, president of Planned Parenthood in Memphis.
Well actually Planned Parenthood wants babies in the womb to be seen as less than equal – to not even be human at all. Abortion supporters always feel threatened by the reality of what they endorse. NARAL called the 3D ultrasound a "weapon" and PP in this case call pictures "blatant intimidation." Now it does make you wonder what pictures they would consider to be accurate? Obviously it can’t be pictures of actual babies torn apart in the name of choice. Accurate pictures for them would have to de-emphasize their humanity and be the pictorial equivalent of a product of conception or a tissue mass. Something very amorphous that you can see as a choice instead of as a person. A Picasso-like surreal picture that invokes zero sympathy would have to do. An out of focus photo as blurry as the words they hide behind. It would have to be a picture that invokes the idea of parasite, a term they like to use. Something that invokes the though of having something inside you like what happened after a face-hugger in the move Alien/Aliens got hold of you.
One thing is that Planned Parenthood can’t really come up with a photo to plaster on trucks to tour the country to support abortion. They can’t use ultrasound pictures and of course can’t show any part of the reality of abortion. Abortion supporters have always hid behind slogans and buzz words shifting the debate to that of choice, but not of what the choice entails. Along with Jack Nicholson they say "You can’t handle the truth."
Obfuscation is part and parcel of the culture of death. We are now seeing the whole thing playing out once again when it comes to the embryonic stem-cell research. Once again we get promises that don’t focus on the details. No mention of what is entailed. Whether it is Constitutional amendments purporting to ban cloning by redefining what cloning is or touting a made up statistics on back alley abortions, facts have never been friends of the culture of death. Though this is a positive thing that they must still lie to get support. That people would not support for the most part if they were actually honest about what they support.
