Kara Veltman (Dec. 6 letter to the editor) says the abortion posters are in poor taste. Well, did you stop to consider what the end product of an abortion procedure looks like - dismembered parts of what was a living human being now in pieces in a tray?
Was it in poor taste to show pictures of what the Nazis did to six million Jews?
Was it in poor taste to show pictures of how slaves were treated? (It ended slavery once people realized the inhumanity of it.)
Is it in poor taste to show what happens in car accidents caused by distracted driving or driving under the influence of a narcotic or alcohol? Sometimes, these drivers are required to watch arriving injured in an emergency ward, a wake-up call.
If you don't want to face the horror of what happens to nearly 100,000 potential Canadian citizens each year, and therefore think about whether this is right or not, that is your choice. But maybe if you stood in the operating room of an abortion clinic and saw pieces of human being pulled, one by one, out of a woman's womb, you might consider the posters tame in comparison. You would come out of that experience unable to deny the horror of it, even if you still defend abortion as a "right." You'll simply be more knowledgeable about the horror you're defending. And wouldn't it be better for you to know what you're sanctioning?
Three-quarters of abortion's victims are female - half the babies and all of the mothers, and those who favour abortion should be aware of what goes on with what they support. And which is worse for a child: to know what an aborted baby looks like . . . or to undergo an abortion? Perhaps the latter won't happen if they know of the former, because they'll exercise the right to choose . . . to abstain.
