Graphic images accompany Polish anti-abortion campaign


Poland stands as a shining example of a country where abortion was once legal but was made illegal (in 1993).  Understandably, though, the battle remains fierce, hence the need to show the reality of abortion, as in the new exhibition.

Campus outreach empowers young couple to choose life: “I’m not going to kill my daughter or son.”

From the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform:

Columbus, OH – Mar. 22, 2011 – “I’m not going to kill my daughter or son,” the Florida International University (FIU) student declared.  He then admitted that just moments before, when he and his pregnant girlfriend had approached CBR’s campus outreach exhibit, they were considering having an abortion.  After viewing the images and encountering CBR volunteer Thama, that option became unthinkable.

The man turned to his girlfriend: “We need to talk.”

Had this young couple not encountered the exhibit, their preborn child could have been scheduled today for an abortion.  CBR’s combination of the graphic truth of abortion and respectful conversation works.

Even students who disagree with CBR’s message can appreciate the effectiveness of our display.  FIU’s student newspaper quoted law student Oren Reich as saying, “I’m pro-choice, but think the exhibit was honest, compelling and non-offensive.  Comparisons to genocide are appropriate considering their beliefs, and gory imagery is appropriate as well, just as I would use it for an anti-war demonstration.”

Check out these articles and opinion pieces from FIU’s university paper:

·         “University visited by controversial exhibit”

·         “Abortion display done in poor taste, misleading”

·         “Abortion display, while graphic, within its rights”

Furious Dr. Hans Keirstead (who advocates wantonly destroying human embryos) uncomfortable in the light of day

Dr. Keirstead is spearheading the first FDA approved human trial of injecting embryonic stem cells into spinal-cord patients.

Hans Keirstead’s main arguments were exactly the ones used by the Nazi doctors who were doing lethal experiments on Jews. Their victims were subhuman, they were destined to die anyway, it was all legal, other countries were doing it and it would benefit all mankind to find cures for dread diseases. He was standing in front of a sign with the covers of the books quoting those exact arguments and the irony was totally lost on him. He just stood there parroting propaganda like a programmed robot.

Keirstead deliberately used dehumanizing rhetoric to refer to the babies, alternately calling them “the products of united sperm and egg cells” and “fertilized eggs.” I told him he was doing what racists do when they dehumanize blacks with the “N” word or anti-Semites when they use the “K” word to slur their Jewish victims. The fertilized egg reference wasn’t even the biologically correct term for embryos at the stage at which he is killing them. When Keirstead tried to deny that he was personally killing them I asserted that he was at least complicit in their killing and he changed the subject. I also reminded him that the term “embryo” describes a stage of life, not a type of life.
