The May 13 edition of The Advocate-Messenger carried a story by Associated Press television writer David Bauder with the headline "Pictures driving public opinion on war in Iraq like never before." The gist of the article was that "stomach turning" photos of Iraqi prisoner abuse caused an outrage by Americans and an investigation by our Military and Congress.
According to the article, having these photos provided "truth in a way that even words don't describe." I certainly do not condone the abuse of prisoners during a time of war. Yet, in our "culture war" in America, why is there not the same "outrage" at the daily slaughter of over 4,000 babies in their mother's womb?
Ultrasound technology provides readily available pictures of the developing child in the womb that should lead us to outrage when they are aborted for convenience and financial profit. There are many "stomach churning" photos of piled up fetuses in abortion clinic dumpsters that provide "truth In a way that even words don't describe."
