Now, the title of the article tends to focus on the ads being inendiary, while abortion in and of itself is incendiary. Terry wants to display pictures of aborted babies in the ad. Of course the pictures are disturbing if the practice is the butchering of human life, so I don’t know what the shock is of these pictures beingincendiary. I’m all for the truth of graphic pictures reflecting what abortion really is. It does what merely decribing an atrocity cannot begin to. However, showing graphic pictures of murdered babies won’t do any more for the pro life cause and win any more hearts and minds in support of life than showing pictures of the Holocaust during Super Bowl commercials will win over white supremists, Jimmy Carter, Ahmadinejad and other Holocaust deniers.
Last year, the commercial of Pam and Tim Tebow was right on. Also, the amount of money Operation Rescue would spend on Terry’s commercial would help out more if given to a pro life ministry, which would help girls thinking of abortion, or who are suffering from post abortion trauma, etc.
