MIAMI, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center For Bio-Ethical Reform will begin
the aerial towing of huge photo billboards bearing the images of aborted
unborn children over beaches in South Florida. The billboards will measure
thirty feet tall and one hundred feet long and will also appear over beaches
in several other regions of the country between Memorial Day weekend and the
Labor Day holiday period.
The purpose of this project is to reframe the abortion debate from a
question of "choice" to a forced consideration of what is being chosen.
Instead of merely expressing the opinion that abortion is an indefensible act
of violence which kills a baby, our aerial photos will prove the facts which
compel that conclusion among people of conscience. This and an expending
campaign of related projects are designed to make abortion impossible to
ignore or trivialize.
The long history of social reform teaches that radical evil is most
effectively overcome by activists using horrifying images to dramatize
injustice which is being ignored by the culture. Societies which are complicit
or complacent regarding injustice are typically in deep denial about their own
culpability. These images make it far more difficult for America to pretend
that the unborn baby is a "blob of tissue" or that abortion is the lesser of
Because the effect of viewing these photos is likely to be emotional
trauma, parental discretion is advised. Although we would not display these
images at an elementary school or daycare center, etc., children see
disturbing pictures every time they are pushed in shopping carts through the
checkout stands at supermarkets, past color photos of airliners exploding into
skyscrapers, etc., on the covers of news magazines. And the same exposure is
repeated endlessly with front page newspaper photos of Israelis and
Palestinians butchering one another. etc. If it is appropriate for news
organizations to publish and broadcast shocking images, we claim that same
First Amendment right. Our pictures save unborn children and upset born
children. Critics who care more about the feelings of born children than the
lives of unborn children aren't pro-life, they are pro-feelings.
