O movimento pró-aborto encontra ameaça em imagens de ecografias  na gravidez postadas no Facebook

 

The pro-abortion movement finds itself once again between a rock and a hard place as technology advancements shed greater light on the humanity of the unborn child.

From the advent of 4-D ultrasounds to Facebook  allowing parents to list their unborn child as a family member on their profiles, technology has only aided the pro-life cause. The latest trend to give voice to the voiceless child in the womb is the Photoshopping of sonogram images onto a picture of the mother’s belly.

 

According to The Daily, “Shelly Kuhn, a family portrait photographer from Tonawanda, N.Y., has Photoshopped clients’ sonogram images onto their maternity shoots several times, and sees it as an artistic portrayal of pregnancy.

“Clients have asked me for it. Women love seeing what their children look like on their belly, they find it intriguing,” Kuhn told The Daily. “I would love to do more of these. But there is a debate over whether it’s morbid and disgusting or beautiful.”

It should come as no surprise that the pro-abortion movement ardently opposes the images. An editor of the Tumblr “STFU Parents” said parents are “doing it because they’re a little obsessive. There’s something inherently narcissistic about taking the time to create this ‘art.’ ”

Andrea White, a client of photographer Shelly Kuhn, says, “These photos are something I really cherish, I thought it was so neat,” said White. “As for the people that think it’s creepy, I can’t say I really understand where they are coming from, but to each their own, I guess.”

The outrage from the pro-abortion movement has little to do with artistic preferences but more to do with what they view as a threat to their political agenda.

Allison Benedikt from Slate wrote that the images “got us thinking about how the more we treat fetuses like people—including them in our family photo shoots, tagging them on our Facebook walls, giving them their own Twitter accounts—the harder it will be to deny that they are people when the next, say, personhood amendment comes up, with legislators and activists arguing that “the unborn child” inside a pregnant woman’s womb should have the same rights as the living among us.”

The headline of the Slate article reads: “Photoshopping a sonogram onto your pregnant stomach isn’t just tacky, it’s bad for women.” When they say “bad for women,” they really just mean bad for the agenda of the pro-abortion movement. It’s as if abortion advocates know life exists long before birth but are making a deliberate effort to hide that inconvenient fact.

At the time Roe vs. Wade was decided in 1973, little was known about life before birth. The child in the womb was largely a mystery. But today, with the ability to watch unborn children on sonogram monitors, see them swim about, make facial expressions and move their little fingers, there is little doubt life is present. There is also considerable evidence that unborn children experience pain even prior to 20 weeks after conception. Sonogram images, including those now used in family portraits, mark a significant milestone in our growing understanding of human life.

However, in many places throughout the country, our laws do not reflect this advanced understanding. For instance, in our nation’s capital, abortion is legal for any reason whatsoever right up until the moment of birth. It’s time to leave the mentality of the 1970’s in the past and for our laws to match what we now know to be true about unborn human life.

Half of Young Adults Don’t Know Planned Parenthood Does Abortions

 Aborto: uma lucrativa atividade que precisa isentar médicos de  responsabilidades criminais para continuar a prosperar 

Metade dos jovens adultos nos EUA não sabem que a Planned Parenthood também faz abortos.  No Brasil, provavelmente este percentual de desconhecimento alcança a quase  100% de jovens e adultos.   A Planned Parenthood é o maior negócio abortista  do mundo  e, sempre que consegue a legalização do aborto em algum país, lá se estabelece com  clínicas particulares de aborto e obtém lucros cada vez maiores com esta prática.  O  maior interesse dela, portanto, é isentar de responsabilidades criminais os médicos que  praticarem o aborto mediante pagamento;  o que,  no Projeto do Novo Código Penal, elaborado por comissão de juristas da confiança do Governo Federal – inconstitucionalmente – está liberando em todas as hipóteses no Brasil, mediante novo artíficio jurídico. Para o público é dito que apenas foram “ampliadas” as hipóteses de aborto no Projeto do Novo Código Penal: mentira, ele já está encaminhado para aprovação no Congresso com artifícios que permitem – na prática – o aborto em qualquer hipótese.

(…) “On December 27, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) released its latest Annual Report for 2009-2010. The report indicates PPFA had a total budget of $1.04 billion and an excess of revenue over expenses of 18.5 million dollars — a net profit. The new report also revealed 46 percent of the total PPFA budget comes from taxpayer dollars in the form of government funding.” (…)

A question in a new survey Students for Life of America released last week should cause alarm for pro-life advocate working against Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business.

In the Students for Life nationally-commissioned poll, young, college-aged adults, were asked a variety of questions on abortion issues. One question queried, “Do you believe it is (ROTATED) mostly true or mostly false that Planned Parenthood clinics offer abortion to pregnant women?”

Alarmingly, despite the fact that Planned Parenthood does more than one-quarter of all abortions in the United States and is one of the leading worldwide abortion businesses, the plurality of respondents – 48% – said they did not know or could not judge whether Planned Parenthood clinics offered abortions to pregnant women. While half had no idea Planned Parenthood is an abortion business, 37 percent understood the true nature of the organization while another 11 percent said Planned Parenthood doesn’t do abortions.

The poll also found pro-life advocates have significantly more work to do to expose Planned Parenthood, its abuses, violations of law, botched abortions, how it misleads women and how it promotes abortions nationally and globally. The poll found 66 percent of those young adults surveyed have a favorable view of Planned Parenthood while 11 percent have an unfavorable view, 14 percent are unsure and three percent had never heard of the abortion giant.

“Respondents’ favorability towards Planned Parenthood was a strong indicator of whether they believed the organization to be an abortion provider. Those who were unfavorable toward Planned Parenthood were much more likely than its supporters to know about their abortion offerings (69%-40%),” the SFLA poll indicated. “However, respondents that identified as pro-choice on both the 2-point and 6-point scales were more inclined than pro-lifers to know about Planned Parenthood’s abortion offerings (45% vs. 40%, 2 pt.; 48% vs. 32%, 6pt). This demonstrates a messaging opportunity to pro-life and conservative young adults, as well as those who straddle the fence on the issue.”

The most recent annual report from Planned Parenthood showed it helped fewer pregnant women with prenatal care and the number of pregnant women it referred for adoptions declined as well.

On December 27, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) released its latest Annual Report for 2009-2010. The report indicates PPFA had a total budget of $1.04 billion and an excess of revenue over expenses of 18.5 million dollars — a net profit. The new report also revealed 46 percent of the total PPFA budget comes from taxpayer dollars in the form of government funding.

The report also broke down the “services” Planned Parenthood offers in addition to abortions. Planned Parenthood has always come under fire from pro-life groups for doing hundreds of thousands of abortions but providing little in the way of help for pregnant women wanting to keep their baby or considering adoption. The new report showed that hasn’t changed.

The document the abortion organization posted shows Planned Parenthood did 329,445 abortions in 2010 while it provided prenatal care to only 31,098 women and referred only 841 women to adoption agencies.

The number of women receiving prenatal care dropped significantly from 2009 to 2010, as the abortion business helped 40,489 women in 2009 — meaning almost 10,000 fewer women received prenatal support from Planned Parenthood last year than the year prior, or a drop of almost 25 percent. The number of women getting adoption referrals also declined — from a low 977 in 2009 to 841 last year, or a decline of 14 percent.

Examined another way Planned Parenthood does 391 abortions for every adoption referral it makes and almost 11 abortions for every woman it helps with prenatal care.

The trend at Planned Parenthood has been for its non-abortion services for pregnant women to decline while its number of abortions performed has increased. The 2009 annual report Planned Parenthood released earlier this year showed a 25 percent drop in prenatal care clients and a whopping 59 percent decline in adoption referrals from the 2,405 adoption referrals in 2008.

Planned Parenthood’s own records now show 5,364,540 surgical and medical abortions done at Planned Parenthood centers from 1970 through the end of 2009.
