One of the biggest battles in the war against legalized abortion is breaking down the walls of euphemisms and secrets regarding this horrific procedure. Very rarely in the abortion debate does anyone actually talk about abortion itself. Too many people think of abortion as simply one political issue among many; as such, it is often included in discussions as innocuous as beautifying local parks or educating children. Yet every abortion is the deliberate killing of an innocent baby.
Back in 1992 a pro-life Indiana man named Michael Bailey discovered that federal law mandates that TV stations must air the ads of any candidate for Congress, no matter what those ads show. Believing that many people were “pro-choice” because they didn’t recognize the great evil of abortion, Bailey decided to run for Congress in order to show pictures of aborted babies on television. Surprisingly, he won the Republican primary and gained national notice for his campaign (he ultimately lost the general election in a landslide).
Even more surprisingly, that law has not changed in the intervening years. So another pro-lifer is running for Congress, this time in Washington, DC, in order to use this law to allow her to run TV ads depicting unborn babies who have been killed by abortion. Considering that in DC more pregnancies end in abortion than birth, this education of the reality of abortion is of vital importance. (Interesting side-note: YouTube is under no such constraints to allow such ads, and they have banned them from their site).
Here are the ads:
It has been shown over the years that when women see pictures of this nature they are more likely to choose life for their children. Please pray that hearts are converted and babies saved because of these commercials.
Note: I have no idea who Missy Smith is or her stand on all the issues. This post is not an overall endorsement of her candidacy, just support for letting the truth about abortion become known far and wide.
