8weekunbornbabyPro-life author Randy Alcorn talks about how pictures show the humanity of preborn children, and how pro-choicers don’t like to face that reality:

[D]enial remains surprisingly strong. When I showed an intrauterine photograph of an eight-week unborn child to a pro-choice advocate—an intelligent college graduate—she asked me, “Do you really think you’re going to fool anyone with this trick photography?”

I told her she could go to Harvard University Medical School textbooks, Life magazine or Nilsson’s “A Child Is Born” and find exactly the same pictures. She didn’t want to hear it. Why? Because she was really saying, “That’s obviously a child in this photograph, and because I don’t want to believe abortion kills a child, I refuse to believe that’s a real photograph.
