Editor’s note. My family and I will be on vacation through August 25. I will occasionally add new items but for the most part we will repost “the best of the best” — the stories our readers have told us they especially liked over the last ten months.
I’m frequently asked by reporters why the pro-life movement is doing so well, especially among young people. I give a variety of reasons but one of them is always the ultrasound.
On the one hand, many young people have as their first baby picture, not the one showing them wrapped in a pretty pink or blue blanket after having been placed in their mother’s arms, but, rather, an ultrasound picture taken many months before they were born. Grandparents probably had that ultrasound photo taped to the refrigerator door or posted on their Facebook page. I recently told one interviewer that the pro-abortion movement was waning because of the advancement of technology.
On the other hand, technology that shows us the beauty of developing unborn life can also reveal the ugliness of abortion. There is now the opportunity to create and share amazing videos of abortion procedures, which Live Action has just done.
Working with Dr. Anthony Levatino, an OB-GYN who used to perform abortions, Live Action has produced animated videos showing the most common methods used to kill unborn children.
The videos, while unmistakably unsettling, are handled calmly by Dr. Levatino. His explanation of each “procedure” is compelling. They are a must-see for every pro-lifer, who then needs to share them with anyone willing to watch.
The videos can be viewed at abortionprocedures.com.
