When I first saw this title in my newsreader, I thought it was going to be a photo of a bloody baby with its head hanging half outside the womb or some other graphic photo. But I was amazed when I actually saw that it was just a normal 20ish week-old baby in the palm of a hand. Nothing graphic about it whatsoever.
So what in the world is wrong with that? How is that ‘too controversial’? Just goes to show the lengths these leftist papers will go to keep people from knowing the truth – that a fetus is a baby, a human life while in the womb whether it is one day or 9 months after conception:
LIFE NEWS – A national pro-life organization is outraged after three major American newspapers rejected a pro-life ad as “too controversial.”
The Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and the LA Times refused to run an advertisement created by Heroic Media.
The ad features a hand holding a 20- to 24-week-old baby with the quote, “This child has no voice, which is why it depends on yours. Speak Up.”
Heroic Media Executive Director Joe Young said he was shocked and angered that the media outlets were willing to talk about the issue but were unwilling to show the reality of life at 20 weeks.
“I am disturbed that these papers would run article after article promoting the notion that abortion is a victimless act without consequences,” Young said. “The fact remains, children who are unique individuals – never again to be duplicated – are being killed in the most violent way imaginable and they feel the excruciating pain of that death.”
The newspapers took issue with the image of the baby.
“It seems as though it is okay to talk about the issue in general, but when you actually put a face to the discussion, then it becomes controversial,” Young said.
