Photographs of abortion

Jill Stanek posted a story this weekend of a woman who photographed her abortion with her cell phone. Then she posted the pictures on YouTube to prove that abortion is really no big deal. Her fetus of 6 weeks does not look anything like the graphic images that pro-life protesters show outside of abortion clinics and her hope is to "demystify the sensational images propagated by the religious and political right on this matter".

Isn't it odd that, given the advances of medical science, people who support the pro-abortion position cling to images that are only visible to the naked eye? They won't go beyond what is immediately visible to perhaps use a microscope or any other technology that is now standard equipment. It seems that is a little bit like living in the dark ages and denying the advances that have been made.

Given this type of thinking, one could look at the heavens and ask what's the big deal about astronomy? since all that can be seen, with the naked eye is little points of light - nothing interesting here, move on.

This position relies on remaining ignorant of the science; and that position is not tenable for very long, at least not if you wish to think.
