The first three minutes of the video at Live Action are really inspiring with a young girl talking about considering abortion and how some signs changed her mind and then…well things get ugly.
Live Action’s blog does a great job of finding pro-life stories that really matter. Check them out.

"A picture is worth a thousand words," and there cannot be too many pictures of the violence, the terrorism in the womb, suffered by unborn innocent children. The media overall has failed to tell and show the truth of 53 million unborn children being killed by "choice." No doubt that many women who have aborted have done so out of fear, shame, coercion by parents or boyfriend. Seldom are crisis pregnancy centers given any positive publicity in secular publications. The lies just continue to spread. Those in the media have much to answer for when they pass to eternal life, and are greeted by the tens of millions of humans who were never given a chance to live.

I disagree with tmddstett, merely because ignorance is a huge part of the abortion problem. If the world had seen photos of victims of the Nazi Holocaust when it was actually happening, it might have been prevented before thousands of lives were taken. It is NOT less compassionate to show images of these unborn babies. They are victims of murder and it is JUSTICE that they are NOT FORGOTTEN. Photos DO speak a thousand words. The pro-abortion movement wants the pictures of the aborted unborn to be hidden. That is how they continue their evil and lie to women.

To the near million, the Nazi Holocaust murdered eleven M: six M Jews, three M Polish Catholics, one M other Christians and one M miscellaneous. Perhaps Kaylan is correct in her assertion; but the number of lives saved might have been millions, rather than thousands.

It is what it is. Abortion kills innocent human beings. The nazi holocaust also killed human beings but was less selective in its destruction. Black slaves (and likely slaves and indentured servants of other origins) were sometimes treated terribly and the Blacks were once thought to be less than fully human. So the truth can be horrifying, but it must be told. Forget the varnish and PC jargon; tell it like it is. We must pray and be ready to support our brothers and sisters who grow faint or become enraged at the reality, but we cannot back off and not say what is evidently so. My goodness, the Ancient Greeks would ask the rhetorical question of the pregnant woman: "What do you think she bears? A turtle, an elephant?" No human women give birth to human boys and girls. The GAP is a great project and should continue, and I have tremendous respect for those who put themselves on the line to help others understand the truth of pregnancy.

For those people scandalized that there are body parts on picture on campus, they need look no further for those same body parts in their science labs. As most aborted embryos wind up being scientific research in most major universities anyway. Inside a building or out, its disgusting and it needs to stop. That's the only way to make the images go away.

Thoughts on the pictures:
While I understand that the pictures are meant for the students, the pictures can still be seen by children. I'm not sure about this particular campus, but at the schools I went to a number of local schools would take middle school children on campus for a tour. Then they would have brown bag lunch on the quadrangle where the signs would be posted or protesters would march.
I think it's courteous to at least warn people and staff at universities when people wish to display such signs so that those touring can go elsewhere. I understand the right to Free Speech but I also uphold the Catechism which clearly states that parents are the primary teachers. Taking the discuss away from the parents is equally wrong.
