Smoking and Abortion

Over the last few years we’ve seen an aggressive television campaign to stop smoking. It’s contained graphic imagery of real people suffering from the disfiguring effects it can bring. As awful as they were to look at, the ads have been effective. The Centers for Disease Control report it caused at least one-hundred-thousand people to quit smoking. Let’s compare that to the graphic reality of abortion. If people saw the beauty of unborn babies or the horrible reality of what abortion does to them, it would cause huge numbers of women to say no to abortion. But TV networks show the graphic result of smoking, war or abused animals, but they say no to the reality of abortion. It’s because they don’t want the women of America to see the truth. They’re loyal to the politically correct idea of abortion.
