Lucia Anti-abortion drop in Australia

An anti-abortion group in Victoria, Australia did a 200,000 letter drop showing images of aborted babies to unsuspecting householders. The letters were in an envelope and there was a mild warning on the front, but it seems many were unprepared for the images contained within.

The response in Australia seems to be outrage that the anti-abortion group could do such a thing. The words "offensive" and "disgusting" seem to feature many of the newspaper links that I've been reading.

Some people are also upset because their children have opened the envelopes and seen the images inside. Now this I can understand is a cause for concern. My children don't know about abortion yet. I don't plan to tell them until they are older, as my children don't need to know that the world is filled with adults that would rather murder their own children than change their lifestyles. So, I would be upset if my children opened a letter to find such images inside.

However, the likelihood of my children opening such a letter is very slim, as they've been taught not to open mail without permission. Maybe the people whose children have opened the envelopes might like to think about instituting a no-mail opening policy with their own children.

Which leads me to the most important point. Where is the outrage about the fact that small babies are routinely murdered? All these people talked about how upset they were to see the images, as if the seeing was the upsetting bit. Incredible, really.

Excellent Lucyna.

The Abortion issue is something I need to spend more time on.

Why are people outraged that little children should see graphic images, and yet not concerned that the same child a few years younger could be horrifically and legally murdered?

Also, interesting that it seems to be mainly Christians who fight against abortion. Are we Christians all scientifically misled, or do we actually hold a real value on all human life?

You know the old saying. 'Out of site out of Mind'.

Abortion of babies is an abhorrent practice.

Where is the faux outrage against gross body parts on cigarette packets?

Smoking ~ 5000 deaths per year (NZ)
Abortion ~ 40000 deaths per year

(guesstimates; but fairly confident in those figures)

It's pure economic convenience; Ruthanasia was nothing compared to our mass culling of the future.

Yep, out of sight....

Most folks don't know and don't really want to know.

Unfortunately that translates to ignorance about a lot of other things and in this time, ignorance has very painful consequences.
