Evidence please?

National Abortion Federation (NAF) President Vicki Saporta is claiming a campaign sponsored by the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR) using trucks to display photos of aborted children is "graphic and misleading." I'm personally not a huge fan of driving around town with the pictures of aborted children on trucks but I can't find anything from Saporta explaining how these images are misleading. Are the images fake? Are the gestational ages incorrect? If so, could you then provide the public with accurate images of aborted children?

Dawn Fowler, NAF Canadian Policy and Outreach Director, and CCBR's Stephanie Gray discuss this issue during separate segments on a Canadian radio station last night from approximately 7:05 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. You can listen by clicking on "Audio Vault" on the left hand side. You can register under your own name or use my registration (Bobsmith17) and password (bobsmith17).

I think Stephanie does a very good job of answering the radio host's questions. Dawn at first tries to avoid talking about the pictures and claims that what's misleading about the CCBR's web site is the site claims there is a link between abortion and breast cancer. When directly asked why her group claims the pictures are misleading, Dawn questions where the pictures come from and claims most abortions occur when there is "no formation." Talk about misleading, eh?

I just can't fathom that people still believe this "no formation," "clumps of cells" nonsense.

The host seems to not know very much about abortion (he thought must early abortions were medication abortions) and fetal development (he was surprised to learn the pictures are of children aborted in the first trimester) but I think he asked fair questions and lets the respondents answer.
