Warning of graphic content for factual and educational purposes
Beware this blog today became intense for myself and hopefully for others. I have been scared and worried to post such comments and videos for the graphic content. I have largely stayed away from this cause it it quite disturbing. But when it is getting to the point that the unborn children and their horrific deaths are being censored by Big Media, Google and You Tube then it becomes apparent that grassroots awareness is necessary.
In Norma McCorvey's (the Roe of Roe vs Wade) own words: "I saw the baby parts, which are a horrible sight to see, but I urge everyone who supports abortion to look at the bodies to face the truth of what they support." When the abolitionist were attempting to abolish the slave trade they made the people aware of the atrocities in the slave trade and the horrific conditions of the ships they were exported and imported on, etc etc etc and these facts persuaded many and helped gain the support the abolitionists needed. Many people were maybe ignorant of the atrocity of the slave trade. And so I do not intend to post this post to emotionally charge up anyone though it may have that effect but rather to factually charge others up to be persuaded to by lawful means put an end to this trade. There may be many voting in ignorance for a candidate that supports abortion largely because Big Media doesn't reveal any facts about what an abortion is. The facts of the act of abortion is nowhere to be found in Big Media. (To see how William Wilberforce relates to this subject see comments made by his unaborted Great, Great grandson concerning the Colorado Personhood Amendment that he supports at Great, great grandson of William Wilberforce supports Colorado personhood amendment to define a human as human from conception!! )
The slave trade was heinous and men and women banded together to do something about it lawfully and not hatefully. It took time, patience, love and endurance. Hate only condemns our cause. We must lovingly and lawfully persuade our fellow men and women to be aware of what they are supporting when they vote for this or that President, Senator or Congressman.
Forgiveness and not hate is the answer to the opponents of the unborn. See Testimony of Roe of Roe vs Wade, Testimony of co-founder of NARAL and Dr. of the largest abortion clinic in the world has a pro-life change of heart and the abortion Dr in this post and there are many other examples.
Testimony of former Abortionist
Former Abortionist: ‘All I Could See Was Somebody’s Son or Daughter’-"Priests for Life, a Catholic advocacy group that wants to end abortion and euthanasia, brought its message to Capitol Hill last week by letting Dr. Anthony Levatino share the graphic details of a procedure he performed hundreds of times -- before a personal tragedy led him to become a pro-life activist.
“Imagine for a moment you are a pro-choice obstetrician-gynecologist like I once was,” Levatino said at press conference. “Your patient today is 17 years old and she is 20 weeks pregnant. At 20 weeks, she has been feeling her baby kick for the last two weeks. If you could see her baby, she would be as long as your hand from the top of her head to the bottom of her rump, not counting the legs. Your patient is now asleep on an operating room table and you are there to help her with her problem pregnancy.”
Levatino went on to describe how he used a 13-inch instrument for “grasping” inside the uterus to remove the baby, piece by piece.
“The toughest part of a D&E [dilation and evacuation] abortion is extracting the baby’s head,” Levatino said. “If you have a really bad day, like I often did, a little face may come out and stare back at you.”...Levatino, who still practices as an obstetrician and gynecologist, stood next to scale models of unborn babies at different stages of development. Charts detailed how the two most common second-trimester abortions are performed. He demonstrated with surgical tools how babies are taken apart as they are removed from the uterus.
But, he told CNSNews.com, it wasn’t until he faced a different kind of death that he decided he could no longer perform abortions.
“My wife and I had an infertility problem,” Levatino said. “We were unable to have children, and after several years of effort, we were very, very fortunate in being able to adopt a little girl whom we named Heather. As sometimes happens, after years of effort -- and I mean three surgeries on my wife’s part and everything else -- we finally adopted a child, and my wife got pregnant the very next month. We ended up with two children just 10 months apart. We were very blessed that way.
“On June 23, 1984, my son was trying to cross the street, and my daughter, who was always the little mother, was running after him to tell him not to do that, and she was struck and killed by a car.
“If you haven’t gone through that kind of tragedy, you don’t have a clue. You may think you can imagine it, but trust me: You have no idea what it’s like to lose a child, in any way.
“What do you do after a tragedy? You mourn for a while and you try to get back into your routine. I don’t know how long after her death I had to do my first D&E abortion. I remember reaching in and literally ripping out an arm or a leg and looking at it in the clamp and I got sick. When you start an abortion you can’t stop. If you leave anything behind, you [can] bet your patient is going to come back infected, bleeding or worse.
“I soldiered on and I finished that abortion.”
But, Levatino said, something had changed.
“For the first time in my life I really looked at that pile of goo at the side of the table, and all of a sudden I didn’t see her wonderful right to choose, and I didn’t see the $600 wad of cash that I made in 15 minutes, and I couldn’t think about what a great doctor I was because I took care of her problem. All I could see was somebody’s son or daughter.”
Levatino is now a medical adviser for Priests for Life and last week, he helped members of the group canvas the halls of Congress to show pro-abortion legislators medical charts and models and to ask them the question, “When you say the word ‘abortion,’ is this what you mean?”
“The last thing abortion supporters want to talk about is abortion,” Pavone said. “But this campaign puts the words of the abortionists before the public, so that those who vote in favor of abortion can no longer hide from its violent reality.”
Several other advisers with Priest for Life were at the press conference, including Alveda King, pastor, pro-life activist and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."
This is not emotionalism though it triggers tears but it is tears triggered by the hard factual reality. You Tube has censored videos of pro-life groups trying to air the factual reality of abortion as this Dr testifies. Sure it may lead to powerful emotions and concerns but to censor reality is to distort it. See The Christian Institute takes on Google and wins over ban on abortion ads!!! and more on You Tube below....
You Tube, Google and Obama vs the unborn
YouTube Yanks Video Exposing Obama's Abortion Extremism-"A video that was produced by a Kansas pro-life group and that exposed Sen. Barack Obama's extremist support for abortion was blocked by YouTube.com yesterday - the latest in a number of pro-life videos that have been blocked by the site. The Kansas Coalition for Life, which partners with Operation Rescue on a number of pro-life projects, produced a video titled "Obama: WRONG Change for Children," which included information about Obama's voting record on abortion-related bills...."The video is in no way distasteful, pornographic or outside of the ordinary," said KCFL Director Mark Gietzen. "It does however make a strong point, and we feel that it was pulled only because it makes a simple, clear statement about what Obama's change is all about."
The video begins with a warning stating, "This video contains graphic images showing what Obama supports." It shows a photo of an aborted baby.
However, Operation Rescue observed that it is doubtful that the brief graphic image was responsible for YouTube removing the video. Numerous other videos posted on YouTube.com show images of aborted babies, including videos of protesters with large aborted baby signs, and Operation Rescue's Truth Trucks. A hard-hitting video graphically exposing the practices of late-term abortionist George R. Tiller that was produced for Operation Rescue was restricted by YouTube to viewers over 18, but remains accessible.
"Political censorship is the only remaining explanation for YouTube blocking the KCFL Obama video," said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger. "Apparently, it is allowable to criticize political candidates on YouTube, as long as you do not criticize Obama on his abortion track record. It is unconscionable for YouTube to engage in this kind of political censorship in the middle of a battle for the future of America. We have posted this video to our web site to ensure that it will be easily accessible."
Operation Rescue is encouraging concerned individuals to contact YouTube.com and ask that they reinstate the video.

YouTube Yanks Video Exposing Obama’s Abortion Extremism-"It is doubtful that the brief graphic image was responsible for YouTube removing the video. Numerous other videos posted on YouTube.com show images of aborted babies without any problems, including videos of protesters with large aborted baby signs, and Operation Rescue’s Truth Trucks. A hard-hitting video graphically exposing the practices of late-term abortionist George R. Tiller that was produced for Operation Rescue was restricted by YouTube to viewers over 18, but remains accessible."-Both of these videos are embeded below. See for yourself that the video that You Tube is allowing to remain on YouTube is clearly more graphic then the one that has been censored. Thus, giving the impression to that the only reason why the censored video was censored is because YouTube is pro-Obama.

LiveActionFilms.org-"ALERT: YouTube Has Unfairly Censored Live Action Films Videos. WATCH THE BANNED VIDEOS(and then help us get them restored)"
Google CEO Eric Schmidt asked on-camera September 4th why the Live Action Films videos were removed from YouTube!-"YouTube removed four LiveActionFilms videos for "content inappropriate" from its site during the last 2 weeks of August without giving any warning.
The oldest video had been on the site for over a year and the most recent for over four months In total these videos have received over 160,000 views. The content in these videos is not violent, profane, or sexually explicit. We encourage you to watch the 4 banned videos at the bottom of this page."
Obama makes comments that places him as the most radical pro-abortion presidential nominee in history
Obama Campaign Ad Targets Abortion Survivor-You must read the last sentence of this article!!! “Abortion proponents seem to ignore medical science,” she said. “How can you have in-utero surgery going on in one wing of the hospital and abortion in another wing?”
Jessen added that protecting babies who survive abortion goes beyond the abortion debate. “We are not talking about children inside the womb, we are talking about living, breathing children outside of the womb,” she said.
When the Illinois version of the Born Alive Infant act first came to the Illinois Senate floor in 2001, Obama spoke against it, after engaging in a colloquy with its sponsor, Sen. Patrick O’Malley.
“I do want to just make sure everybody in the Senate knows what this bill is about, as I understand it,” Obama said. “Senator O’Malley, the testimony during the committee indicated that one of the key concerns was -- is that there was a method of abortion, where the -- the fetus or child, as -- as some might describe it, is still temporarily alive outside the womb. And one of the concerns that came out in the testimony was the fact they were not being properly cared for during this brief period of time that they were still living. Is that correct?”
Obama went on to question whether the law would pass constitutional muster if the “child … temporarily alive outside the womb” was called a “person.”
“Number one, whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the Equal Protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a--a child, a nine-month-old child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place.”
While debating related legislation on April 4, 2002, Obama stated his concern about abortionists:
“As I understand it, this puts the burden on the attending physician who has determined, since they were performing this procedure, that, in fact, this is a nonviable fetus; that if that fetus, or child -- however way you want to describe it -- is now outside the mother's womb and the doctor continues to think that it's nonviable but there's, let's say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they're not just coming out limp and dead, that, in fact, they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved.”
When asked by CNSNews.com if she wanted to add anything to the interview, Jessen was quick to respond.
“I have forgiven my biological mother for what she’s done,” said Jessen, who was adopted. “I think that’s an equally important message to get out.”
