In order to have an informed discussion on abortion, the facts need to be settled first. There is no better way to settle the facts than by using the photographic evidence to help make our case. Cal Thomas, in his Oct 17 column, agreed with us.

Why does Created Equal deploy prenatal imagery and not just abortion imagery in our outreach efforts?
The juxtaposition of positive and negative images reinforces the persuasive effects of both. This tactic was employed during the battle for civil rights for African Americans. W.E.B. Dubois in Crisis alternated gruesome images of racial violence with upbeat photos of blacks. Skillfully alternating these types of depictions helped emphasize, by contrast, the depravity of segregation under Jim Crow laws in the South.
Created Equal has learned the lessons of history and is applying those insights to our movement for equality between the preborn and the born.

Emmett Till's mother used this method with the media who covered her son's murder by tacking on the open lid of the casket a photograph of her son in happier times, thus accentuating the horror of his death. Dr. King said Till was a "sacred martyr.” Rosa Parks said she "could not go to the back of the bus” when she thought about Emmett Till's murder.
