Photographs of Aborted Babies

August 28, 1992

So Riley, a philosophy instructor at a Catholic university, believes the American public is only fueled by emotional instinct and, if subjected to "gross-me-out" photos of aborted fetuses, would immediately abandon the ridiculous notion of reproductive rights?

Great idea, Mr. Riley! I have an even better one, though; why don't we instruct the media to bombard the world with images of starving, impoverished families in Third World nations who continue having children because the Catholic Church tells them birth control is sinful? There's no doubt that truly compassionate folk like yourself would shudder and take immediate action.
