For years, Priests for Life has been
challenging the American media:
"Show the American people what an abortion is!"
Now, we invite you to echo that
challenge by signing this online petition!
Priests for Life wants to present
millions of signatures to key representatives of major media outlets, with whom
we have developed relationships over the years. In fact, many of them have told
us that this is a point we should press. If there is supposed to be a national
debate about a procedure that is already legal, then the American people should
be able to see what it is!
We believe that the goal of having
the results of abortion aired on national television is a goal that can be
reached. We ask you to join that effort today.

A Petition to the American Media
On various television programs, the
American people are able to view some of the most common forms of surgery.
Moreover, on matters of national interest and controversy, it is in the
interests of healthy public debate that the American people be given the
information they need to form their opinions in a considered way.
Abortion is among the most common
surgical procedures in the nation, and yet very few of the American people have
ever seen what any aspect of it looks like.
In the interests of informing this
important national debate, we petition that media outlets in America show the
public how the abortion procedure is performed and what the results of that
procedure look like. This information is available from neutral medical and
scientific sources, can be presented without polemic or “taking sides” in the
national debate, and furthermore can be portrayed in a way that respects the
norms of public decency.
