I have always been pro-life,
but last night, viewing YouTube, I saw the actual embryonic victims
of abortion on the crime scene--along with these images on
[www.priestsforlife.org]. Where do I sign up to March, sit in,
lobby, get handcuffed, waterhosed, dog chased, and national guarded
because of this evil that is perpetrated on the unborn? – Terri
Thank you for showing the horrific,
unfathomable pictures of the burned and dismembered precious babies
during your EWTN television program. I am pro-life and Catholic, but
didn't realize I had slipped into complacency. At first I would turn
away because I couldn't bear to watch. Then I knew I had to
watch! So I did and dropped to my knees sobbing and in agony
calling out to our LORD from the depths of my soul and also asking
as to what I could do to help stop this. I don't know where God will
lead me from here but I can tell you that seeing those little babies
having been so brutally murdered (and in a "civilized" society), God
has given me the conviction to pray more fervently and to speak
forthrightly to my Catholic friends who also have slipped into
complacency and even into denial. In these situations my words were
basically ineffective (as far as I can tell). So I will pray that
more people will see those pictures! It is too easy to buy into the
popular rhetoric that it's only a blob of tissue. Please keep
the pictures on the TV program and website! All denial
disappears! – Anita, Oregon
The pro-life images moved me to act in the
pro-life movement. I now participate in events sponsored by Anti
Choice Project, where we stand on corners of busy intersections with
our graphic images. God bless you for leading the way! -- Jennifer
Thank you for your ministry. I have been
pro-life for many years but never saw images of what really happens
to an unborn baby when it is aborted. My wife and I have three
wonderful boys and they, just like any baby, are precious gifts from
God. What has happened to the world that the most important thing of
all (life) can be treated so casually? Shame on us as a nation,
shame on me for not doing more to fight it. God help us I pray! --
After viewing this abortion photos I promise:
I will give all my life for Jesus. I want to give all my life
against abortion. -- Laurie, mother of three children
I have posted a link on one of my blog sites
to your website and with your permission used a couple of
photographs to illustrate the horrible act of abortion in this
country. I am a life long Catholic and I will make this issue known
to as many people possible until my final breath. God has made it
clear to me through the Holy Spirit that it is a mission in my life
that is of the utmost importance. -- Kent
I have been thinking about setting up a
website and wanted to know how I could get abortion photos like what
is on the priests for life site? After looking at the photos there I
really feel called to do more to stop the horror of abortion. I am a
Catholic convert and can say that before seeing those photos I was
not so concerned about the abortions that other women chose to seek.
I was raised with the attitude that it was a woman's choice, and
that is woefully wrong. When looking at the photos my insides
twisted painfully and I felt sick for hours afterward. You can't
help but feel that abortion is murder when seeing the pictures. –
My name is Rodney of the Philippines. I am a
devote Catholic, a University Professor, and an EWTN regular viewer.
I watch your show on EWTN but have not really gotten to visit your
website. However, tonight seeing the pictures of aborted children
for the first time on the net really broke my heart. I never
realized the extent of these horrible crime until I saw the
terrible, merciless killing of these poor innocent aborted babies. I
could not help but cry. Although, I am active in [various programs]
I also want to be really active in the pro-life movement.
I have seen a few of the pictures of aborted
children and it just breaks my heart seeing those children broken
apart. All of their little bones and hands. I am a college student,
I am writing a research paper on abortion. I found your site while
surfing the web. I have always being against abortion, but had never
seen pictures like this. After seeing them, I have announced myself
"A TOTAL PRO-LIFE WOMAN" I want to do something about it, I want to
be part of all of you who are making a difference against abortion.
Please tell me how I can do it. I want to send a message to all
young people to make the right choices in life and to protect the
life of our children starting from the womb. Please tell me how I
can start to make this difference. -- Mayra
I have seen your images on the
website showing babies at different stages of development.
These are some of the most sacred pictures I have ever seen.
God forgive me for not speaking up sooner against abortion.
I am organizing a memorial --
Thank you for the EWTN program
on abortion! It made me realize how important this issue is...and
how we can take a stand in the upcoming election! Afterwards, I
visited the Priests for Life website and viewed the disturbing but
powerful abortion photos. Moved into action, I emailed people a few
links to this website so they too could view the photos and get
involved to end abortion. – A. Robbins, TX
This is in response to the
question of how images of aborted babies affected me.
I was mildly pro-life until I went to a seminar by Greg Cunningham
at which he showed his movie: "Hard Truth."
I made myself look at the images of the aborted children, and
was surprised to see how perfectly formed and beautiful they must
have been before being so coldly mutilated by medically trained
people who should have used their knowledge to protect these
children. I couldn't
stop crying. As a result of that experience, and with the prayers of
several active Catholics who also attended the seminar, I plunged
more deeply into pro-life efforts, including praying the Rosary
(even though I wasn't yet Catholic), sidewalk counseling, and
offering help to pregnant women.
What a humbling and grace-filled adventure!
I joined the Catholic Church in 1996, a few months before
receiving the incredible gift of becoming the godmother of a baby
whose mother allowed me to take her home from an abortion mill.
Little Christopher is now 8 years old, and is a bright, happy
child. Thank you, Lord
Jesus, for the courage of Greg Cunningham and Fr. Pavone! –
I have always been against
abortion. …. I grew up a rather well-informed child on such
deplorable matters and continued to speak out whenever I heard
abortion referred to as “a removal of cell-tissue.” Several years
and five children later, however, I had forgotten about how
important it was to ALWAYS speak up for those who could not, until I
stumbled upon your website. Seeing those photos again….still made me
weep. I looked around at my five beautiful children, my mind reeling
in horror and disbelief. One haunting thought crossed my mind, “If I
were pro-choice, and had decided I must abort, which one of my
children would have been dispensable?” My oldest with his beautiful
brown eyes and loving ways? My second with her lovely smile and
unshakeable faith? My third with her non-stop chatter and explosive
inner fire? My fourth with her solemn eyes and her wise, nurturing
manner? Or maybe perhaps my fifth with his comic antics, mischievous
grin and infectious giggle? To all pro-choicers with children I
direct a challenge. Take a good close look at who your children are,
then decide which one you could live without. Which one would you
‘choose?’ Which one wouldn’t matter?
My mother made a choice. In between me and my brother’s
birth, she had an abortion….What if it had been me instead? -- CJ,
I am twenty weeks pregnant and
came across you site trying to find pictures of what my unborn
miracle looks like.
These abortion procedures absolutely disgust me.
How could any doctor perform these procedures?
This is absolutely disgusting!!!
I am just so beside myself with hurt and anger that any
mother, or doctor would actually go through this.
Is there anything I can do to try and help save innocent
babies from this fate?
I want to do something about this but I am not sure what to do. –
Thank you for your talk today at
I could only stay for the first half hour (babysitting
issues). I guess God
knew what I needed to hear though.
It took me all day to work up the courage to look at the
images. NEVER will a
day go by as long as I live that I will not pray to end this
horribly evil practice.
I know God has been calling me to do something about this.
PRAISE GOD that you came to our parish.
Thank you!! -
Let me thank you for providing
information about abortion.
I was shocked to see what really happens.
I had no idea. I
am 42 years old and I cannot believe that I didn't know.
I've always just said and believed that at conception, a
child is born.
I've been sitting here looking at the images on PFL's site with my
mouth hanging open and I'm compelled to ask you...
Why on earth do you suppose
this is kept so secret?
I never knew that babies were torn literally apart during an
abortion and somehow people are taught to think that's all right!
… I'm totally
irritated that even I, at my age... didn't know!
…As for me, I will spend the rest of my life making sure that
everyone I know knows the truth.
…I saw those tiny hands and feet and all I could think to do
was cry out to God and pray that He will do something…
How He must be grieving over those precious babies!
My troubles suddenly seem so
bless you all for getting the truth out there for people to finally
with their own eyes…
How sad it is that we are taught to proudly don the phrase
"It's my body" and the truth is kept from our eyes.
Nobody shows us the tiny pieces (arms and legs) of life that
will be pulled from our wombs without mercy.
thanked God for you tonight...
for what you do with your web site.
You save lives by the minute. -- Lisa P.
Because I am an "adult" I didn't
think I needed to see pictures of aborted babies. Because I am an
"adult" I thought I knew what aborted babies looked like. Well, God
proved me wrong and touched me to open your files and look at those
aborted babies. My mind never comprehended what murder of a baby
really looked like! Thank you for opening my eyes and my heart. I am
changed forever. In Christ’s name, let’s end abortion Now!
I just spent a moment going
through your website and couldn't believe the horrible pictures I
Even though I am a mother of 2, I just can't believe how developed
those fetuses were. At
the earliest stage of pregnancy, you can still see a portion of what
is to come. A foot or hand, even the head. I always knew what they
looked like at the early stages, but never really put them in that
prospective. I am
certainly going to let everyone I know about your website. I think
everyone should see those pictures for themselves. I do wish your
website was bigger, better known, and just screaming out to let
everyone find you!
Please let me know if there's anything we can do (in small towns) to
help you out. Thank you
so much for being here. -- Eva
I think it’s great that you are
getting out this message, people need to see the inhumane acts that
are done to innocent lives every day. If there is anything I can do
to help the fight against abortion please contact me. On Sunday, May
18th I heard a priest from your org on "Catholic Comment" here in
our Diocese of Fort Wayne/South Bend. I currently volunteer at the
Crisis Pregnancy Center of NE Indiana and after viewing your website
I feel I am not doing enough to save the unborn. I am so moved at
the site of all those innocent lives taken away so violently, so
inhumanely. I pray everyday for an end to abortion - I will do more.
I will work to let everyone know of your work and continue to work
God Bless You. I
usually avoided looking at pictures because I figured why put myself
through the pain of seeing the dead babies when I already believed
abortion is wrong. However, as the year 2003 ends, I have been
planning out my giving budget for the upcoming year (like I always
do). I have had on my heart more and more supporting anti-abortion
work such as Priests for Life. I have been on your mailing list for
a few months now. I pulled up your site today and dared to look at
some of the photos and I am bawling! My heart is broken that where
you can clearly see a human body, our country - our world - allows
murder of babies to be legal! I am so grieved I am beside myself. I
mean, abortion is always wrong and always grievous, but the photos
of the late-term abortions are so blatantly obvious even if someone
was unsure of the early-term abortions I don’t see how they could
possibly conceive that it is not murder! Not that I needed the push,
but I am anxious to begin supporting your work.
These images are the most
horrendous thing I have ever seen, I have five children, one of
which is only 11 weeks old, I don't quite know what to say. Please
email me to let me know how I can help to stop this.
Dear Father, I found your
website as I was looking for fetal development pics.
I am 34 weeks pregnant and I wanted to see images of babies
of the same age. I have
always been pro-life, but in recent years, I have not been as vocal
about my views. I know that the Lord will forgive me for this, but I
am ashamed for not taking a stand when I know that I should have.
When I looked at the images of the precious children that the
Lord so lovingly created, I cried. I
know that many of the mothers who aborted these babies had no real
idea what they were doing, and I believe that God will forgive them
if they ask. I know
that most of them would never go through with it if they saw the
images that are on your website.
I pray that the Lord will continue to bless your work.
I just want to say that this is
the only site that I have been to that actually SHOWS what an
abortion is. I wrote to my local paper about abortion before the
election to try to get some votes in for Bush. I will pray for
everyone involved with your website and your movement. I wish I
could do more than pray and cry for those babies. What else can I
do? When I try to talk to people, they just ignore me saying that I
don't have the right to force my religion on me. It isn't all about
religion! Science proves this too! Just look at the
pictures...Sorry, I get frustrated sometimes...Let me know what else
I can do. I just don't feel like I am doing enough.
I simply wanted to say that I
have recently become Catholic and Pro-life.
Prior to meeting my husband and his "Faith-filled" and "red
hot" pro-life Mother I was Pro-abortion and completely ignorant to
the truth of what abortion really means.
I honestly never thought about what an abortion really means;
killing a baby human being.
At the time I think I just thought of it as "not being
pregnant anymore." If I
had seen the images of abortion then, I would have been pro-life a
long time ago. Today, as active as I can be in the Pro-life "cause,"
with three little ones of my own, all ages five and under, these
images literally hurt my very core when I view them.
I almost can't bear to see them.
Not only because of the gruesomeness and violence but because
of the loss of life. To
view one of God's innocent creations destroyed against His will is
almost indescribable. The hurt I feel for these babies is almost
paralyzing. However, it
hasn't paralyzed me! It
has charged me to fight the evil of abortion.
To educate myself.
I read, and reread, and reread a book my Mother-in-law let me
borrow, "Who Broke the Baby?" in order to educate myself if for when
I encounter someone who is pro-abortion, which has been happening
lately!! I pray
everyday I wear my pro-life T-shirts whenever I have the chance
(lately over top of my turtleneck!!) And I have turned my mini-van
into a "battle wagon" with bumper stickers!! (my husband was worried
our car would be vandalized during the elections)!
I say: "bring it
on!! Long story short, while very disturbing, I think the pictures
of these aborted babies are crucial and necessary and can be life
changing for all who view them.
God bless your organization and Father Pavone. "Put a fire in
our hearts. For the
battle is at hand." – Marly,
What I saw was utterly
disgusting. I have a 2 month old daughter and I could never imagine
doing something so awful. Those were gods children god made them.
They have every right to be here as much as we do. Just because they
aren't born yet doesn't mean they aren't people. It doesn't mean
they couldn't feel all that pain before they died. It makes me sick
to see such a thing and realize that one is going on right now and I
can't stop it. It's murder pure murder. I want to put a stop to it.
I don't know how but I want to. I want to gather as many people as I
can and go to the White House and protest I want to show these
pictures to the whole world I want to stop abortion before it can
happen again. every one has the right to life no matter how small.
This is truly a sad time we live in. Please e mail me back. Maybe
you can help me. I am only 18 but I can do something no matter how
small it might be. Someone has to stop this sickness.
Let me state first that I am
rarely if ever speechless, I am very outspoken and speak what I
feel. The first trimester abortion images are jolting; however, your
late pregnancy abortion images will haunt me the rest of my life.
What kind of species are we that we would allow this horrific act to
become acceptable practice? For the love of God, what monster came
up with the idea of partial birth abortion and who allowed it to
continue? What sort of people perform these horrendous acts. I
always knew abortion was an unpleasant but unseen part of our world
yet I was silent all these years, and my silence was in essence
giving my acceptance, I promise you this, I will never be silent
about this matter again. I will never sleep soundly again, and will
pass the link to your galleries to anyone and everyone I can think
of. God Forgive Me.
All glory and honor to our
Heavenly and Merciful Father... I would just like to commend you all
for being the salt on this unseasoned earth, for being the light in
the dim and dark world we live in today. The photos I have seen have
illuminated the atrocities that we live in. The information you have
provided has inspired me in using the Partial Birth Abortion Ban as
my persuasive speech topic for the speech college course I am
presently taking and to write poetry for the victims that are unable
to speak up for themselves. Thank you for helping me see the
truth---for what it really is. May God continue to bless and keep
After looking at your photos I
am more Pro-life than ever…May God have mercy on our souls...the
Pope is right…we are a culture of death...following in the footsteps
of Ancient Rome.
First of all, I thank God for
you so He can use you! Though I was pro-life before I found this
site, I now feel that God might want to use me to fight against
abortion. On Tuesday, I am scheduled to give a speech in one of my
college classes, and I have chosen to persuade my classmates that
abortion is wrong and should be illegal, not only in this country
but in every country. I really appreciate the images of abortion you
have posted, which I will use during my speech. They have changed my
life. I hope and pray that they will change other lives as well. God
Bless you for your efforts and compassion for the unborn children!
The recent article on the
internet with regard to partial birth abortion prompted me to look
at your website.
Although I knew that this atrocity existed, I had never seen
the things that you have on your website.
I am devastated!
I believe that someday we will look back at this and realize that it
was worse than the holocaust.
There just has to be something that we can do to stop
this........... Perhaps God directed me to your website.
I don't have a lot of money but I can certainly make a small
donation, and will continue to do so as often as possible.
Is there anything else that we as a Christian family can do
to help stop this?
Thank you for your enlightening website and for your fight against
this horrible crime. I
will pray for your continuing strength.
I read with such sorrow the stories of women who terminated
their little ones.
Tears stream down my face as I read of their grief.
No one can understand until they have gone through the
horror. …. – Barbara
I’m doing a science report in
class on any scientific subject that we want. Just a few hours ago I
decided to change from research on viruses to abortion (embryology
related). The pictures just got to my heart in a touching way. I can
feel my heart drop as I went through these true, [detailed]
pictures. I was saddened that this murder happens to innocent babies
but I couldn't stop looking at the images. I asked God to put a stop
to this madness - someday he will. I've seen pictures like these at
Christian camps and was reminded of it today. It really "hit home"
to me. Thanks for that and to all of the other abortion fighters.
NOW, I WAN'T TO JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST ABORTION
GOD BLESS THE WORLD!!!
Keep preaching the word.
And I say: Thank you JESUS,
I just want to thank you for all
the wonderful work you do. Your web page has changed me completely.
I was a mild and silent pro-lifer. Now, upon reading many personal
testimonies and upon watching the pictures of aborted babies, I try
to use every possible situation to speak on the issue. -- Sr.
Your website is amazing. I have
always been pro-life and it still brought me to my knees. What can
we do to get these images out in the public? -- Diane
Thank you so much for your
website. I am involved with pro-life work and it really helped me to
see those pictures. It made me even stronger in my stand against
abortion and I hope with your website you will change the hearts of
many. I also hope that I will help and save children and I ask that
you pray for me and my team of pro-life workers.
I cannot even think of words to
express the horror and intense depression that overcame me at the
sight of the images of the aborted babies on your website. Not only
that, but an intense sense of remorse and regret for my inaction
over the years.
So Sorrowful, -- Suzanna
I cannot tell you how I feel
after viewing the abortion photos.
I have never believed in abortion, but after today, I know I
will be much more vocal about sharing my feelings.
Thank you for sharing these with me.
I will sign up to receive the newsletter also. -- Beth
[I remember] that moment when I
saw the babies pictures first time. It was a really horrible moment.
Still, I can't get the pictures out of my head. Since that day, I
give everybody who I know or don't know your web address. And I took
all of the pictures as a print out and I show and give them to
everybody. And then I try to explain what the abortion is. I tell
the story of innocent babies like Malachi. I try to show a big
reality that the abortion is a horrible murder of this modern (!)
world. (the worst thing: victims are babies who are not born yet and
who are angels in the
It's the time! Every people must see and understand some bitter
realities. It's time to think and wake up. ... And again and again I
thank you for your strong belief, your huge heart, your pretty soul
and your sensitive mission. All of you are in my prayers every time.
I began my search tonight trying
to find out what a partial[-birth] abortion is and to find out why
everyone is so upset about it; so that I may make educated,
Christian decisions while voting this year. I am and have always
been pro-life, but had no idea what abortion really is. The
atrociousness of the procedures extends beyond Hitler's terror I
believe. I cannot understand how any person could even take part in
the procedures much less, have an abortion done and sleep at night.
Yet, I guess we, society, have no idea what abortion really consists
of. The most astounding to me is the graphics of babies only 8 weeks
in the womb. I was told as a teen that babies are just blood clots
at that stage. My Lord must be so disappointed in us all for
allowing this to go on. I am both sick to my stomach and energized
with the wisdom you have given me. Without even reading, I got the
truth loud and clear. Thank you for your powerful mission. I love
and pray for you. Through the Grace of God
I became a pro-life activist
because of you and Defend Life.com. I saw a picture of an aborted
fetus and it made me cry like a baby. I mean that literally. That is
why I pray on our streets with Respect Life and at abortion clinics.
God Bless you abundantly. I will keep you in my prayers. -- MK
I would like to just say I was
completely horrified at the pictures I saw on your site. I have seen
similar pictures before but nevertheless I still feel nauseated. I
have two beautiful little boys and at the age of 18 is when I got
pregnant with my first who is now 7 years old and regardless of the
circumstance of my age I never considered an abortion and there has
never been one day that has gone by that I thought otherwise. It
just was not even in my thoughts as an option and although over the
years I have been through a lot of hard times trying to raise the
It was worth it. When I gave birth to my second son who is
now 3.... I uttered those exact words as he took his first breath on
this earth. IT WAS WORTH IT!!! And I see all of those beautiful
babies killed innocent lives never having that chance my children
did to breathe a breath on this earth or to experience life, and I
pray for each one of them. I know they are with God and their lives
were taken but I do believe they were not completely taken in vain.
I live in a small town I know that abortion goes on in our town. I
am not sure where I would love to get involved and spread the word
and help to save lives I am just not sure how to create an impact
where I live. The OBGYN I was referred to when I was pregnant with
my 1st son...did perform abortions which as soon as I found that out
I switched doctors. I thought how well can a man who will kill
innocent children for money ensure the safety of my pregnancy or
even care for that matter. I would love to help if I can please let
Hi my name is Angela and I am a
wife and mother of three children ages 3,2 and 1. I have not seen
images of aborted babies for so long that it just tears into my soul
especially because I just had 3 beautiful healthy children who are
full of life. I am a daily communicant and of course my 3 kids are
always with me. I would like to help in some way... --
Today I went to volunteer at the
Right to Life Booth. I have been avoiding the booth for a couple of
years following a devastating miscarriage and just a general "lack
of enthusiasm" for the pro-life movement. I just finished looking at
every single graphic photo you have on your website and all's I can
say is "I'm back!!!" The pictures have helped me get over myself and
my own situation and have energized me to join the fight again to
save the babies... and stop the holocaust. It's heinous and horrific
crime with SO MANY VICTIMS!!!! --
I can say that I have never
really believed in abortion. Now that I have seen these images of
innocent children and the procedures used, I am absolutely
disgusted. I am on my way to being an anti-abortion activist. Thank
you for showing the world what is really going on today. -- Heather
You really are doing a great
job. I cried so much
when I seen your website.
If you have any info on how I could help rescue the poor
little babies please help me.
Thanks again. -- Molly
Dear Father Pavone,
I saw a special on the Army of God last night and thought you were
radical, dangerous and unstable. Today, I saw your website with the
photos of the aborted babies and wept. I have always been
anti-abortion and have voted against any candidate whose party or
platform supports abortion. However, like many of the uninformed
masses, abortion was something abstract, impersonal yet immoral.
Your web site has changed my view of abortion forever. Thank you for
your life and for your work.
I just spent 35 minutes viewing
the photos of the remains of all the aborted babies on your website
and now I can hardly breathe. I’ve seen pictures before, but nothing
like I saw just now. God help us. I needed to see those pictures to
get re-energized and to remember exactly what it is we’re fighting
for. Thank you very much for posting the evidence that abortion is
the most gruesome, cruel and horrific evil that has ever existed in
the world. Please leave the photos on your website so I can direct
people to them. God bless you all. May our most loving Mother Mary
help us to end this scourge once and for all! I have always been
against abortion but seeing the graphics not only enrages me it also
awoke the silent, big dog inside me. I no longer will be silenced
either by politicians, feminists, pro-murder organizations such as
Planned Parenthood, ACLU or any other slime group. I believe in
peace and not in violence as Jesus called all of us to do. Thank You
Priests for Life you have now given me a purpose to serve God.
During the marriage I had 3
miscarriages and gave birth to these 2 boys. I have never agreed
with abortion, but never took a stand either. After my miscarriages,
and the births of my precious children, I wondered, no, I agonized
over many things....how and why people could abuse their living
children, and how could one abort a life because it was deemed
inconvenient. I always knew that it must be a horrible sight, but
never saw these types of images until, as I was researching
Catholicism (I am considering converting), I came across your site.
I literally cried out loud....my own children safely tucked in their
beds....I had to go upstairs and look at them and touch them. And I
prayed again for my 3 that were called back to God before they were
born. I consider myself the mother to 5 children....3 were called
away before I could see their faces. I will meet them one day, I'm
sure. Please continue your mission to stop this horrible killing of
innocents. I am now considering becoming a soldier in this
war.....where once I thought that it was too stressful for a woman
to see these images and face protestors in such a time of stress and
doubt about their actions.. Even though I didn't agree with what
they were doing, I was concerned about their mental suffering as
well. My opinion of Pro-choice is this....and has been for awhile
now.....the choice is not to engage in the behavior unless one is
willing to take the responsibility for the child that may be
conceived. Why does this helpless child have to suffer and die for
others' transgressions? The choice is to resist the behavior, or
accept the responsibility of giving the life a chance to be. I have
just viewed the Priests for Life website and was so saddened by the
images of aborted babies. I have always been anti-abortion, but want
to try to do something about it. Maybe there is a way I can help
with my parish.
I would like to begin receiving Father Pavone's newsletter
bi-weekly. Thank you
very much and may God bless you for your work. –
You guys are doing a fantastic
job of telling the people the grim truth about abortions. Before I
saw this site, I was against abortion, but I never thought that much
about it. Your site has changed me. When I saw the gruesome pictures
of little children and abortion tools, I was sickened. I wanted to
cry, to shout and to vomit all at once. I’m positive that if this
information was spread to everyone, abortions would be made illegal,
for no one can look at these poor murdered children and say they are
You are truly a wonderful and
brilliant man! I was always pro-life, but now I feel an obligation
that I have to do something to help stop this crime against humanity
and our freedom. I have done a lot of research on abortion and found
the most information on your site. It is important that all the
world sees these horrifying images. I remember the first time I saw
these pictures. It was back in December and I wept. I cried more
than I had ever cried before. I am so angry that people just don’t
care or they don’t want to think abortions. The truth is, abortions
are happening everyday. So many innocent children are being punished
because of a selfish and cruel decision. I am amazed that doctors
and nurses can stomach doing this. I looked at these pictures every
week just to remind me that it is still happening. This problem
won’t go away. I was very proud to hear President Bush say he want
to get rid of Partial-Birth Abortion. To me, that is pure murder.
All of it is. I will always to end abortion and I want to say thank
you for helping me see the whole picture. God bless you and all who
I am 20 years old and am in
college. For a research project, we had to pick a topic that meant a
lot to us and then find out more information on it. I picked
Catholics against abortion, but that was a very broad subject. So by
accident, I stumbled across the web page for Priests for Life. I
read some articles you wrote about wanting to show the world what an
abortion is. When I saw these pictures, I was overwhelmed with
emotions. I was upset, angry, disgusted, and at the same time glad
because there are people like you. I think it is very important that
we as Christians should help put an end to this crime against God. I
still see the images of the babies in my head. I was always Pro-Life
but I never wanted to think about it. Now I am forced to. Thank you
so much for doing what you do. You are truly an inspiration to me. I
now do everything I can to stop abortions. I even stood in a three
hour Life Chain in the beginning of October holding signs to promote
Pro-Life. I even talked a friend out of an abortion, even though she
wanted nothing to do with the child. She ended up having a
miscarriage in her fourth month and was very upset. It is very
important to get the Pro-Choice Catholics to turn around. Maybe then
will we finally put an end to all abortions across the world. God
bless you and all involved with your project.
I’m shocked by these
photos...How can this be an issue? What is there to discuss? Right
or wrong? Doesn’t being human entitle someone to enough decency to
automatically think it’s wrong. We could compare this to so many
other things...Like killing our neighbor...that’s considered
illegal...What’s the difference? These photos make me want to run
around with posters and pictures begging women and they’re doctors
to stop this cruel act. I’m pregnant and due in July...It’s such a
wonderful experience to have this beautiful person growing inside of
me. I wish I could save all these precious babies....I was
originally brought to the Priests for Life site by the articles on
NFP, but I decided to read about abortion to satisfy a curiosity.
After seeing the images of the aborted CHILDREN (not fetuses like
they are usually referred to), I am horrified. How could anyone
advocate abortion after viewing these images? I feel sickened just
thinking of it. It was stated in one of the articles that people
would be offended by broadcasting these pictures. I would compare it
to the movie Schindler's List. I in no way enjoyed watching the
suffering of the Jews during the holocaust and thought that it was
rather tasteless. But, the truth hurts. And, as I might add,
Schindler's List was critically acclaimed. I feel ashamed that I had
the curiosity to even view the pictures, but it has definitely
strengthened my position on abortion. No matter how the child was
conceived, planned or unplanned or even by something as terrible as
rape, a child is a great blessing and should not be wasted.
Hi. I am a devout Catholic and
mother of 3 young girls, all under 6 years. I too think it is a good
thing that you have pictures of those poor dear aborted babies on
your site. I personally have never had an abortion, I have always
thought it is a terrible thing to do......Like I said before, I have
always been against abortion, but until January of this year I never
really spoke out against it. You see, these kind of pictures you
have on your site are exactly what sparked the pro-life spirit in
My Church had asked in our
bulletin for parishioners to come to pray the Rosary for an end to
abortion and afterwards had a candle light vigil at the big white
abortion cross out front of our Church. I attended both, and then
they said we could stay to see the film, "Silent Scream" at the
Church Hall. I and a few other brave souls (all 10 or 15 of us who
stayed were all a little apprehensive at seeing dead aborted babies
for the first time) decided to stay for the film viewing. I can
honestly say I was absolutely disgusted, mortified and extremely
saddened beyond words at what the film showed. I couldn't help but
cry, there was no holding back the tears, what happened to those
poor innocent babes was beyond description. ... It was then that I
got mad and decided I would step up to the plate and do my part to
stop abortion. Seeing those pictures was what I needed to open my
eyes to the desperate plight of those poor innocent little sweet
babes …. If those pictures can light a forest fire in my heart and
soul like that, I am sure they will have that effect on other
lukewarm men and women who call themselves "pro-life" but sit back
and do nothing against the terrible atrocities of abortion, as I had
After the film at the Church Hall, the ladies who led the evening
asked us to take copies of the "2001 Revised list of Corporations
funding abortion" from the St. Antonius Institute for Catholic
Education in Business… I was so enraged with abortion after seeing
those poor dead babies’ pictures that I vowed that I would never
again knowingly give a red cent to any organization or person who
has, any ties financially or otherwise to the abortion industry. I
made many copies of that list and I carry it wherever I go and
distribute copies to people who want them. I don’t buy a lot of
products I used to because they are on "the list", I have to
improvise and get products that are not as good, but that sometimes
cost more, and I don’t patronize many of the stores I used to
because they are on "the list", I do pay more for things and go out
of my way to get things, it has changed my life, but my being a
little inconvenienced in the pocket book and in my time is small
change when you consider what those poor little babies go through at
the hands of the abortionists.
So, what I have to say is this: Keep up the good work and
don’t stop showing those heart and gut wrenching pictures! You are
so right when you say, "America
will not end abortion until America SEES abortion."
I have been viewing your images
of abortion on-line.
I am horrified. I live in
What can I do to help save babies? – Marlene
I have never witnessed something
so horrific in my life...I was pro-life before I saw these images
but I never realized how unspeakably gruesome the procedure is...I
knew it was wrong but these images...I could not stop
crying....thank you for these images...I shall pray more because of
them... – Deron
Why aren't these [photos]
getting out more? They need to be cycling through the e-mails and
getting out to the public more. These are so perfect that even I was
moved by them. The thing on here that tore at my heart and brought
me to tears was the story written by reformed ob/gyn Dr. Tony
Levatino. The story is the most powerful thing I have ever read. I
just sobbed and sobbed knowing that a baby can be murdered in 15
minutes and for only $600!!! It needs to be produced as much as the
photos!! What a story he has to tell, what an impact on my
life...maybe it's time I got back out there and protested a few
pro-choice centers again.
Thank you for having the courage to do what you do. May our
Heavenly Father bless you in your work, and may He give you more
workers to get those photos and stories out! --Laura,
I visited your web site after
seeing your program on our local Catholic television station. My
wife and I are fully against the practice of abortion. I did not
realize the scope of the inhumanity of the abortion procedure until
I viewed the photos. I knew the operation was designed to terminate
life, but when I saw the photos I wanted to weep. How could our
government allow for the murder of such small innocents? I am
horrified at the wrath the lord will visit upon any nation that
would sanction these actions. I feel I must become involved in any
way that I could be of assistance. My family is living on a fixed
income and we can’t offer any meaningful donations of money. I do
have time and computer skills that may be of use. Please let us know
if we could be of any help to stop this mass murder.
I went and looked at a few
pictures and I feel nauseated, as we all should!
This is an important reality fix!
quarter with President Washington, our nation's founding father, on
it with the words, "liberty", with a tiny arm and leg near that
image, is just powerful.
We must see this to face it, and while I have not supported
abortion, this is working on me to become more active against
abortion. We must have
these pictures to clear the clouds of constant brainwashing from the
media in support of abortion.
I looked at these pictures, particularly the later trimester
photographs, and the holocaust jumped out at me.
I am a well educated; 36 year
old farther of 2 adorable children (both daughters) aged 6 and 2. I
had not slept well in 2 days. I openly wept with my wife as we both
hugged each other consoling ourselves when we were reading your
website. I can never describe my emotions in words, what I felt when
I was browsing the graphic pictures of these "murdered" children. I
will never understand how the word "abortion" will even cross the
mind of a parent or a parent-to-be. I can understand that some
people may adopt desperate measures in desperate times. If the
resources and the information is available to them, I am certain
that most of tem would look into acceptable alternatives than
killing their babies.
Anyway, I sent emails to all my friends and family to write
to their local congressional rep. urging to vote in support for the
ban on partial-birth abortion bill. Also, I included a link to your
website for their information. The feedback is absolutely 100%
positive so far. Almost all of them did not know what abortion
really meant and I helped them open their eyes.
I want to know how I can help in my area in anyway to stop
this carnage. I will volunteer for counseling, picket, protest and
anything else you may advise. Just let me know.
Lastly, but by no means the least, I applaud and thank you,
for your tireless humanitarian service for these unborn babies and
the countless mothers and fathers you must have saved from the
eternal abyss of darkness.
Thank you, thank you so much for
showing me what it really means to be pro-life. I had no idea until
I accidentally found this site while looking for facts and articles
on abortion and such for an essay that I had to do for my school; I
plan to share this info with my peers and teachers. This is a
wonderful thing that you are doing and I think that the public
should be made more aware of what abortion really is. I don't think
very many people realize that abortion isn't something to take so
lightly. It is sick what people are doing to these unborn/preborn
children and I think more people should be made aware of what
abortion really is. Thank you for showing me what pro-life means. My
goal in writing this book is to contribute in abolishing abortion,
and I feel that including pictures will make a deeper impact coupled
with personal accounts.
I viewed a few of the photos posted on the site, and as a
mother of a two year old and pregnant with my second, those few left
me sobbing with grief. It has given me an even deeper determination
to bring an end to abortion.
Thank you for your time. –
I know abortions were serious
but I did not know that they were that bad. Thank u for opening my
eyes to the sin of the world. I will do my best to open other to the
evils of abortions.
