They say a picture is worth a thousand words. It certainly is when telling the story of an unborn baby’s development. So what happens when you combine the visual with words of the mighty pen? Hopefully both mediums can be doubly powerful in changing hearts and minds about abortion.
A fellow pro-lifer sent me this video called Interview with an Unborn Child. The film contains breathtaking images of the unborn child inside the womb and is combined with a voice over of a compelling poem authored by Dr. Mojdeh Shirvanian. The poem is a result of beautiful images while demonstrating how an unborn child would respond to facing an abortion. We get to hear the baby’s firsthand response with his “voice” in the clip.
It’s absolutely heartbreaking to hear these words within the context of the deaths of 1.2 million babies every year. You’ll have to watch the video in its entirety to see what comes next. Click here.
The perspective portrayed in the video isn’t one you’ll hear from Planned Parenthood or the rest of the abortion industry, especially while they’re occupied with cashing in on a violent and deadly business. Yet, it’s the child’s voice—his perspective—that’s a necessary part of the conversation on abortion.
Facts are a stubborn thing—over 3,200 babies killed every day. Every 21-seconds another heart is stilled by abortion. The abortion industry prefers to hide this grim reality brought about by their greed for blood money, but Dr. Shirvanian hits it spot-on in a way that’s thoughtful and engaging. In fact, her video is part of a campaign to educate women—particularly in Iran— about abortion’s horrifying reality. Her message, however, is one that knows no borders.
Please watch this brief film and then share it with your family and friends through email, Facebook, and Twitter. When it comes to the battle of protecting the babies and their mothers, it’s tools like this that can melt the hearts of even the most dedicated pro-abortion person. May the pain in our hearts caused by abortion be one of the motivations for making this film go viral.
