Pro-choice writer: Abortion pictures have “humanized” preborn, changed public opinion

Pro-choice author, Alesha E. Doan, wrote a book condemning pro-lifers. But in the following quote, she acknowledges how prolifers’ use of pictures has “humanized” preborn children and changed the way the public views abortion:

The entire pro-life movement has made substantial gains in humanizing a fetus at every stage of pregnancy and helping to establish personal rights for the unborn. Enlarged pictures of aborted fetuses and other graphic illustrations are commonly displayed at protests and may help contribute to a changing, more humanized, conceptualization of a fetus and in turn help sway public approval against the permissibility of using elective abortion services to resolve unwanted pregnancies.
