Why Graphic Signs?
Words have failed and we need to see the
horrible reality of
what we are doing to the weakest among
us in our nation. The
pictures we carry provide a pictorial essay and a real warning
of what horrors
befall a culture that turns its back on a Holy God.
Our children need to know that the choices they make and the
actions they take have lasting consequences.
Life and blessing are ours when we honor the Ten Commandments
found in God’s law. This is visibly
demonstrated by the picture of a live baby.
Contrast this with the graphic pictures of children ripped apart
by abortion, and you epitomize the cost of walking away from the
precepts and principles found in God’s law.
day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against
you that I have set before you life and death,
blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that
you and your children may live…”
Do These Pictures Traumatize Children?
No! They traumatize adults attempting to deny
the truth and the horror of abortion!
That’s right! These pictures do not traumatize our kids, no
matter how young they are. Children are not traumatized if they
have parents who teach that abortion is a terrible thing to do
to a child.
Our children who have grown up in this ministry
know that this is a picture of a baby who is hurt. They
also know that their mom and dad are doing everything they can
to help these voiceless children.
It is the parents who tell their children that
abortion is a good thing, or a “mother’s choice,” that
have difficulty explaining the graphic pictures to their
children. They are terrorized and traumatized because they have
no words to justify what their children have seen. The kids are
left wondering if mom and dad would “choose” to do the same
thing to them.

Is This Terrorism?
No! The truth brings terror only to the one who

avoid the horrible truth that these pictures

Christians who are telling the truth and living

fundamentalist, lunatic, terrorists.”
“Have I now become your enemy by telling you
truth?” (Galatians 4:23)
Is This Extreme?
No, graphic pictures are not extreme! This is

The horrible pictures of traffic accidents used
prolifically in driver’s education courses are
viewed as extreme. They teach what words cannot.
The pictures of Jews stacked like cords of wood

believe that God Himself will give our kids eyes
see the real horror of abortion.

Should We Carry Such Graphic Pictures?
