An Unborn Child Speaks
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. It certainly is when telling the story of an unborn babys development. So what happens when you combine the visual with words of the mighty pen? Im convinced that both mediums can be doubly powerful in changing hearts and minds about abortion.
I recently came across a brief videojust over four minutescalled Interview with an Unborn Child. The film contains breathtaking images of the unborn child inside the womb and is combined with a voiceover of a compelling poem authored by Dr. Mojdeh Shirvanian.
Heres what makes the poem special: Its a result of beautiful images while demonstrating how an unborn child would respond to facing an abortion. We get to hear the babys firsthand response with his voice in the clip.
Heres a portion of the chilling interview:
My loudest cry is in silence. My most beautiful dreams. Turn into nightmares. My greatest pain will not reach the ears of anyone. Not even my mother. I will never know who I am. Only He who has made me different from all others will know me. He sees my talents and who I would become. Nobody else will ever know me. Not even my mother . . . >And except for death, no one will kiss me. Not even my mother.
Its absolutely heartbreaking to hear these words within the context of the deaths of 1.2 million babies every year. Youll have to watch the video in its entirety to see what comes next. Click here.
The perspective portrayed in the video isnt one youll hear from Planned Parenthood or the rest of the abortion industry, especially while theyre occupied with cashing in on a violent and deadly business. Yet, its the childs voicehis perspectivethats a necessary part of the conversation on abortion.
Facts are a stubborn thingover 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 thats thoughtful and engaging. In fact, her video is part of a campaign to educate womenparticularly in Iran about abortions 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, its 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.

PS Many of you contacted Notre Dame about their promotion of pro-abortion organizations to students looking for summer internships (see email here). Several of you passed along Notre Dames full-throated denial of everything. However, the facts have been well documented thanks to Bill Dempsey, Executive Director of Project Sycamore, the sole organization devoted to nourishing and preserving the Catholic identity of Notre Dame. Heres a link to information documenting that Notre Dame has indeed funded past internships of pro-abortion organizations, as well as other details mentioned in my previous email. I hope you will take the time to read his detailed report. Click here.
