Eduardo Verastegui: tolerating what can't be seen?

>> Thursday, February 10, 2011

Hello all,

I was struck this evening by something said in an Eduardo Verastegui video message posted to the Cry Action Blog. I don’t agree with all that is said in the video, at least not as it is put, but this portion conveys important and true food for thought that I would like to help pass on.

Speaking in defense of using graphic images of abortion to defend life, Mr. Verastagui says this:

Perhaps some of you question whether it is necessary to show a video like this, and my answer is the same that they give in schools about showing movies of the Nazi holocaust. Teachers don’t show these videos in order to emotionally manipulate students. They show them because the Nazi holocaust represents a terrible evil that words alone cannot describe. The holocaust of abortion is no different. We all instinctively know that abortion is something evil and if it is something so terrible that we can’t even see it, shouldn’t we perhaps not tolerate it either?

If you would like to see the whole video message (it’s about 4:24 long) you can see it on the Cry Action Blog by following this link.

God bless and veritas supra omnis!

Thanks for sharing Mark. I watched his presentation and it just makes me tremble to see those little ones get torn apart.
