It’s no secret at this point that the State of New York has become one of the least child-friendly states in the entire country with their recent legislation that allows for late-term abortions to be legal (among other things).
As a response to this, a pro-life group called Focus on the Family has decided to show a 4D ultrasound image (like a 3D ultrasound but with moving images showing the baby three-dimensionally in real-time) of an unborn child in Times Square.
Focus on the Family president Jim Daly told LifeSiteNews: “Over 40 years ago, our founder, Dr. James Dobson, recognized that the family was in trouble. Prompted by the Lord, he left a very comfortable position in academia to start Focus on the Family. Our mission then – and now – is to help families thrive in Christ. We do this by providing help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design, and for parents to raise spiritually and emotionally healthy kids.”
All of that is fantastic. Quite fascinating that Dr. Dobson had the foresight to understand the Left’s war against the family. Of course, 40 years ago was just 1979, so Roe v. Wade had been the law of the land for some years at that point, but it is quite interesting to see someone back then be able to at least somewhat foretell what lied ahead in the road the country was taking.
And the message of focusing the family around the image of God, His plan for us and what He commands out of a marriage and family is also fantastic. It is rare to see that sort of message, in large part because the Left owns the news media which is adamant about taking away an unborn, or even newborn child’s very humanity.
In any case, Daly continued: “Times Square is known as ‘The Crossroads of the World’ and we’re at a crossroad as a nation regarding life. Do we really want to be part of the Abortion Axis of Evil – like China, North Korea and Vietnam that allows abortion for any reason after 20 weeks? We’re hearing from people all over the country who are disgusted by the blatant disregard for life. Enough is enough!”
I really like that name: “Abortion Axis of Evil”. It really encapsulates precisely what these countries are. They are akin to the Axis of World War II with Nazi Germany, fascist Italy and imperialist Japan. But beyond even that, it is absolutely, unequivocally evil. So that name fits the shoe just right.
Daly also noted that “most people have never seen a 4-D ultrasound. It’s our hope that after seeing these videos in Times Square, people will have no doubt that every life is made in the image of God. It’s our prayer that ALIVE FROM NEW YORK will be an event used to help change hearts and minds regarding life. We hope you’ll join us!”
Before writing this article, I did not know that 4D ultrasounds were even a thing. I knew very well about the standard 2D ultrasound, where there is a flat, 2D image of a baby living inside the womb. I also knew about 3D ultrasounds, where the image is three-dimensional but completely still. However, I did not know about 4D ultrasounds before this (in large part because I am not about to become a parent any time soon).
But this 4D ultrasound I think can be a very effective tool both for expecting parents to see their baby and for pro-life advocates who insist that the being growing inside a woman’s womb is a live human virtually no different from a baby that has already been born (as the image above suggests).
Daly went on to talk about what Focus on the Family has already managed to achieve, saying that over 15 years, they have saved “an estimated 425,000 babies by placing ultrasound machines in high-abortion areas… When abortion-minded women see an image of their baby on a screen, research suggests that 54% of them will choose not to abort. Just last month at the March for Life, we announced a goal of saving a million lives by 2025. In the aftermath of the egregious NY legislation legalizing late-term abortion and the Virginia governor endorsing infanticide, we’re prayerfully hoping this will call greater attention to the plight of the preborn.”
Everything about this is fantastic, though I am concerned with what the pro-abortion crowd will do regarding this. The 4D ultrasound showing is set to take place sometime in May. Given that this is New York, especially New York City, I don’t doubt that pro-abortion people will look to somehow prevent this event from happening, either petitioning Bill de Blasio to not allow this showing of an ultrasound to occur or something else entirely, including even sabotaging the event somehow.
Pro-abortion people know very well that an ultrasound shows a baby’s humanity. It shows that what the woman is seeing right then and there is the growing of her very own child, who is very much alive. A 4D ultrasound, basically taking the more realistic images of a 3D ultrasound and combining that with 2D’s ability to show a live-feed of a baby further shows the humanity of an unborn child. It shatters the idea that what is growing inside a uterus is not a baby, a human or alive. It shatters the idea that what is being shown on screen can be equated to a cancerous tumor ready to be removed. It shatters the idea that it’s just a clump of cells randomly thrown together.
4D ultrasound shows a real baby, an alive baby, in real time. Anyone who sees an ultrasound, particularly a 4D ultrasound and still denies the viability or humanity of the baby on their screen is either evil or outright demented (or both). I would say moronic but I think even stupid people would recognize a human when they see one. This is not a matter of intelligence, but a matter of morality.
To deny that a human baby is alive inside the womb is evil, regardless of what someone might try and argue. It’s virtually no different from denying Jews their humanity during the Holocaust (and I tend to be careful about comparing things with the Holocaust, but with the fact that there have been over 60 million abortions since 1973 in the U.S. ALONE, I don’t think it’s too far-fetched to compare the issue of abortion with a sort of modern-day Holocaust that is actually worse than the original Holocaust).
That’s over 60 million lives ended by the evil belief that a human baby inside the womb is not a baby at all.
God willing, this showing of a 4D ultrasound will go off without a hitch and will actually get a lot of people in Manhattan thinking about what it is they are even discussing. It’s not an issue of women’s rights or women’s healthcare or women’s liberation from the “patriarchy”.
It’s no woman’s (or man’s) right to kill their own child at any stage of his or her life. It’s definitely not healthcare when you’re talking about the literal ending of a life. That’s the antithesis of healthcare. And it’s not women’s liberation from the “patriarchy” because this allows women to have as much sex as possible, leaving them with a feeling of emptiness and allowing themselves to essentially be used by men as much as possible.
What part of a woman feeling sad and sorry for herself after her 100th round of sex with some random guy is women’s liberation?
Let me tell you: that’s not liberation from anything. It’s the very opposite. It’s bondage to sin.
It’s bondage to the flesh. No human ever is liberated by something that ensnares them and puts them in bondage.
Hopefully, that idea runs through many people’s minds upon seeing a 4D ultrasound of what can only be described as a living human being.
