If abortion is no big deal, why doesn't NBC show one on TV - a real, live, up close abortion? In 40 years, no network or "news" organization has been willing to do that. That's because abortion IS a huge deal - it's the bodily dismemberment of a small and weak member of the human race, and it is an abusive, dangerous, and sometimes deadly procedure for the woman.

That’s a GREAT idea! I don’t think I could watch it because I believe the baby to be an individual human life created by God. But for those who believe that it is just a nuisance blob if tissue; why not?

Chi Chaz, when I was much younger, I actually viewed several films that depict live abortions taking place, and they are very hard to watch. But I didn't feel I could truly understand the issue until I did. Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a former abortionist, produced several of them - "Silent Scream", "Eclipse of Reason" and "Hard Truth" were three that I saw and will never forget as long as I live. Imagine how cold and callous those who kill babies for a living every day have to be.

I have heard of Silent Scream, but haven’t seen it yet. And I actually have tried to see things from their side, just to keep an open mind and see if I’m missing something. I just can’t wrap my brain around how killing a new human is ever something good. And I count that as a blessing.

"Eclipse of Reason" is particularly powerful, as it features Charleton Heston as the narrator and the one who introduces the film. Dr. Nathanson shows you the instruments of killing that he used when he was an abortionist, and tells you exactly what is going on during the abortion. It's an abortion of a woman who is about 4 1/2 months pregnant, and he had received permission to film it from a former colleague. That man later viewed the film himself and quit doing abortions forever.
The NBC series "Parenthood"' has drawn raves from TV critics this season for a storyline about a 40-something mother fighting cancer. Then on Jan. 1, NBC asked viewers to tune in the following Tuesday for an "unforgettable" new episode. A teenager would get an abortion at Planned Parenthood. Such is NBC's definition of "parenthood."

Drew, one of show's leading teenager characters, has an ex-girlfriend named Amy who comes back to tell him "I'm pregnant." The high school seniors go to the Planned Parenthood clinic, and the scene plays like a political commercial.

The counselor says, "If you decide to...
