SOMETIMES it takes the shock factor for people to wake up to reality.
So, as shocking as the documentary, My Foetus, may be, the decision to screen it on ABC TV might be what is needed to make many Australians wake up to the fact that thousands of unborn lives are being killed each year through abortion.
As Federal Health Minister Tony Abbott said, ‘It’s an ugly business and it probably doesn’t hurt for the Australian people to understand just what is going on in clinics all around Australia.’
Many people thought Mel Gibson’s movie The Passion of the Christ was too violent, but its success in highlighting Christianity to wider society is undeniable.
Perhaps My Foetus will have a similar life-changing impact on Australian audiences.
