Or, does it?
I don’t know, I could be wrong. But, if there was no name or story attached [CNN] to the photo of murdered Michigan pro-life activist Jim Pouillon (above), I might’ve thought that this kindly-looking gentlemen was just another Obama supporter waiting on a presidential motorcade making its way toward a town hall meeting on health care…
I could be really wrong, in that, Mr. Pouillon TRULY WAS a supporter of the President and believed in Mr. Obama’s promises to lower the abortion rate…
just perhaps, I’m right in saying that this stalwart defender of life chose to visually warn anyone who’d pay attention what the true result of a Obama presidency would mean for the most vulnerable among us–as this undoctored photo below appears to indicate…
Whatever the reason for CNN’s pictorial adjustment and omission, (be that Obama promotion and/or fear of offending readers with the reality of procured abortion), it seems to me that the measure of a man’s life should be represented in full, and especially, at his death…
What do you think?
Here’s a proper representation:
[my emphasis, my comments]
CNN had this to say after a deranged Christian took the life of Dr. George Tiller this past year:
Tiller’s slaying drew condemnation from supporters, from some of those who tried to shut down his practice [To my knowledge every major pro-life organization in the United States publicly and unequivocally condemned the killing of George Tiller. And I know of no authentic pro-life proponent (including locals who sought to shut down Tiller’s abortion mill in Kansas) who wouldn’t condemn such an act…] and from President Obama, who just two weeks ago urged Americans to seek “common ground” [see: Religious wedge phraseology here…] on the issue of abortion.
“However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence,” [Yes, a pro-life position exactly: 50,000,000 “heinous acts of violence”.] Obama said in a statement issued by the White House.
The shooting prompted U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to direct federal marshals to “offer protection to other appropriate people and facilities around the nation,” according to a statement from the Department of Justice. [Now, I’m wondering if Attorney General Holder will direct federal marshals to offer this same protection for other “appropriate people” within the pro-life movement? People, such as, Jim Pouillon…]
Naw, I’m wrong.
“Thank you Jim for caring enough to stand firm for the innocent unborn–even amidst the powerful currents of the culture of death and America’s general indifference–in giving up your life for the sake of these little ones…”
Jim Pouillon R.I.P. (within the river of life…)
