Is this what you mean?

22-week-old aborted baby
Priests for Life has launched a special project called "Is This What You Mean?" It aims to:

 1) Reveal the nature of the abortion procedure to the public, and

 2) Challenge public officials and candidates who support the legality of abortion to admit what abortion is.

The idea is simple. It's not a partisan trick or threat, nor a complex argument, Senator Barack Obama but a call for honesty. Just confronting the abortion supporter, especially the public candidate or office holder with the reasonable appeal: Let's be sure we understand each other here. When you say "abortion", is this what you mean? We just want to make sure we're talking about the same thing.

Go to this page to learn more, to watch YouTube videos and read quotes from abortionists, and learn what an abortion procedure is like.

Then spread the word. Announce this on your own website or blog. Email friends. Use the information in town hall meetings, editorials, etc. Ask your liberal (er - 'progressive') friends: Is this what your candidate supports? Is this what you support? Is this what you mean?

Very informative post. It is important to show people exactly what an abortion is. Fr. Pavone works tirelessly to do just that. Another resource is Human Life International. The American people need to be made aware of where Senator Obama stands on abortion. He supports it through all nine months of pregnancy - even partial-birth abortion! Keep exposing this.

More Catholic bloggers need to post photos showing what an abortion actually does to a baby. When people see it for themselves, they will stop supporting the murder of the unborn.

I tried leaving a voter's guide o the bulletin board of my parish and it was promptly torn down. This guide wasn't advocating one political party or another or one candidate or another. It's purpose was solely to inform people of how the candidates from both parties have voted on abortion.

You wouldn't believe how things have deteriorated in our diocese. Paul Melanson of la salette journey was rebuked a few years back when he tried to make people aware that an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist at his parish was publically supporting abortion and pro-abortion candidates.

Disheartening no?
