I'm not American and didn't know anything about "Operation Rescue" and their "Truth Trucks", but I'm learning.

Actually, I'd object to an 8 foot tall gaping, sliced open vagina after an episiotomy during childbirth plastered all over a truck as well.
Not to mention a gaping c section with bladder, intestines and various sundry internal organs spilling out on either side....
Some things require minimum age requirements due to their graphic nature. Would you say if it's a political message this standard need not apply?

Guess you covered that form first hand knowledge.
I'll take the c section one then --- maybe throw in my first miscarriage, where they didn't get all the fetal and placental tissue out and I hemorrhaged clots the size of a grapefruit- those sure would be purty about 4 foot across in diameter.
And let's not forget a good crowning shot during delivery.

I really appreciate the warning - I'm skipping over anything like this at the moment, lol!


Currently, pictures of dead fetii would be so upsetting to me that I would probably throw up. And then go and punch the person who made me look at them.

See, THESE are the types of experiences that make me feel it is BARBARISM to seek to remove women's choice. No one should be forced to continue a process that can have that much of a risk. Especially since NO ONE knows who's going to be that statistic.

"C) I could easily rent a truck, blow up picture of my spread thighs, smeared with blood, and my vulva before it was sewn...everyone could see the cuts and tears that started near the clitoris and went all the way down to almost my rectum.
