Are the videos on Planned Parenthood making an impact? For those that are already pro-life, the gruesome facts of abortion are part of the reason that they’re pro-life. The ones that these videos are targeting are the fence-sitting people who are pro-choice. You know the ones, those that say they are personally against abortion but that they wouldn’t stop someone else from getting one. These videos are intended to get those people to firmly join the pro-life side and restrict if not eliminate abortion.
When the first video came out, it made quite a splash and it was powerful. When the second video came out, I thought, “Wow, they made sure to get more than one source” and they had to, since the first thing that Planned Parenthood could say was that this didn’t happen in multiple places– it was just this one doctor. Now there are rumblings that there are even worse videos waiting in the wings ready to come out.
Will this have an effect on these moderates?
