Do fetus images tell us anything?

I was stopped at a busy intersection in Calgary this summer when a white, one-ton truck came into sight. Emblazoned across its cargo box was a large and very graphic depiction of an aborted fetus. This image was startling, precisely because it was so unexpected. It kick-started a train of thought in me that was an unhealthy distraction for someone in the midst of busy traffic.

Still, I had to admire someone with such conviction and determination in working to get his pro-life message out -- a refreshing change from the masses of Canadians who habitually fall into the I'd-rather-not-say category.
