Abortion is Traumatizing

I just read this article on Life Site News about how pro-life protesters in Britain were arrested for displaying a graphic image of an aborted baby outside of an abortion clinic. The reason? Patients were "traumatized and upset" by the image. Well, they should be. Abortion is traumatizing - to the baby who is brutally killed, to the mother who often lives with guilt for years afterward, and to those who see these pictures and still have an inkling of humanity left in them. What I want to know is this: if the image of abortion is traumatizing enough to arrest someone over, why isn't the real thing treated the same way? When people see pictures of starving children in third world countries, they generally don't just want to shove the pictures away because they are unpleasant, and then do nothing about it. They realize that something is very wrong and that they need to do what they can to fix it. So it should be with abortion images. If the picture of a torn, bloody body is unpleasant to you, why do you just shove it away? Why don't you fight to stop this gruesome procedure, now that you have seen what it really is?
