This spring, people in one of the busiest intersections in the world will be confronted with the humanity of the unborn person in the form of a 4D ultrasound.
On May 4, the pro-life Christian group Focus on the Family (FotF) will present a live 4D ultrasound of an unborn baby in New York City’s Times Square as part of its pro-life event “Alive from New York.”
This is the kind of ultrasound we’re talking about. It’s 3D, but also shows movement, like a movie.
That means that people in the same state where legislators cheered after legalizing late-term abortions up till birth will have the opportunity to witness an unborn baby doing unborn baby things like thumb-sucking, kicking, and hiccupping.
“Most people have never seen a 4-D ultrasound,” FotF president Jim Daly said in a recent interview with LifeSiteNews. “It’s our hope that after seeing these videos in Times Square, people will have no doubt that every life is made in the image of God.”
“It’s our prayer that Alive from New York will be an event used to help change hearts and minds regarding life,” Daly continued.
Sometimes the best remedy is simply getting people to look at a truth that they may never have encountered or even contemplated before. English abolitionist William Wilberforce once spent three hours detailing the horrors of slavery to his fellow members of the House of Commons. Afterwards, he famously is said to have told the chamber, “Having heard all of this, you may choose to look the other way, but you can never again say that you did not know.”
Maybe, just maybe, seeing the reality of an unborn human being might change some hearts and minds in the Big Apple.
