Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) spoke at an event organized by the Family Research Council to mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade this morning and urged anti-choice advocates to plaster pictures of babies and aborted fetuses to recruit more people to their cause. “I’m a big believer in visuals,” she said. “Most Americans learn through pictures and so if you have some brochures that you leave on the table at your dorm or put it on the bulletin board by the elevator of a growing baby. Now some people put the picture of the aborted fetus, that gets your attention too.” Nearly 90 percent of abortions occur in the first 12 weeks of a pregnancy, however, and look nothing like the fetuses depicted on anti-abortion propaganda posters.
