Honestly, I think we as a society are so short sighted. We don't care about starving children overseas, because its not in our own backyard. We don't actually see their suffering firsthand, so we try to pretend its not real. Someone complained at our local Christmas carols because a world vision volunteer asked if people would like to donate to help those less fortunate. The complainer said they don't like to hear about that sort of thing at the Christmas carols, it spoiled their night to be asked to think about those less fortunate.
there was a Jamie Oliver tv show ages ago that showed baby chickens being killed, and it caused a huge turn around in people only buying free range/ organic chicken & eggs because they actually saw the suffering first hand, it made it 'real' to them as to what actually happens that they are so ignorant to.
Yet I bet some of those people who only buy free range organic chicken, because of how sad it was to see the suffering of those baby chicks, are staunchly pro choice. I just cannot fathom how someone can be so callous and hard hearted towards a tiny little baby. I had a baby in the scu, I know hubbers who have had nicu babies, and it is so hard to fathom those tiny little humans being aborted. It just break my heart every time I think about it. It absolutely devastates me, that we as a society do nothing to defend those who are the most defenceless. I get that they have no rights yet but they are little human beings. I just find it so upsetting.
