Cognative dissonance award of the week...

...goes to Telegraph columnist Judith Woods who wrote about her reaction to seeing graphic pictures of aborted babies in a pro-life display in Belfast (last paragraph of article). Spotting "a sandwich board on which were photographs: gory, graphic, nausea-inducing images of aborted foetuses" Woods felt an " instinctive revulsion at these babies’ broken bodies being displayed for propaganda purposes" and concluded that "such desecration of the dead must be banned – everywhere."

That's right - the revulsion wasn't at the fact that these babies had been dismembered and killed, but that the photographs were on display in an attempt to save other babies from the same fate.

So, killing babies isn't a problem, but showing people what abortion looks like should be banned. Welcome to the Brave New World.
