Up until a month ago, a billboard near my home promoted a charity that does facial reconstruction for poor children overseas. They do so with a twenty foot tall photo of an infant with pronounced cleft lip and palate.
Maybe I’m more sensitive to this kind of thing than others (holes where holes should not be in organic matter - sometimes even inorganic! - is one of my phobias), but I couldn’t help thinking that the people who designed this billboard (and created related magazine ads with NINE such children) probably had the same train of thought as abortion protesters with their large color post-abortion photos.
What do you all think? I’d love to get some saner heads thinking about this.
