The following come from an August 29 story on LifeSiteNews (originally on Live Action News).
“Abortion” might seem an odd search term for Pinterest. But since this explosive, relatively new social media site is increasingly becoming an addictive place to share opinions, beliefs, and ideas – in the form of images – we ought to check in and see just how abortion is doing.
At various times this year, Pinterest has been ranked the 4th and 5th most popular social network in the U.S. Worldwide, the site’s been ranked 14th on the popularity list.
Of the first 20 images to show up (as of 7:04pm EST today) on Pinterest when “abortion” is searched, a full 19 of them are pro-life. What’s more, these images represent a creative cross-section of truth – not simply a collection of bland talking points.
Take a look at the images below (chosen out of the top 20 Pinterest results), and add your own commentary on how you think these images could be effective.
This image was the current top “abortion” result on Pinterest. This image illustrates the stark reality that abortion brings death and does not solve what many people view as a “problem.” Instead, abortion creates its own host of true problems – chief among them the unnecessary death of an innocent child. It’s time we learned that death is never a solution…

There is no sin, I believe, that is greater than abortion. How many times have we heard people use the words to describe the birth of a child as a “gift from God?” Unfortunately, many of those same people seem to be able to justify abortion within their own moral vacuum , and also justify, albeit ungratefully, the return of the gift to the child’s Creator. What a slap in the face it is to God!
Wrong, the sin of Sacrilege is greater than abortion, and far too many of our ‘bishops” permit it by not enforcing Canon 915!
Viva Cristo Rey!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

I don’t understand why my comments didn’t go through for this article. I am pro-life……I am for the unborn and yet my comments didn’t get through…maybe if I feel like it I will try again and recall what I originally posted….God help you CCD
Kenneth, I don’t know of any sacrilege, except for any injury or violence against a sacred person such as a cleric or religious, that suffers the same cosequence as abortion for a Catholic… automatic excomunication!! While the Church might not label abortion as a sacrilege, per se, I believe in the eyes of God it’s just as serious. Perhaps since all life is sacred, the Church should update its definiton of sacrilege to include violence against the unborn.
