For as long as photography has existed, graphic images have helped to inform and shape the public conscience. They help take an abstraction and make it much more concrete. Atrocities that remains unseen are much easier to trivialize and much easier to ignore. The images used in the Abort73 website come from the Center for Bio-ethical Reform (CBR). CBR maintains the largest archive of abortion images in existence. All of their videos and photographs were taken inside real working abortion clinics, contracted under guarantees of anonymity, as certified in this signed statement from their photographer.
