I'll bet dollars to donuts it is the inclusion of a human fetus in the photo that singularly defines it's value as post-worthy at all. Take it out and you have the same monkey fetus many of us were exposed to in high school.
But, consider the innuendo of both fetuses together.
The ethical and humane discussion this can generate is its greatest contribution. In that regard Trina, I think you have a photo with potential.
However, if the elements of design are considered the photo falls short of the mark so... is it a candidate for manipulation?
This may clarify its message and produce more detailed responses than just initial shock.
Where can this photo go Trina? I'd love to see your ideas?
