The good thing is; we humans become unreceptive toward graphic content if exposed to enough examples over time, eventually those pamphlets will be totally useless.

I think you should say " Angendas employ Emotional Advertising almost all the time" rather than the first sentence. That would be closer to the truth. Emotional advertising is used to sell movies, books, and services. It is not exclusive to Agendas/ world views.

Dunno, I'd report it to your school's administrators anyway. There's likely a local ordinance against distributing bullshit within a certain proximity of a public school. I know there is in the People's Republic of Maryland, not sure about Cali, but I'd expect something similar.

Right, I understand, perhaps I should have phrased it differently.

The pamphlet uses shock-based emotional advertising, a tactic employed very commonly by agenda driven campaigns, wherein the objective is to steer people toward a given conclusion or action.

I've always found it pathetic when they think showing graphic images constitutes a point for their side.

A heart bypass or amputation looks equally gross yet no one would argue that we should stop with the procedure because it looks gross.

It's a freaking medical procedure of course it's going to look very graphic!

RE: Pro Life Religious Pamphlet
It's an attempt to shock, disgust and disturb those who view the pamphlet to rally support against the supposed issue contained within, when contrasted against bypasses, transplants, amputation or whatever else you could come up with, the same logic can be applied, if it were not for widespread knowledge of their benefits, it'd probably work too.

You hit the nail on the head. I found the pictures utterly revolting, but that's because I am not a medical professional who is exposed to blood, flesh, organs, and tissue every single day to the point that they become desensitized to it. I once had the opportunity to observe from a gallery, in an operating room at a teaching hospital, a surgery to remove a benign tumor from a patient. Even though no one would disagree with procedures like this being performed, as a non-medical person there were times in which I thought I would faint or throw up. Humans have a natural revulsion to the sight of organs, tissue, and body fluids, and that pamphlet plays to that human instinct without making any relevant argument or valid points.

I'm no lawyer, but here in Utah, my siidewalk is part of my property - if it snows and I don't shovel the walk, and somebody slips and suffers an injury on my icy sidewalk, they can sue me. Same for public property. I could sue a restaurant or store or school if I slip and fall on their icy sidewalk because it's their property.

The street is different - not part of my private property and not part of any business' property (but parking lots are).

Maybe it works like that in your state, in which case, the sidewalk is part of the school's property.

Pics are just fine. Don't like the looks of an abortion, don't have one.
What else is there to say?
This is a slight tangent I know, but I disagree that pro-choice is a sugar-coated term. There are people who are pro-abortion and people that are anti-abortion - regarding themselves. The term "pro-choice" is entirely different in that it describes a person's viewpoint about the role of legislation as it applies to all individuals. Pro-choice people are also either pro-abortion or anti-abortion (more often the former, but not always) regarding themselves in addition to being pro-choice.
