I am in two minds about showing people footage of abortions. Just because something is icky, does not mean it is morally wrong. But, on the other hand, some people *do* think that something which elicits a strong "ick" response from them must, in some fashion, be really wrong or it would not have affected them.

One could also say that showing people what goes on in abattoirs is unfair, and that it implies that eating animals is morally wrong. But, again, this does not really follow.
