Pro-Life Activists Plan Display Along Inaugural Parade Route
This message is from the Christian Newswire. Tomorrow, the most adamant prochoice President and/or politician in history will because the President of the United States. He not only supports abortion, he also supports partial birth abortion and voted against saving a child born alive from abortion. It doesn't get much more horrific than that. The baby in the picture I have added is a 4 month fetus. Many abortions are done at this stage. For those who believe in choice, it is more convenient to call this child alternate names, such as zygote, blob of protoplasm, not human. You tell me. You might notice on my side bar a counter that keeps track of the abortions done in the deloped world since 2001. It just keeps on ticking and ticking and ticking...what has the world and humanity been robbed of? What must God think of such a thing.
Pro-life Activists Plan Major Display and Vigil Along the Inaugural Parade Route on Tuesday, January 20
WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- The activists have been given 80 feet along the north side of Pennsylvania Ave. NW in front of the Canadian Embassy.
They plan to hold three large banners which state:
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" -- Dr. Martin Luther King
"President Obama social justice and human rights begin in the womb."
"53,000,000 children have died through abortion...President Obama stop the violence."
Special Note: The group had planned to show a display of 25 large pictures showing the development of life from conception to birth. However, the Secret Service made late changes on the wording of prohibited items into the Inaugural Parade and the pictures were barred.
The pro-life activists have been granted a permit by the National Park Service and will be allowed into the Inaugural Parade early and then ushered to their location by National Park Service police.
The group will pass through the Secret Service checkpoint at 6:30 A.M. which is located at 3rd and C Street NW.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,
"While millions are celebrating the Inauguration of President Obama, it is critical to be a voice and witness for those who have no voice. That is the 53,000,000 innocent children that have been lost through abortion.
"We have come to Inaugural Parade to speak truth to power and remind President Obama to stand for social justice and human rights for all Americans.
"One day after the Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday it is important to remind this President that 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere' and violence is never an answer to social problems."
