Graphic posters serve a purpose

Recently, the Pro-Life Action League visited numerous locations throughout the Chicago area as part of our 12th annual Face the Truth Tour, during which dozens of volunteers lined major intersections with large signs showing the mutilated victims of abortion.

We realize that it is shocking to most people to see pictures of the mangled bodies of aborted babies. What is worse, though, is that abortion is allowed to kill over 3,300 innocent children every day in America. Some people are outraged that while we are displaying the graphic pictures along a road for drivers to see, young children may see them too, even though we place highly visible warning signs alerting drivers that there are graphic abortion pictures ahead, enabling them to take an alternate route.

Parents can explain to their children that these aborted babies have been hurt, and that we are trying to prevent this from happening. If we continue to hide these unborn victims of abortion from sight with the excuse that children shouldn't have to see such violence, we fail in our mission to tell the truth and protect human life.

We urge all Daily Herald readers to learn more about abortion and about the alternatives to abortion, and to become involved in the fight to restore respect for human life at all stages.
