Pro-lifers to protest Obama Inauguration in D.C. with graphic abortion images
January 10, 13 (LifeSiteNews.com) – President Obama will be inaugurated for his second term in Washington D.C. on January 21, and two groups of pro-life activists have vowed to be there to “expose” the president’s extreme record on abortion.
Operation Rescue and Created Equal are co-sponsoring a protest that will see pro-life activists holding graphic abortion signs at two locations in the city. At the same time trucks plastered with pro-life billboards will drive through the streets of the city.
The billboards show a photo of an unborn baby aborted at 15 weeks accompanied by Bible verses reading either, “Rescue those being led away to death,” or “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.”
From 10:00am – 12:30PM, the protesters will be located at Union Station at the intersection of Delaware Ave NE and Columbus Circle NE. Then, from 1:30PM – 4:00PM, they will be at the US Navy Memorial Plaza, at 701 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, DC.
A statement from Created Equal observes that on Inauguration Day, President Obama will put his hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States.
“That same Constitution that he is swearing to uphold reads that we are to ‘secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,’” says the statement. “Our posterity is a reference to our offspring – preborn children.”
“Because Obama supports abortion and infanticide, he will violate his oath of office the moment he puts his hand on the Bible,” continued the statement. “The irony is Obama will swear to protect the rights of future preborn children while at the same time defending the injustice of abortion.
“Many Americans have become numb to the fact that an entire generation has been lost to abortion. We hear their cries for justice, and we will not be silent. This hypocrisy will not go unnoticed. We will expose it.”

Pro-life activists have labeled President Obama the “most pro-abortion president in U.S. history.” The president has expressed his support for abortion-on-demand with taxpayer funding up to the point of birth, and has opposed any form of restriction on the procedure. In the Illinois senate he also voted repeatedly against a bill that would have protected babies born alive after failed abortions from being left to die. A federal version of that bill, the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, later passed with overwhelming bipartisan support.
