Graphic posters of aborted fetuses to line city streets

June 19, 2005

Posters displaying images of aborted fetuses will line the streets at the intersection of Walnut and West Washington streets on Monday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. when the anti-abortion group Defend Life stops in Hagerstown on its fifth annual Face the Truth Tour, the group's director said Friday.

The Baltimore-based group expects about 30 anti-abortion advocates to turn out, but has a total of 110 signs and invites locals to join the protest, director Missy Smith said.

The posters will be displayed every 10 feet and progress from an image of a healthy baby to in-utero fetuses to, after a warning sign, graphic photos of aborted fetuses, including one with its head removed. Protesters also will hand out pamphlets and answer questions, Smith said.

Hagerstown will be the group's second stop on a five-day tour through Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
