Can children be protected from signs with photos of aborted fetuses? Protester seeks cert

Right. By all means, we must protect children from inanimate objects with pictures on them.

Political signs upset my children. We need to bad all political signs during elections.

No free speech in America.

Good lord! Last thing we want is for the little ones to know is the truth! Must be fed liberal lies.

There are a lot of truths, Marc, that I bet you would not like a person demonstrating graphically to your twelve year old children.

More children are harmed by abortion than are harmed by viewing photos of aborted babies.

No one seems to be concerned about exposing young children to graphis pictures of the consequnces of smoking such as diseased lungs etc. Those photos are up on billboards in my town. I've seen them on tobacco products too. So it seems that it isnt the gore factor that is of concern.

We were all over 12, but when I was in an all-girls, Catholic high school, we were required to attend a program, on campus during school hours, where an anti-abortion activist showed pictures of dismembered and otherwise dead fetuses. No advance parental consent - or even notice - was required, and no opportunity for a student to decline to attend, or even to decline to view the photos.

Punch line? A girl in my senior class got pregnant, and was expelled with one semester to go until graduation. As I recall, there were no arrangements made for her to finish and get her diploma after the birth of that "precious, innocent, defenseless, unborn child."

Very pro-life. Very Christian.

Ironic considering that Jesus' mom, Mary, was 16 years old and unwed when she got pregnant.
