The following comes from an Oct. 1 posting on ProLife Across America.
Our billboards featuring a baby alongside a fetal development fact have been repeatedly vandalized and damaged, according to Mary Ann Kuharski, Director of PROLIFE Across AMERICA.
Graphic graffiti including vulgar messages, such as “Kill the shrimp” scrawled over the face of a baby, has continually marred the ads located in the Bay and Eureka areas. In spite of surveillance cameras and warnings of prosecution by the outdoor ad company, the pro-life ads continue to be vandalized, as well as the structure displaying the ad.
The tender messages portraying the face of an infant, along with a fetal development fact, also offer an 800# hotline number, for those seeking pregnancy information, medical care, or post-abortion assistance. PROLIFE Across AMERICA, known as “The Billboard People” sponsors over 6500 billboards – appearing in over 40 states – each year. The two areas in California are the only places where the ads have met opposition.
“Our ads have proven to change hearts and save babies’ lives”, said director Mary Ann Kuharski, who restated the group’s intent to continue the billboard outreach, as funding allows. “We recently learned of three babies saved from abortion because of our ads and 800 hotline.
We are saddened that our tender messages have met with such organized opposition. So often, our message may be the only visible sign of hope and help to someone feeling abortion is their only “‘solution’.”
New pro-life billboards have gone up along with additional security measures but the crime continues to plague the pro-life messages. “We ask for prayers that not only can we continue to support billboards in this area but also for the vandals committing these crimes” said Kuharski.

Unfortunately, not many people or groups favor life; not while there are sexual freedoms involved and obligations to be assumed. Looked at deeply, the disrespect for life is most acutely seen in minority communities. In what seems to be a billboard of a young black man holding a child, one need remember that blacks account for some 36% of all abortions while representing some 13% of the population. Aside from the wonderful Dr. Alveda King, who pulls no punches about this evidence of “black genocide,” where are the spokesmen in the Black Community, or in the Catholic Church? It seems that too many are afraid of the taunt of being “racist” by even raising the issue. But, there it is.
All people need to be shamed by the country with even thinking about killing a completely innocent life. Why not take all federal money spent on murder-gifts to Planned Parenthood and donate them to a fund (1) to establish a federal adoption service, (2) pre-natal care fo all mothers in need, and (3) education of young women that need it after they have had their babies, kind of a “Baby Marshall Plan”.
Nope, that will never work. Greed is too strong, and human sensuality. Just think of it: a mother actually killing her own child.
And, then think that those that permit this and fund this murder, go to communion to accept the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
And, then further think that the man sworn to defend Christ to the death, who gives up his own chance at a being a father and a husband, willingly places the Sacred Host in the mouth/on the filthy hand/ of the murder-enabler/provider.
Ain’t it something!! What did Chesteron say, “We are perishing for want of wonder, not for want of wonders”. The vandals in question are really commenters on what most people now believe.
I interpret this vandalism differently: a sign of desperation: the pro-death equivalent of the V2, which was terrifying, but utterly ineffective in winning a war. The public is slowly shifting to pro-life and the Enemy is running out of options. The fancy videos aren’t working, the lobbying isn’t working. Texas slashed the number of abortion clinics and letters to the SF Chronicle actually screamed for Texas to be expelled from the Union. If there is not yet enough electoral support to abolish abortion legally, we are closer to bankrupting PP and ending most abortion economically. I have followed this since the 1980s and have more hope now than ever before.
This is the tolerance of the left. Get ready for persecution, if you haven’t felt it yet perhaps you are being too timid in standing up for the Faith. Church Militant, be strong!
I totally agree!
I strongly believe that America’s churches all need a deep re-commitment to Christianity, and need to develop plans to evangelize all over the Nation, and “re-convert the barbarians!” America is now “Mission Territory,” and must be treated as such! What did the missionaries do, when they first came to America? What were their conversion plans and strategies?? It was a very hard job, evangelizing groups of people whose cultures and languages were totally different, from the European missionaries!! In the medical field, I think practitioners of medicine and psychology, all need to face serious realities, honestly, of the work they do, and the underlying philosophy! A great many scientists, doctors, nurses, psychologists, etc.– are CORRUPT and IMMORAL, in their professional beliefs and practices! They all need a proper MORAL TRAINING, as well as professional and legal boundaries, for the proper MORAL practice of science and medicine!!
If young people were raised with proper religious and moral training, they would grow up learning to love and value Traditional Marriage, home and family! They would value and highly respect, mothers-to-be, and their adorable, developing babies, in the womb! A gift from Heaven! Everyone would dream of growing up, marrying, and having a family! Teen-agers would properly respect their parents, and would want to grow up, to be just like them– get married, lead a responsible life, and be a good mom, and a good dad! We would then have a much happier Nation! And no more evil, irresponsibility, and rebellion!
Why are the culprits shown on the surveillance cameras not arrested?
Good question SoCal! Maybe it’s because “Catholic” pro-abort Governor Jerry Brown and the other baby killers in Sacramento don’t want them arrested.
A scientific, medical, non-religious web site:
ENDOWMENT for HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
ABORTION is the murder of an innocent human being for the convenience of another.
You mean a website that passes itself off as a scientific, medical, non-religious site.
