The motorcade carrying President Barack Obama was forced to confront pictures of babies victimized by abortions. A pro-life group that took up a position along the presidential parade route set up graphic abortion pictures.

Mark Harrington, the director of the group Created Equal, talked about why his organization set them up.

“On January 21, 2013, President Obama put his hand on the Bible and swore ‘to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.’ That same Constitution that he swore to uphold reads that we are to ‘secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.’ Our posterity is a reference to our offspring – preborn children,” he said. “Because Obama supports abortion and infanticide, he violated his oath of office the moment he put his hand on the Bible. The irony is Obama swore 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. We will defend them.”

Blogger Jill Stanek provided more on the graphic photos the president’s motorcade must pass and a picture of them (see below, WARNING: graphic).

“Created Equal’s protest is positioned on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the Navy Memorial. The presidential motorcade passed the group on its way to the Inauguration at the Capitol Building and will pass it again when returning to the White House,” she writes.
