Pro-abortion vandals have struck in Indiana and they tagged a pro-life billboard to make it read that unborn babies should be put “in the trash.”

Indiana Right to Life notified today of the vandalism and said it condemned the obscene graffiti found on a pro-life billboard placed in Fort Wayne, Indiana by its affiliate, Allen County Right to Life. The billboard included the shape of an unborn baby, Allen County Right to Life’s website,, and the words, “I am only 20 weeks old. I can do a somersault.”

The billboard was vandalized to include a coat hanger and disparaging words.

“It’s upsetting that someone chose to vandalize a simple billboard with a prenatal development fact,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life.

He told LifeNews: “Allen County Right to Life has been very effective in spreading the pro-life message, so much so that Allen County no longer has an abortion facility. Unfortunately, pro-life groups are often the target of crude attacks by perpetrators who want nothing to do with the message of hope and love offered by the pro-life community. We stand with Allen County Right to Life and urge them to continue boldly proclaiming the pro-life message in Northeast Indiana.”

The billboard, located on the side of the Bootleggers Saloon at 2809 W. Main St. has been replaced by Eagle Outdoor Advertising, Fichter said.
