The World Series begins tonight and one of the biggest stories is whether or not the Chicago Cubs will be able to win a World Series for the first time in a century. As fans watch the game and millions of people tune in worldwide, a pro-life group hopes to get across its message.
For this election season Created Equal produced a “Vote Anti-Abortion” campaign to educate voters on the victims of abortion. The “battle ground tour” started in Pennsylvania, is now in Ohio, and will finish in Florida right before Election Day in November.
Tonight, in Cleveland they will show World Series fans a graphic image of a victim of abortion with a banner flying behind a small plane shortly before Game One.
“Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena hold a combined 50,000 plus fans,” Created Equal’s Mark Harrington told The Stream. “Additionally, if you add all the people downtown, there could be a close 100,000 voters reached with our VOTE ANTI ABORTION message.”
According to Harrington, “each flight costs $2400. Dollar for dollar, this kind of targeted marketing is more cost effective than tradition advertising. Most mainstream media outlets refuse to publish our campaign banners, so we have found alternative ways of reaching voters without having to go through the liberal gatekeepers that control access to traditional mass media venues.”
Harrington says the group has seen success in the first week of its election-related campaign. “We had a student at The University of Toledo say, ‘I have never seen abortion before and will consider these pictures and your information before I vote.’ We have had several conversations with voters who changed their minds while we’ve been in Pennsylvania.”
