A huge, pro-life display that demonstrates the value of unborn babies will be featured in one of America’s most iconic places this weekend: Times Square in New York City.
Sponsored by Focus on the Family, “Alive From New York” will show a live, 4D ultrasound of an unborn baby in the center of Times Square for thousands to see.
“Our hope is that people walking into Times Square on Saturday will look up to the screens and lift-up in prayer every abortion-minded woman,” Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family, told Fox News.
The event will include music, inspirational speakers and the testimonies of abortion survivors, as well as the live ultrasound.
“They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the picture of a baby is actually of inestimable worth. It’s a snapshot of the future and a million possibilities yet to come,” Daly said.
Through the event, the pro-life organization hopes to inspire people to push back against the state’s radical new pro-abortion law. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the law in January, allowing unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth and recognizing abortion as a “fundamental human right.”
Focus on the Family hopes their positive, life-affirming ultrasound display will help people realize that every baby deserves to be protected under the law, Daly said.

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, who is involved as well, said they also want to send a message to the governor.
“Gov. Cuomo has said something along the lines of pro-lifers aren’t welcome in New York,” Mancini said. “Well, here we are in Times Square and life should be welcomed wherever we are, and from what we’ve heard pro-life New Yorkers are really appalled by this legislation and they want to protect the dignity of the unborn and make their voices heard.”
People who cannot make the event but want to participate can watch via livestream here from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
The truth is powerful, and abortion activists cannot argue with a real-life image of a baby in his or her mother’s womb. Ultrasounds can make a huge impact because they demonstrate that the woman is carrying more than just a “potential person” or a “blob of tissue.” She is carrying a living, unique human being who can smile, turn somersaults, yawn, suck their thumb and much more – a precious, valuable child.
