Prolifers will be angry at a lie; Prochoicers will be angry at the truth.
Pro-Life Texas is bringing one of the most controversial forms of public education outreach to North Texas Saturday, Oct. 1 and Sunday, Oct. 2 when the “Face the Truth Tour” rolls into Dallas, bringing trucks and graphic photos of aborted children to display at various spots around town in an effort to witness to the reality of abortion.
“It’s called the Truth Tour because it’s real,” said Pro-Life Texas Founder Andrew Smith. “We are bombarded constantly with misinformation from the media, abortion supporters and even, sadly, the medical community. This is an opportunity to show the truth about what abortion is. It isn’t pretty, but it’s real.”
The posters Pro-Life Texas supporters will display in public areas over the weekend look too horrible to be real; smashed skulls, tiny arms and legs and bloody remains. Every day, 3,500 abortions are performed in the United States, and this is what happens to those children every time. There will be warning signs around the areas where pro-life supporters will be witnessing, so that anyone who doesn’t want to see the posters can know ahead of time that they’re there.
This is the first time Dallas has hosted the event, although other pro-life organizations have hosted the tour in Chicago and other areas across the nation. Peaceful, prayerful and penitential is the motto for the weekend, so Pro-Life Texas has asked Dallas Police to keep protesters far away due to their sometimes violent nature.
“Sign holders and truck drivers are not the enemy,” Smith said. “Yes, this is drastic. Yes, the images are graphic, but we didn’t create the violence in the images. They are real babies who have real mothers and real fathers who grieve for their lost children, who wish someone would have shown them what they were really doing.”
