Abortion photos turn heads in Denver, CO and Wichita, KS

Wichita, KS — The Truth Truck traversed the streets of downtown Wichita last night as a handful of anti-war protesters gathered outside the Century II Convention Center during an appearance by former President George H. W. Bush.
While it was nearly impossible to read the messages scrawled on the protesters’ hand-made signs, there was no missing the message on the Truth Truck. Each time the Truth Truck passed the protesters, they chanted, “Abort Bush!” as television cameras rolled.
The Truth Truck was adorned with large, billboard-sized panels of aborted babies on one side and photos showing late-term abortionist George R. Tiller escorting an injured patient into the emergency room after her botched abortion. On the truck’s loudspeaker blared the 911 call made from Tiller’s abortion mill on the day Christin Gilbert died. The Kansas Board of Healing Art recently closed the case against Tiller in Gilbert’s third-trimester abortion death.
“This is just another way to keep Christin’s memory alive,” said driver Keith Mason. “We will not let her death be swept under the rug and covered up.”
Wichita police pulled over the Truth Truck to inform Mason that his audio broadcast likely violated a city ordinance. They police were professional and courteous. Mason turned off the speaker for the rest of the evening.
“Everyone had gotten the message,” he said.

A few days earlier, on November 30, one of the Truth Trucks driven by Denver pro-lifers made a similar appearance outside another Bush speech venue that was picketed by nearly 500 anti-war protesters. But these peace protesters were anything but peaceful.
“I tried to get a picture of one of the more outrageous signs that had a picture of Saddam and under it, that said, ‘Free Saddam’, but I just couldn’t get it,” said Jo Scott, who rode along with the Truth Truck through throngs of media and protesters in downtown Denver.
“I had the opportunity to do something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I passed it up in fear of ‘liberal spit’,” she said. “I had this incredible urge to roll down the window as we passed the anti-war, pro-homo protesters and yell ‘Get a job!’ But the spit factor was too high. They were foaming at the mouth when they were just trying to talk to us. We discovered that when large groups of liberals are confronted with the Truth Truck, the windshield becomes a spit shield.”
“The Bush protesters rented a totally ineffective billboard truck. It was laughable. One side had a picture of Bush and [CO Congresswoman] Marilyn [Musgrave] and it said, ‘Marilyn’s Mentor’. The other side said, ‘Stop gay marriage so Osama won’t get away’. Most people downtown didn’t get what they were trying to say, and not even their own people responded to the message. Our Truth Truck, on the other hand, got all kinds of response,” said Scott.
