American RTL Unfurled DNC Sheets Of Shame


DENVER, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- An official Guinness Book of World RecordsTM attempt to display the largest ever protest sign has succeeded. The 530-foot tall and 666-foot wide message is being shouted from the mountaintops overlooking the Democratic National Convention with the leading 2008 protest message.

Depending on their location, thousands of DNC delegates and journalists can look out their hotel windows to the west to see the sign. Sponsored by American RTL Action, the message initially appeared with three enormous 160-foot tall, bright yellow letters, D-N-C, stacked on top of each other.

After those letters suddenly appeared on a mountain just west of Denver, the actual full message of the sign began to unfurl. Three lines of white text, built on the vertical yellow letters read, D-N-C:

Destroys
uNborn
Children

"The tiniest boys and girls should be loved and protected," said American RTL Action president Steve Curtis, "but as nominating Barack Obama emphasizes, the DNC even supports killing kids in the womb old enough to know their mother's voice, sleep and dream, suck their thumbs, and play with their toes."

Matt Gaspers: On Personhood

The Personhood Strategy to End Abortion

It is critical to understand that state lawmakers and governors, not Supreme Court judges, legalized abortion. In 1967, Colorado legislators successfully passed the first state law that made abortion legal in certain circumstances. Several other states followed suit by passing similar laws. Then, in 1973, those existing state laws were reinforced by the Roe v. Wade decision, the ruling in which a majority of U.S. Supreme Court judges chose not to recognize unborn human beings as persons (inherent dignity, inalienable rights) in the context of the U.S. Constitution.
