The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform Midwest reported in a press release today it is completing Phase I of its Obama Awareness Campaign in, around, and over the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, IN:
[O]ne thing is for sure, abortion is being made real to UND students, faculty, alumni, and trustees…. After several days of exposing the population of South Bend and UND to CBR’s billboard trucks, we sent in for reinforcements to enhance our outreach in the form of a tow banner airplane.
The message that abortion is an act of violence is being delivered to Notre Dame. But we have just begun!…
This is true. Someone asked me on a radio interview yesterday what I thought the long-term impact on ND would be, and I said at the very least students and faculty will get an education on the abortion issue they will never forget.
This is also affording the pro-life community an opportunity to continue to educate the American public about abortion, since this issue has garnered national attention. The controversy even made it into President Abortion’s press conference 2 days ago.
CBR also reported, “We are burning a lot of truck and plane fuel and need help funding the project.”
Please donate generously. CBR wrote that a gift of $260 would fund one CBR billboard truck for an entire day at ND. $350 would fund an aerial billboard towed over the closed, private campus for 1 hr.
You can snail mail checks to: CBR, PO Box 360503, Columbus, OH 43236
You can donate online here

CBR plans to launch Phase II on May 4. I have a call in to CBR to find out exactly what that will entail. UPDATE, 11:05a: Phase II will include 4×8 handheld versions of the signs in a ground picket.
Note there is a caravan of 2 trucks in the following photo…
