The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform announced today it will fly 50′ x 100′ aerial billboards displaying photographs of first trimester, ten-week-old aborted babies over Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh, Racine and Waukesha, Wisconsin, from November 2 through Election Day, November 6:

The flights are part of CBR’s Key States Initiative.  From the press release:

Our goal is to make certain that abortion does not become the forgotten issue in an election campaign dominated by economic concerns.  We intend to force a debate and ensure that that debate is well informed.

Parents of young children may complain about these images but the news media routinely publishes and broadcasts disturbing news imagery from which few children can be totally shielded.  CBR is publically displaying abortion imagery precisely because news organizations suppress such photos and video.  We reject this double standard.
