While Created Equal has represented abortion victims at the National March for Life for years, this January we also attended many other events in the nation’s capital, including the inauguration of President Donald Trump and the so-called “Women’s March on Washington, DC.”
The reasons for our presence at these two particular events were very different.
President Trump made many promises to the babies on the campaign trail, and our purpose was to call on him to keep those commitments. We held a banner reading, “Pres. Trump: Keep your promises to the babies” paired with pictures of his youngest constituents.
After taking the oath, President Trump began the inaugural parade, which took him directly by our team. In his speech, he’d referenced “American carnage” caused by crime. Passing our team, he was reminded of the greatest American carnage and of his duty to protect the babies.
As for the “Women’s March,” in spite of the generic name, this was a march to defend baby-killing. We firmly believe that those who defend victimization should see the horrendous fruit of their labor.
The “Women’s March” website reads, “We call on all defenders of human rights to join us.” However, this invitation had no room for those who defend preborn babies. While our JumboTV trailer drove around the event, our team entered with signs showing babies and mothers killed by legal abortion. Marchers immediately began chanting their support of abortion. Many stood in front of our signs. Still others shouted or spat in our direction.
But one young girl marching was moved by the contrast between our love and the crowd’s hate. She approached our team member Emma, hugged her, and said, “I’m sorry for how they are treating you. I’m glad you’re here.”
So long as the culture war rages on, Created Equal will be on the frontlines. Join us!
