We want to warn viewers that some of the images in this story may be disturbing. A group called the Center For Bio-Ethical Reform drove a large truck around Evansville Wednesday. The truck was a moving billboard with pictures of aborted fetuses. Some say this protest went too far, others say it is right on the mark.
They're images sure to catch your attention.
"That's disgusting, that they're driving that around. It just makes me want to puke," Samantha Stiff said.
It's a billboard campaign targeting Representative Brad Ellsworth. The Center For Bio-Ethical Reform says it is driving around Evansville to influence the Congressman. Regional Director Bill Calvin says even though the pictures may be graphic, people need to see them.
"Many times lives are saved because of these images on the truck," Driver, Bill Calvin said.
Calvin says healthcare reform supports abortion. That is why he hopes Ellsworth won't support healthcare reform. Reaction to the rolling billboard is mixed.
"I don't see how anyone that has any kind of conscious at all could not look at that and really question your thoughts and make sure that you're really thinking about what you're voting for," Shelly Smith said.
"I do believe in choice and I mean though these are intense images, it doesn't change my opinion," Claudia Mays said.
Calvin says he wants healthcare reform, but not at the price of more babies dying.
"A few people who are very strongly in favor of abortion get angry, but that's alright and we get a lot of thumbs up and waves and smiles. I'd say in Evansville today there's been more waves and smiles than other angry gestures," Calvin said.
Whether people agree with the billboard campaign, these Tri-Staters say it leaves a lasting impression.
Calvin says he was in Terre Haute Tuesday and will be in Bloomington Thursday. Center For Bio-Ethical Reform has eight trucks traveling across the country as well as air planes with tow banners. He says they'll continue until the final vote is made on health care reform.
