Mark Harrington, director of the group Created Equal initiated the protest and said on their Facebook page, “When Obama puts his hand on the Bible and swears to protect the United States Constitution, in doing so he is supposedly protecting future generations of America, the unborn, which are referenced in the preamble as our posterity.”
The president’s motorcade passed their signs twice. Jill Stanek of Jill Stanek.com said, “The unborn were represented today as the most pro-abortion president in United States history was inaugurated for a second time. The presidential motorcade passed our signs twice.”
“What makes us exceptional, what makes us America is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
“That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Today we continue a never-ending journey to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time. For history tells us that while these truths may be self-evident, they've never been self-executing…That while freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by his people here on earth.”
Since 1973, after the landmark Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court case allowing abortion, 54,559,615 abortions have taken place and about 40 percent of those abortions are black babies and all biological indicators suggest unborn children are capable of feeling pain by at least 20 weeks.
When the protest was over, Jill Stanek said, “Thanks to Mark’s team for standing in the gap for babies slaughtered by abortion, and for disallowing President Obama and his followers to forget what they support, even on Inauguration Day.”
