About Our Signs

Below is some information on the principal signs we use during our Face the Truth Tours.

Eighth Week of Life

Eighth Week of Life Sign -- Click for larger version

At only eight weeks gestation, all of the internal organs of this tiny unborn baby are already present. Brainwaves can be detected. A tiny face and little hands and feet are visible, and unique fingerprints will soon appear.

Over 700,000 babies are aborted at about this stage of development every year in our country.


Baby Face LIFE Sign -- Click for larger version

The eager face of this beautiful baby boy is a reminder of the joy that every new life brings. Only a few weeks before this picture was taken, this little boy could legally have been killed by abortion.

Every child deserves the chance to be born and to be loved. Yet over a million unborn babies are aborted each year in our country.

In His Image

Jesus Sign -- Click for larger version

Beth Sweigard painted "In His Image" in 1983, moved by a desire to awaken Christians to the spiritual horror of abortion. One side of this sign reads, "Abortion Kills His Children," and the other, "Jesus Forgives and Heals."

God's forgiveness is greater even than the sin of abortion.

First Trimester Abortion

First Trimester Abortion Sign -- Click for larger version

Pro-life activists found the remains of several aborted babies in a dumpster behind an abortion facility in Chicago in 1987, including the baby in this picture. This baby, whose sex could not be determined, was aborted at 10-12 weeks gestation using the suction aspiration abortion procedure. The remains were buried in Evergreen Park, Illinois.

Notice the details on this baby's tiny but perfectly formed hand and foot. Nearly a million first trimester abortions are performed each year in the United States—over 2,500 per day.

Second Trimester Abortion

Baby Malachi Sign -- Click for larger version

This little boy was aborted at 21 weeks gestation in Dallas, Texas in 1993. The abortionist used the D&E abortion procedure, slowly dismembering the baby.

Pro-life activists recovered his body from a now-closed abortion facility, gave him the name Malachi, and buried him. Over 100,000 second trimester abortions are performed each year in our country.

When this baby was buried by the pro-lifers who found his body, he was given the name Malachi, and so this sign is known as the "Baby Malachi" sign.

Third Trimester Abortion

Choice Sign -- Click for larger version

The baby in this picture—a little girl some call "Baby Choice"—was aborted in Houston, Texas in August 1987 shortly before she would have been born. The abortionist tore off her head in the procedure. Her jaw is missing.

Pro-life activists found her body in a dumpster in the alley behind the abortion facility. Over 10,000 third trimester abortions are performed each year in the United States.

Additional Signs

In addition to the signs described above, we also use "Help" and "Warning" signs. The Help sign provides an 800-number for help with an untimely pregnancy or dealing with the aftermath of abortion. The Warning sign reads, "Warning: Graphic Abortion Photos Ahead" and is positioned several blocks before the display, to allow drivers to avoid it if they wish.

Letter of Authenticity

Below is a link to a letter written by Dr. Anthony Levatino attesting to the accuracy of the portryal of abortion in the League's "Face the Truth" images:
