Early Saturday morning the Village of Lake Zurich posted signs announcing the Pro-Life Action League’s Face the Truth Tour.
Well, to be totally honest, the signs warn motorists to “expect delays” because of our “Graphic Photos.” No need to worry, the Village is advising sensitive drivers (like Saturday’s anti-pornography vigilante) that they may wish to alter their route to avoid having their eyes opened to the Truth.
The Only Town with Its Own Warning Signs
Lake Zurich has the interesting distinction of being the only town we have ever been to that provides its own warning signs a week ahead of time.
They first used them when I brought a group (not affiliated with the Pro-Life Action League, which is not allowed to get involved in elections) to picket the campaign headquarters of Melissa Bean (who I dubbed “the abortion queen”) with graphic signs. The Lake Zurich Chief of Police asked me to alert him to all future pickets so they could place warning signs alerting motorists they may want to alter their routes. They even rerouted the school buses the second time we brought out the graphic signs.

Actually, Lake Zurich has always been good about alerting people to the Pro-Life Action League’s events before they happen. It was a story in a local paper telling about “controversial” pro-life activists coming to town in 2001 that drew myself and my daughter Corrina to participate in our first Face the Truth Tour.
Let’s Line the Streets!
Lake Zurich has traditionally been a great stop on the tour. We have set weekday records for turnouts the last two years. This Thursday, let’s give motorists a traffic jam of Biblical proportions. Remember, the more they’re delayed the longer they have to see our signs. So bring the whole family…we love babies in strollers!
Where and When
Make it a Day
Lake Zurich will be followed by stops in Palatine at 11:30am (map) and Arlington Heights at 3pm (map). A free lunch will be provided between the second and third stops to all volunteers. See you there—or at one of the many other stops throughout the week!
