A NORTH IDAHO GROUP PROTESTING ABORTION IS TARGETING
HIGH SCHOOLS TO GET THEIR MESSAGE ACROSS.
THEIR LATEST STOP, COUER D'ALENE.
KXLY 4'S AARON LUNA HAS MORE ON WHY THE GROUP WAS
PROTESTING AT COEUR D'ALENE HIGH SCHOOL THIS MORNING
AND HOW LONG THEY'LL BE THERE.
They're planning on doing that every day until about
They're handing out flyers like this which does have
one graphic image.
They say the image is an important part of getting
their message across.
NO BULL HORNS AND ONLY A FEW LARGE SIGNS.
THE ABOLITIONIST SOCIETY OF NORTH IDAHO QUIETLY GATHERED
OUTSIDE COUER D'ALENE HIGH SCHOOL.
Basically any high school around here we consider
an opportunity to bring our message,
THE FAITH BASED GROUP WITH THE ABOLISH HUMAN ABORTION
MOVEMENT DID THE SAME THING AT SANDPOINT HIGH SCHOOL
THEIR MESSAGE, ABORTION AT ANY TIME IS MURDER AND
GOD SAYS IT'S WRONG.
And God says in Genesis that human beings are created
in his image and therefore other human beings may
not murder them,
IN IDAHO WOMEN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 ARE REQUIRED TO
HAVE PERMISSION FROM ONE PARENT TO GET AN ABORTION.
IN WASHINGTON NO PARENTAL PERMISSION IS REQUIRED.
SCOTT HERNDON WITH THE ABOLITIONIST SOCIETY SAYS THAT'S
WHY THEY'RE TARGETING HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS WITH THEIR
Of those 1.2 million abortions per year about 420,000
are obtained by the ages of girls between 12 and 19,
THE PROTEST WASN'T A SURPRISE.
THE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL ASKED FOR AN INCREASE IN POLICE
PATROL THIS WEEK AND INFORMED PARENTS.
They sent out an e-mail they warned everybody ahead
of time and they also sent out a reminder and I thought
that was great,
HE ALSO REMINDED STUDENTS THAT LEARNING COMES FIRST.
This is a school day, it's a typical school day there
just happens to be people outside handing you literature,
PROTESTERS DIDN'T WAVE GRAPHIC SIGNS BUT THEIR 20
PAGE PAMPHLET DID HAVE ONE GRAPHIC IMAGE.
This is a 10 week old aborted baby right there,
THEY DID ACKNOWLEDGE THOSE SIGNS MIGHT COME OUT SOMETIME
I just think it's kinda ridiculous to force your opinion
on everybody else but I think everybody here is going
to be mature and leave them alone,
The next stop for this anti-abortion group will be
Post Falls High School.
