Thousands and thousands of people across America lined the streets of their communities in prayer for the end of abortion.   Here in Des Moines, masses lined Merle Hay Road.

The Life Chain in Des Moines, Iowa, October 3rd, 2010

The Des Moines Register did not photograph the event.  They didn’t include a single word of coverage in their Monday edition.  Keep in mind, the Register provides Planned Parenthood lavish news coverage and editorial support.  They provide little to none to pro life causes.

Quiner’s Diner was there.  We are providing you the photographic coverage of an event the mainstream media does not consider newsworthy.  Do you think they would have covered this event if it was a rally in support of abortion rights?

No need to answer.

Thanks to Lisa Bourne for providing photographs near the front end of the chain at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church.

    It’s no surprise that no one from the Register bothered to cover this. But, the people who drove by (even those who gave the protesters the one finger salute) saw it and, in some way, were affected. Sometimes all it takes is for one person to change the tide or to move a mountain. Let’s pray that person drove down Merle Hay on Sunday.
    Thanks to all who participated. I, unfortunately, was out of town until late Sunday evening. We’ll keep on fighting. Our bodies may give out but we’ll never give up until abortion ‘rights’ go the way of slavery.

    Thank you Tom for taking the responsibility (and privilege) which the Register should have done in reporting this important event! Even though good journalism supposedly dictates an objective, unbiased coverage of EVERY major event dealing with “hot button” issues (and abortion is definitely that!) we who are pro-life know that, sadly, the Register appears not to be concerned about objectivity or fairness in reporting on this problem. In the meantime, until and unless, the Register EVER becomes “fair and balanced”, do keep on keeping on!

    Biased coverage of current events by the Register includes many topics but the worst is abortion in my opinion.

    Unfortunate that information like that of the posts by Tom Quiner not available in the Register, and other newpapers in the U.S., on regular basis.

    Keep up the good work, Tom Quiner. I inform friends and relatives of your website.

    Thank you Tom, for covering this important event and showing photographs. I wanted to be there but I also needed to get my cat blessed at that was at 1:30. I wish I could bi-locate like St. Padre Pio. But I did and do pray for an end to abortion.
