Anti-abortion group displaying graphic photos at major Fargo intersections

FARGO – An anti-abortion group is displaying graphic photographs at two busy Fargo intersections today as part of its campaign for the closure of clinics in five states.

The group Missionaries to the Preborn was displaying the photos this morning at the intersection of University Drive and Main Avenue. A news release from the group says it also plans to show the 5-foot-tall photos of preborn and aborted fetuses at 13th Avenue South and 45th Street from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.

Fargo is the second stop on the group’s two-week, three-state tour through North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

About 50 people are traveling with the tour, which is part of a larger “States of Refuge” yearlong tour targeting five states that have only one abortion clinic: Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.
