Court allows display of ‘bloody’ aborted babies: Case addresses ‘America’s bland indifference to this carnage’

From WorldNetDaily.

“Some signs used by pro-life protesters to spur a public reaction against abortion may be graphic, but that doesn’t mean they’re illegal and can be confiscated, according to a new ruling from the Minnesota Supreme Court.

The decision reversed the criminal convictions of pro-life protesters Ron Rudnick and Luke Otterstad, who displayed the signs on an overpass in the Twin Cities suburb of Anoka during the run-up to the 2004 national elections.

One sign displayed a large color photograph of an aborted infant; the other branded a local congressional candidate as “pro-abortion.” The two were jailed by police, their signs were taken away, and they were convicted of causing a “criminal nuisance.”

But the state’s highest court unanimously reversed the convictions, determining that prosecutors simply failed to prove their case: that the signs created any danger to the public. ”
