Today I spotted something while I was driving by a local Catholic parish

There was a display on its lawn of many, many white crosses to commemerate the babies who are legally killed in the womb in this country. However, I could not read on the accompanying sign the details of how many crosses there were, or how many lives lost each represented, for someone had defaced the words with spray paint. However, the words were not simply blacked out, nor covered with obscene replacements (as I have seen happen before). Over the entire sign, there were three huge circles, each with the slanting 'eliminate' line inside. It was somehow appropriate. After all, the babies are eliminated- why should we not expect attempts to tell the truth about our society's murderousness to be eliminated too ?
