An abortion procedure stamped on a van blasted in the public's eye

Posted: Updated:
FARGO, N.D. -- A mother reached out to us after seeing disturbing larger-than-life posters of an aborted baby on the side of a van rolling around 13th Avenue S., in Fargo. Her youngest son happened to be in the car at the time.

"I saw a dead baby and I felt disgusted and scared," said six-year-old Joey Hanson.

"'Oh mom what is that, what happened?", said Sandra Hanson. "I looked over and there are these horrible pictures."

It's a sight Sandra Hanson never thought she would have to explain to her six-year-old son. An abortion procedure stamped on a van blasted in the public's eye.

"As a mother it puts you in a really difficult position, because how do you even being to explain what it means and why they're doing it," said Hanson. "I mean, death is a scary thing.

The mother of three told Valley News Live we should protect our children and that her son was robbed of his innocence. 

"To display the images that they did, it's far from protecting children."

Hanson told us she spotted the truck Wednesday along 13th Ave. S., it turned off on 45th St. S. While she is appalled, some feel differently.

"I think it's an aberrant thing that they were willing to do that," said liberalist Shannon Smith-Eidson. "I certainly don't support doing that, but at the same time I do believe that 'yes' they should have the freedom of speech to do that, because this is America."

Hanson understands others are entitled to their own beliefs, but not at the expense of her child being exposed. 

"Honestly my gut reaction was to ram into the van," said Hanson. "I wanted those images to be taken down."

She said the photos were so disturbing they could have caused an accident if a driver was paying more attention to the van instead of the road. 

We tried to reach out to the driver of the campaign, but haven't heard any response.
