The national group Created Equal, in cooperation with Operation Rescue, will bring its mobile billboard campaign to Naples on Wednesday.
The mobile billboards show aborted babies on the sides and rear of box trucks. In conjunction with the visit, dozens of people are expected to hold signs in downtown Naples. Its goal, sponsors say, "is to save lives, register voters, and turn out the pro-life vote on Nov. 6."
The gathering is planned for downtown Naples, at the corner of Fifth Avenue South and U.S. 41, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"Our huge mobile billboards and hand-held signs permit the victims of abortion to speak for themselves," Mark Harrington, executive director of Created Equal, said in a statement. "Florida voters will play a central part in determining the outcome of the November election."
Gov. Scott to speak on first day of RNC
Florida Gov. Rick Scott of Naples is scheduled to speak on the first night of the Aug. 27-30 Republican National Convention in Tampa, the RNC announced Monday night on its website.
When the convention reconvenes at 7:45 p.m. next Monday after a recess, House Speaker John Boehner is to speak, followed by remarks by Scott, the website reports.
The final speaker of the night is scheduled to be Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann.
