Finally, the Rocky Mountain News is covering the huge prolife protest sign unveiled on a nearby mountainside.

"The American Right To Life Action unveiled a sign on North Table Mountain with dimensions the groups says set a new record for protest signs as measured by the Guinness Book of World Records. The group hopes delegates, journalists and convention-goers will be able to see the sign which reads, "Destroys uNborn Children."

The sign measures 530 feet tall by 666 feet wide, according to the press release. It has the letters D-N-C in huge yellow capitals arranged vertically.

Former Colorado Republican Party chairman and ARTL Action president Steve Curtis said the group began to hike up the mountain at 1 a.m. and finished erecting the sign at 8:30 a.m."


And it is 1:50 pm MT as I type.

"The protest sign weighs more than 2,700 pounds and was sewed together with more than four miles of seams connecting 2,400 sheets and backpacked onto location and is being unfurled by 44 letter carriers with spotters a mile away to ensure proper letter placement,"

What is interesting is that the topic of the protest did not make it into the running headline that provides the link.

What is emphasized in the brief article is the Guinness Book of World Records aspect of this effort and it is the picture that reveals the point of the whole thing.

"Destoys uNborn Children"

Here is the Fox video of the sign:



Whatever breaks through the media blockade, I guess.

Still no reference to Chaput's statement yesterday or his speech last night at the prayer vigil outside a Planned Parenthood center in Denver.
