Toss in one more protest group planning to hit Tampa during the RNC convention—an anti-abortion group that uses graphic billboards of aborted fetuses.

The group Created Equal says it plans to display its billboards, mounted on box trucks, during mid-day Aug. 24-30 somewhere in downtown Tampa near the conventionn site—it didn’t specify the location.

It said the billboards will be accompanied by dozens of individuals with hand-made signs. “If photographic evidence ... doesn’t motivate the pro-life vote, nothing will,” said the group’s director, Michael Harrington.
