Porter told LifeNews.com that she and a friend went to an event the Kerry campaign had scheduled in Tampa. She brought along a sign that simply read, “My abortion hurt me.”
She hoped Kerry would see it, but knowing only a limited number of people were being allowed inside the event, her best prospects were to show it those attending.
“I almost didn’t go because doubt and fear was beginning to set in,” Porter said. “But I went to hold my sign for the people walking in. I did not go as a Bush supporter or as a Republican, but as a woman hurt by abortion.”
Dozens of people walked by and saw her sign.
…Porter tells LifeNews.com that one detractor told her he wished the abortion had killed her. His wife elbowed him in the stomach afterwards.
…”Then it happened,” Porter explains. “He reached up to shake a hand in the back and his eyes went up to my sign. He read it and then he looked into the crowd to see who was holding it — and he looked me directly in the eyes.”
“I hope he saw my pain. I was not angry, just pleading with him to understand. You could see the shock and surprise on his face,” Porter said.
But within seconds, a Kerry campaign staff member approached Porter and grabbed her sign.
“You can’t have that sign here,” the Kerry staffer said.
The sign tore and Porter let go. After he had possession of it, the Kerry staffer “tore it to pieces” and walked away. “He wouldn’t even let me have the pieces,” Porter said.

So much for John Kerry’s vaunted personally opposed position on abortion. Liberal Brown Shirts will not allow any expression outside of the Democrat’s dogma on abortion.
