Church Displays Thousands of Flags

Posted: Updated:

Two Minot churches underwent a change in scenery this week: thousands of blue and pink flags to be exact.

A husband and wife team from Bismarck is behind the 66-thousand flag display.

The flags have been showcased in six different North Dakota cities and this week it's split between two Minot churches: Our Lady of Grace and First Assembly of God.

The flags represent the 66-thousand abortions that have taken place in North Dakota since Roe vs. Wade in 1973 and up until 2011.

The campaign is associated with an online site called namethem.org, where mothers who've had abortions can seek support and name their unborn children.

While the flags are showcased at only two locations, one project supporter says everyone is invited to get involved in the campaign.

(Tim Knutson, Dakota Hope Clinic Board Member)"It's for the whole community to be involved. It's not just a church-orientated based event. We reached out to anybody that has a concern for that."

The flags will be in town until Wednesday.
