BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

If you drove through the Five Points area of Birmingham on Wednesday, you likely saw some graphic images. Created Equal, a pro-life group, posted signs around the intersection showing what happens to an aborted fetus.

Created Equal says 2,900 babies in the U.S. die each day due to abortion. They're hoping to see those numbers decline through their grassroots effort.

This week 50 high school and college students are traveling around the country sharing their message. They are hitting five cities in five days.

On Monday they were in Cincinnati, Tuesday they visited Atlanta, Wednesday they stopped in Birmingham, Thursday they're headed to Jackson, Mississippi, and Friday they will wrap up in Nashville, Tennessee.

Jami Beer, director of campus outreach for Created Equal, says they're taking the same route as some of the Freedom Riders.

Beer says during the school year they try to reach their peers, but during the summer they'll share their message with anyone who will listen.

"Statistically college age women are the ones having the most abortions," Beer said. "So yes we'd love to talk with them but we also want to talk with anyone. We want to see a grassroots effort to end the injustice of abortion."

Beer says if they encounter opposition they try to kindly and graciously share their views.

"Obviously abortion is controversial, however, it shouldn't be because all humans are created equal and deserve the right to life so naturally we do meet people who disagree with us and we want to kindly, graciously show them what's happening to the youngest of the human race pre-born children," said Beer.
