When I first saw this linked from Spirit Daily and clicked the link it sounded like the kind of pro-life video you often see on YouTube. Then I watched it. It’s worth a view to see how hard hardhearted we can become and why the necessity for prayer remains with us.
**warning** some written profanity appears in the video. Not suitable for children.

The pictures shown outside of the ones from the 60's have been shown over the last 12 months. The chicken is shown next to the obscene hand gesture. The hand gesture is put up when we come to pray at the mill and taken down when we leave. The other signs are up 24 hours a day and have been for over a year. They change them as they feel the need. We have no violent or threatening actions at the mill. Strictly praying and sidewalk counselors that try to desuade girls going in from getting an abortion. The abortionists even complimented the Pro-Life group during the 40 days for life campaign that was held in the Spring of last year for being civil. It is real. It is all true. It is the culture of death.

Its fairly obvious from the video that someone who works there resents the protesters, not God. The fact that some of the workers complimented you on your 40 day vigil proves they do not all feel that way about you.
To casually brand them all as part of the "culture of death" and try to publicly portray them as being contemptuous of God and not you demonstrates your resentment of the people who work there.
If you want to publicize what positive work you are doing outside the facility, do so. It is not necessary to attack the people working there to help blow your own horn.

Would you work in a place that condoned a picture of Christ in the window giving the finger to those outside? Am I CASUALLY branding the people inside that brag that they have killed 50,000 babies, "the culture of death"
Are you serious?

Does everyone who works there actively partipate in carrying out abortions?
Do you honestly believe they go to work every day relishing all of the abortions they'll get to do?
Yes, you are casually branding them with the "culture of death" moniker so you don't have to worry about what effect you are having on them by publicly accusing them of being contemptuous of God.

I live in Rockford and this story ran on our 10 o'clock news tonight.
The man who runs the abortion mill,
Wayne Webster, means the offensive signs and pictures to be there. He was quoted on the news tonight referring to the pro-life protesters,
"They can dish it out but they can't take it."
Our city attorney,
Patrick Hayes, hasn't gotten complaints from anyone who lives in the neighborhood. Pro-life protesters have, however, complained.
Webster removed picture of Jesus making the offensive gesture, but not other signs.
Protesters will continue to pray outside the abortion mill on Wednesday and Fridays.
Here is the link to the story on our local new station
I wanted to clear up anyone's doubt that this video accurately represents what is happening in the Rockford abortion mill.

Thank you, Susie,
The report you link to indicates the signage is meant for the protesters.

I was talking to Father today, he is the one that can seen in the background of the video I linked to earlier.
Anyway, Father told me TODAY, that the sign of Jesus was down, but it's back now, and this time it's both hands.
Also, Father told, me that while he was there praying with other local priests the owner came out dressed in a devils outfit, pitch-fork and all, and proceeded to "bless" the priests that were there praying.
