Sioux City Iowa Bishop R. Walker Nickless bought a half-page ad in that city's Sunday paper to spread his Election Day Pro-life message.
The 11 inch by 11 inch ad appeared on page 14A, the back page of the front section of Sunday’s paper. Half of the ad is a photo of an adult hand holding the hand of a baby. The other half of the advertisement are the following words:

Abortion is our nation’s gravest injustice
The blood of 55 million murdered babies “cries out to heaven for justice.” It is always gravely sinful to support or condone abortion. Abortions’ mere legality corrupts our culture, our government, and the rule of law.
As you vote this year you have a chance to speak up for the defenseless unborn.
Your vote can save innocent lives.
Supporting the dignity of all human life I remain your bother in Christ.
