As I pulled into the front parking lot of Bel Air High School about 7 a.m. on Thursday, two men caught my eye. They were standing on the corner adjacent to the entrance to the school parking lot on Kenmore Avenue. Friday morning, the men were back, this time standing on the corner of Kenmore Avenue and Bobcat Drive. The men were holding up large signs in protest against abortion. Pro-life supporters have often been seen before around the town of Bel Air. They hold up signs displaying text and images opposing abortion.
