QUINCY, MA (WBZ-AM) — A Presbyterian church in Quincy that served as a polling station in the midterms is under fire for prominently displaying pro-life materials.

Some voters were offended by the anti-abortion display set up inside the Fort Square church. The display included life size models of fetuses in various stages of development.

Pastor John Culp says they are a pro-life church, but their intent was never to make voters uncomfortable.

“I’m sorry that this has proved offensive to anybody, but I can just assure people we want to be good neighbors. We don’t want to offend people. We believe what we believe and respect their right to believe what they believe,” Culp said.

Culp said the display has been there for years.

“Given that it’s been there all along and it wasn’t intended in any negative way, I think we can all just live with it and move on,” Resident Jim Warshower said.
