A billboard campaign in Ohio promoting abortion will not go unanswered by pro-abortion activists.
Preterm, a Cleveland abortion clinic and the state's largest, has posted as many as 16 billboards (as seen in photo at right) in the city of 400,000 to promote its services.
Molly Smith of Cleveland Right to Life tells OneNewsNow the problem is the billboards contain outright lies.
"The billboards are saying things like 'abortion is liberty," 'abortion is life-saving,'" she says. "And we really do have some questions about where they are getting these kinds of statements from because certainly abortion is not life-saving, particularly when we know for sure two people go into the clinic and one comes out."
Other billboards suggest "abortion is liberty" and "abortion is a family value," but Smith says both are blatant lies, notably the latter.
The truth about abortion, she says, will soon be revealed in Cleveland by a strong pro-life organization: the Radiance Foundation plans to counter the pro-abortion message with pro-life billboard messages of its own.
"But of course the problem that we all face," says Smith, "is that there seems to be this unending pit of money that the abortion industry can pull on."
Smith also reminds people that Preterm's abortion clinic has had numerous run-ins with the state over sanitary conditions at the clinic, and in 2013 a woman died after an abortion at the facility.
That is information, she notes, you won't read on their billboards.
