Cleveland Billboards Say Abortion is a “Blessing” and “A Parenting Decision”

Ohio’s largest abortion clinic, grossly named “Preterm” (really? REALLY?), is pushing a new “abortion positive” campaign in its hometown of Cleveland. Apparently abortion needs some good PR, and Preterm is doing its best to put a happy face on the killing of an unborn child.

Along with the billboards, Preterm has these downloadable graphics available on their website:

The graphics and abortion billboards have a “fill-in-the blank” motif, reading “Abortion is…” ending with a different positive word or phrase in the blank, such as:

  • “Abortion is a family value.”

  • “Abortion is a blessing.”

  • “Abortion is hope.”

  • “Abortion is a parenting decision.”

  • “Abortion is life-saving.”

  • “Abortion is good medicine.”

  • “Abortion is healthcare.”

  • “Abortion is necessary.”

  • “Abortion is safer than childbirth.”

  • “Abortion is normal.”

  • “Abortion is liberty.”

  • “Abortion is a second chance.”

  • “Abortion is right for me.”

I am pro-life and very much believe that abortion is WRONG, that it is the killing of the most defenseless, helpless form on human life, truly, “the least of these.” I am however, not without compassion for those who seek an abortion because they find themselves in a desperate place. As a Christian, I believe it is ALL of our place to fight abortion by financially and practically supporting crisis pregnancy centers, foster care and foster families, adoption and adoptive families, and single parents who have chosen life for their kids. I DO have the utmost compassion for those desperate enough to truly believe that the taking of an innocent life is the only way out of their bad situation. Christ-followers, I pray that we are not only advocates for life, but that we live in obedience and help raise these children. The church has to be the voice for the voiceless, but also the hands and the feet.
