Ohio’s Largest Abortion Facility Launches Billboard Campaign to Claim: ‘Abortion Is a Blessing’

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The largest abortion facility in Ohio has launched a billboard campaign in an effort to urge readers “to reflect on the powerful role that abortion plays in people’s lives.”

The facility, called Preterm, has purchased 16 billboard locations around the Cleveland area to “spark conversation” surrounding its belief that abortion is necessary as it allows women to live however they want without a child getting in the way. Preterm offers surgical abortions up to 19 weeks gestation—almost five months—and medication abortions up to nine weeks.

“Abortion is a normal and necessary part of people’s lives. People from all walks of life have abortions for many different reasons. And each person’s experience is valid,” the MyAbortionMyLife website reads.

“To a parent struggling to make ends meet, abortion may be the best way to love and care for your family. To a young person, abortion may be the chance to graduate. To all of us, abortion is foundational to a just society where we can live life on our own terms,” it asserts.

Each billboard contains a different message in support of abortion, with the phrase “Abortion is” and then a blank that is completed by a thought. Among the 16 billboards include the statements “Abortion is a blessing;” “Abortion is sacred;” “Abortion is a family value;” “Abortion is hope;” “Abortion is a second chance;” “Abortion is liberty;” “Abortion is health care;” and “Abortion is good medicine.”

Preterm has also been urging supporters to share graphics with the same messages on social media, and to also create discussion with the hashtag #MyAbortionMyLife.

However, while some abortion advocates have called the campaign “refreshing,” “beautiful” and “stigma-busting,” others have conversely used the effort as a way to declare that “abortion is murder.”

“Your abortion ends your baby’s life. #MyAbortionMyLife,” one Twitter user wrote.

“There’s no way to change the #abortion narrative. Those 60 million dead babies can’t come back to life. #MyAbortionMyLife,” another wrote.

One even created their own series of statements, including, “Abortion is selfish;” “Abortion is baby-killing;” “Abortion is barbaric;” “Abortion is not an option;” and “Abortion is sin.”

O’Connor

As previously reported, female government leaders have claimed for years that abortion is necessary to allow women to work outside of the home and pursue careers. In the 1992 ruling of Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, a Reagan appointee, asserted that abortion has kept women in the workforce.

“The ability of women to participate equally in the economic and social life of the nation has been facilitated by their ability to control their reproductive lives,” she wrote on behalf of the court. “For two decades of economic and social developments, people have organized intimate relationships and made choices that define their views of themselves and their places in society, in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail.”

In June 2016, while speaking before a gathering of Planned Parenthood supporters, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton similarly said that she believes legalizing abortion has helped to keep women in the workplace, thereby aiding the economy.

“[Roe v. Wade] transformed [women] because it meant that women were able to get educations, build careers, enter new fields, and rise as far as their talent and hard work would take them—all the opportunities that follow when women are able to stay healthy and choose whether and when to become mothers,” she asserted.

Clinton opined that birth control has likewise helped the economy because it has kept women in the workforce instead of at home raising children.

“Today, the percentage of women who finish college is six times what it was before birth control was legal,” she stated. “Women represent half of all college graduates in America and nearly half our labor force, and our whole economy, then, is better off.”

Talmage

However, Christians have long decried abortion in America as being the savage murder of innocent children. Even in 1872, preacher Thomas De Witt Talmage wrote in his book “The Abominations of Modern Society:”

“Herod’s massacre of the innocents was as nothing compared to that of millions and millions by what I shall call ante-natal murders. You may escape the grip of the law, because the existence of such life was not known by society, but I tell you that at last God will shove down on you the avalanche of His indignation, and though you may not have wielded knife or pistol in your deeds of darkness, yet, in the day when John Wilkes Booth and Antony Probst come to judgment, you will have on your brow the brand of murderer.”

In an introductory lecture to his course on obstetrics in 1854, Philadelphia doctor Hugh Lennox Hodge also explained that if a woman were to come to a medical doctor in pursuit of an abortion, “he must, as it were, grasp the conscience of his weak and erring patient and let her know in language not to be misunderstood that she is responsible to her Creator for the life of the being within her.”

“The procuring abortion is ‘a base and unmanly act,’” Hodge also said, quoting in part text from a court ruling of his day. “It is a crime against the natural feelings of man, against the welfare and safety of females, against the peace and prosperity of society, against the divine command ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ It is murder.”

    “Abortion is a normal and necessary part of people’s lives”?????

    Translation……..MURDER is a NORMAL and NECESSARY part of people’s lives.

    Says satan from the pits of hell.

  • DrIndica

    Millions and millions of abortions in 1872? I am one against ante-natal killing, but that is some interesting arithmetic Rev. Talmage. Perhaps a bit hyperbolic.

  • some words

    If we need population control, why don’t we execute murderers, child molesters, and repeated sex offenders; instead of the innocent unborn? It’s because our society’s sexual appetite can’t be satisfied by executing evil criminals!
    It all reminds me of Adolph Hitler’s “prophecy”, “Today Germany, tomorrow the world!” In Hitler’s time, Nazi Germany was insanely and completely obsessed with senseless torture and mass slaughter of innocent life. Murder and torture are now common place everywhere, even in the United States;……………for the unborn. Welcome to NAZI USA.
    When President Clinton signed a bill legalizing partial birth abortion (sucking out the baby’s brain), he didn’t have to worry about this affecting him. It wasn’t because that he was already born, it was BECAUSE HE DIDN’T HAVE A BRAIN!

  • Vocal business advertising typically signals sales are down. Praise God!

  • YoikesAndAway

    Seems that they have no understanding of what a blessing really is. Then to put murder as one shows how fallen they really are.

  • Eva Schneider Szarafinski

    Just sick. How can that be considered a blessing?

    • Abortion is in no way a blessing. But it is a necessary evil for those in need of that service. It is not your decision, so butt out.

      • Ron K

        1) it is not necessary. 2) The protection of innocent life is everyone’s decision. Who made you the arbiter who decides who needs to butt out?

        • The ONLY person who can decide that is the pregnant woman.

          • LynnRH

            As Ron K was saying above “The protection of innocent life is everyone’s decision”…….it may be the law unfortunately that abortion is legal (for now) but I can assure you when you face the Lord after your death our world’s legal laws won’t mean a “hill of beans” to Him! And it won’t be a pretty picture when you try to argue your point in how right our world’s law is and how wrong His is. LOL

          • SeekandYeShallFind

            I pray that God will keep women away from you and your desire to see them abort/murder another innocent human being. May He keep them FAR away from you in their time of need for help.

          • And it is my prayer that you and people like you will stay out of the personal affairs of others and allow them to live their lives free of interference by you and/or others like you, who would tell them how to live their lives.

      • Eva Schneider Szarafinski

        Never.

  • Lydia Church

    Abortion is… evil, murder, sadistical, butchery, bloodthirsty, selfish and wrong in every way.
    The bloody butchers murder the innocent CHILD and the mother went in for selfish reasons because it was not convenient, only to regret it for the rest of her life. There is healing, but only in Christ. If you don’t want babies, then don’t have sex. And yes, it really is that simple. Without getting graphic, there are numerous ways to avoid conception. Once conception occurs, a life begins and to end it is murder. And it’s not ‘your body’! That part is a new life with unique dna different from yours and the father’s. Oh, these cold hearted feminazis with their hot pink signs will be apologizing one day, from hell. To see the facts watch the youtube video ‘the silent scream.’ Abolish abortion forever!

    • You may be correct in all that you say, but that does not give the government the right to prohibit a person from using the only option she may have. The world does not need more unwanted children. It is not your business, so butt out.

      • Ron K

        So what if the populace thought there were too many unwanted geralds in the world? Would you tell people, or a govt, who might want to help you to butt out?

        • Fallacious argument. Abortion is a specific procedure, it is not murder. Abortion is legal. Only the person most directly involved can make the decision about what to do with her own body; not others having no interest in the welfare of the woman, or the eventual outcome, if the baby is born.

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            Slavery was once legal. So was the Holocaust.

          • RevJR

            “Only the person most directly involved can make the decision….” The person MOST directly involved CANNOT make the decision, as he/she has not yet learned to talk, walk, read or write! You might say that the mother is the person second-most involved, but the person who is THE MOST directly involved is the one whose life is at stake!

          • Wrong. The person most involved is the person in charge of her own body. No other person can determine what you can do with your own body, unless there is a law which says otherwise. In the case of abortion, there is not. The law is firmly set: in America, it is permissible for a woman to have an abortion. Roe v. Wade.

          • SeekandYeShallFind

            There is no fear of God in you….re read the words of Talmage and Hodge provided in the article….how does God see you and your view of abortion. How will you stand before Him on Judgment Day? You can try to justify your view of abortion to man here in this article, but you will not have that opportunity before Almighty God and the Judgment seat of Jesus Christ. Repent before you place your head on your pillow tonight.

  • barbarann

    You’ll never understand the evil of the abortion promotion until you have had an abortion or been involved in another person’s abortion. This is about money. Don’t buy into this or you will regret it the rest of your life.

  • Abortion is abhorrent, but it is a necessary evil to those who need the service. To those that do not need the service, please stay out of other people’s lives and let them do what THEY determine is best for themselves. It does not affect you.

    • Ron K

      Again, it is NOT “necessary”, and murder affects all of society. If THEY determine that getting rid of Gerald is what is best for themselves, then are you OK with that?

      • Abortion is not murder. It is legal in the United States. It is an accepted medical procedure. There are obvious plusses and minuses, but it is the woman’s decision to make, not society’s.

        • SeekandYeShallFind

          It is murder that has been legalized by a court that is in rebellion against God.

        • Martin Nosworthy

          Gerald, I just want to check…do you consider yourself to be a born again Christian?

          • I am not a Christian, at all. Why is that important in this discussion?

  • The battle against this atrocity begins with identifying it correctly. By calling it “abortion,” we’ve already acquiesced to the opposition’s terminology. Look up “abortion” and “miscarriage” in any dictionary. A miscarriage is an abortion. What doctors (and parents) do to infants in the womb is infanticide. Had Roe v. Wade been waged over infanticide rather than abortion, it would have never made it to the court room. In fact, by employing the word “abortion,” Roe v. Wade was won before it ever got to court.

    The Greek word “brephos” employed in the New Testament for infants already born is the same word used for infants in the womb (Luke 2:12 and Luke 1:41), without specifying the precise moment they became a “brephos.” Therefore, our only option is to then accept that they became such at conception. Thus, intentionally killing a brephos at any point is “brephocide” or, more properly, infanticide.

    The point being, we Christians need to stop using the non-Christians’ watered-down, politically correct terms such as “abortion” and “gay.” It’s infanticide and sodomy. There is no power in the former terms against evil and our first mistake is in acquiescing to the ungodly’s terminology.
