Illinois is making headlines for a disgusting billboard, proudly displayed at their state border near Missouri. Paid for by the Hope Clinic for Women, the sign reads: “Welcome to Illinois, where you can get a safe, legal abortion.”
It should read, “Welcome to Illinois. Where you can proudly murder your unborn child.”
Hope Clinic media relations coordinator Alison Drieth said they are replicating other billboards found near the Utah border, that were put up after Utah instilled abortion restrictions.
Drieth said, “We’re in a similar situation here when it came to access to reproductive health care including abortion and thought it might be as equally successful on the Illinois-Missouri border.”
She added that about half of their patients cross the border from Missouri in order to get an abortion.
Sad isn’t it? For people to be so proud to kill an unborn child.
According to the news report, the billboard is stirring up controversy.
“I would hope that Illinois has more to recommend than our abortions, like I hope we would have more to offer to people than that,” said Illinois resident Anne Marie Williams.
The billboard is raised as the state is poised to pass the most extreme expansion of abortion rights in the nation.
With a Democrat super-majority and the support of Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker — who said his goal is to make his state “the most progressive in the nation” when it comes to abortion — the state chapters of Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have pressed the state legislature to pass measures that would make partial-birth abortion legal in the state.
Let’s pray that one day, abortion is illegal in every state.
