'Abortion Positive' Billboards Go up in Ohio

"Abortion is a family value."

The largest abortion clinic in Ohio, disgustingly called Preterm, has launched a campaign of "abortion positive" billboards. The billboards will be a fill-in-the-blank style that will read "Abortion is ___" and the blanks will be filled with things like "a family value," or "a parenting decision." At Preterm's website (myabortionmylife.org, which fully ignores the baby's life), one can also get shareable graphics that finish the sentence with words like "gender equality," and "sacred."

This desperate attempt at rebranding abortion suggests that Preterm knows how Americans feel about abortion. Townhall reports that Nancy Starner, Preterm's Director of Development and Communications said "We want the people in our community who have had abortions to know that they're not alone." Nobody wants that. We also don't want pregnant women to feel so alone that they feel they have to have an abortion. 

Preterm says:

To a physician, abortion may be a medical procedure that takes less than 10 minutes to perform. 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's terrible they're selling abortion as loving, the only path to graduation, or in any way just.
