A billboard that “welcomes” people to Colorado may make visitors think about turning around.
The I-70 billboard paid by for a pro-abortion group states, "Welcome to Colorado, where you can get a safe, legal abortion."
It’s no coincidence that eastbound traffic from neighbor Utah will see the billboard.
"The goal of the billboard was meant to be a bold message to our neighbors coming in,” Fawn Bolack, co-founder of Keep Abortion Safe, told a Denver TV news station. “That they are now entering a state that respects and allows them to make their own reproductive health care decisions.”
Bob Enyart, spokesman for Colorado Right to Life, tells OneNewsNow the pro-life group puts up its own billboards around The Centennial State to stand for life.
“Human rights for all,” is the theme of a billboard the pro-life group is preparing to erect soon.
"You have to hate God to want to advertise to kill unborn children," Enyart says of the pro-abortion billboard. "They're actually dismembering innocent children at our Planned Parenthood abortion mill.”
The purpose of a pro-life billboard, Enyart says, is to remind the public that a baby in the womb is a “living human being,” and all living human beings have God-given rights.
