Protest “abortionchangesyou.com” in NYC this coming Saturday

Lina

Abortionchangesyou.com promotes an aura of shame and guilt around abortion and contributes to the lie that to have an abortion is to murder a baby.  This comes in the guise of concern for women and providing emotional support for them. The anti-abortion agenda of these ads has been exposed in a New York Times article, which points out that the site directs people to pro-life groups with the Catholic Church and the site’s founder has collaborated with Feminists for Life.

Saturday April 17th
 
Protest “abortionchangesyou.com
 
& its anti-abortion, anti-woman message
in the New York City subways
 
Speak out for Abortion Rights
and Women’s Liberation!
