Students for Life of America Launches Billboards in Major Cities in Next Phase of SFLA’s Campaign for Abortion Free Cities

Bringing conversations into neighborhoods through on the ground door knocking campaigns and deploying physical billboards are two ways the Campaign for Abortion Free Cities is helping to serve the women and families targeted by the abortion industry without the interference of Big Tech censorship,” said Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins. “The Pro-Life Generation is gritty, and we don’t take ‘No’ as an answer when preborn lives are on the line. Students for Life of America will continue to lead the pro-life movement’s efforts to abolish abortion through boots on the ground activism in cities all over the country.” 

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (10-12-2021) – This month, Students for Life of America will launch billboards in major cities from coast-to-coast as part of its Campaign for Abortion Free Cities. SFLA estimates that 86% of residents in the communities served by the Campaign for Abortion Free Cities are not aware of the free, nonviolent resources available to women in the community, leaving mothers and families vulnerable to the predation of the profit-driven abortion industry. SFLA seeks to transform this statistic with billboards stating, “Pregnant Women Have Better Options,” with a phone number and website that will connect community members to free, local, nonviolent resources.

The target cities to be served by these billboards include Denver, CO; Phoenix, AZ; Aurora, IL; Jackson, MS; Tacoma, WA; Dallas, TX; Rochester, NY, and Sacramento, CA.

The Campaign for Abortion Free Cities is a first-of-its-kind, multi-faceted approach to abolishing abortion in 20 major cities. The campaign focuses on using political tools to build community bridges between people and the nonviolent abortion alternatives and services available to them.

The billboards being launched this week will serve two purposes: One billboard design aims to help ensure that women targeted by the abortion industry know about the people and organizations in their local communities equipped, ready, and willing to support them through the journey of pregnancy and parenting. Another billboard design aims to persuade Americans in the so-called “Moveable Middle” to the pro-life position.

Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America, said:

“Bringing conversations into neighborhoods through on the ground door knocking campaigns and deploying physical billboards are two ways the Campaign for Abortion Free Cities is helping to serve the women and families targeted by the abortion industry without the interference of Big Tech censorship. The Pro-Life Generation is gritty, and we don’t take ‘No’ as an answer when preborn lives are on the line. Students for Life of America will continue to lead the pro-life movement’s efforts to abolish abortion through boots on the ground activism in cities all over the country.”
