Pro-choice activists have placed billboards with the statement “Abortion is Freedom” outside a city in Texas that recently passed a measure identifying themselves as a “Sanctuary for the Unborn.”
The Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity and NARAL Pro-Choice Texas placed the billboards outside of Waskom in response to the resolution.
In addition to the phrase “Abortion is Freedom,” the billboard lists the website needabortion.org, which provides resources on where Texas women can get an abortion.
In a statement posted to their Facebook page in early July, the Lilith Fund denounced the resolution passed in June, declaring that they are “clapping back.”
“And now even more people will see our message and find NeedAbortion.org, where Texans can learn about their reproductive rights and find critical resources for accessing abortion care in our state,” stated the Fund.
The Waskom City Council unanimously voted in June to prevent abortion providers from conducting business in their jurisdiction, reportedly becoming the first city in Texas to do so.
Waskom Mayor Jesse Moore said in a statement quoted by Fox that the new ordinance was about preventing the possible creation of an abortion clinic in his city.
