Abortion Foes Hope Billboard Effort Stirs Support
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio is among presidential battleground states targeted in a campaign of rolling billboards that will use graphic images of aborted fetuses to encourage voters to support anti-abortion candidates.
The advocacy group Created Equal says it will kick off the billboard campaign in Columbus on Saturday. It hopes to extend the effort later to Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Missouri and Iowa.
The group seeks to capitalize on a historically low percentage of Americans identified in a recent Gallup poll that identified as “pro-choice.”
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio predicts the billboards will not meet their goal. Executive Director Kellie Copeland said the same Gallup poll showed 13 percent of Americans want abortion to be outlawed as Created Equal advocates.
