(Harrisburg, Pa.) --- Planned Parenthood will unveil digital billboards across the state reminding decision-makers that abortion is health care as they consider outright bans in the state capitol.
“Roe has fallen and anti abortion activists have started a campaign to ban abortion outright here in Pennsylvania, but the simple fact remains – abortion is health care, and health care is a right,” said Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates Executive Director Signe Espinoza. “We aren’t going back. We have fought too hard and too long for bodily autonomy and bans are not acceptable. They are regressive, life threatening, and violate the principles of a free society.”
Three digital billboards will roam the state, making important stops at the district offices of legislators who want to control our bodies, crisis pregnancy centers that delay and deny care to pregnant people, and regional health clinics and Planned Parenthood affiliates that are performing essential health care in the face of tyrannical attacks by a vocal minority.
The stops Thursday will include:
District office of State Senate Republican Leader Kim Ward
1075 South Main Street, Suite 116, Westmoreland Crossroads Plaza, Greensburg, PA 15601
Planned Parenthood of Western PA
125 Nature Park Rd, Greensburg, PA 15601
Birthright of Greensburg
121 North Main Street, Suite #100, Greensburg, PA 15601
District office of Senator Doug Mastriano
37 South Main Street, Suite 200, Chambersburg, PA 17201
Tender Care of Hanover
300 John Street, Hanover, PA 17331
District office of House Speaker Bryan Cutler
(plan on a 12p arrival here! Planned Parenthood will be leading an accountability action at the office at the same time)
33 E Friendly Drive, Quarryville, PA 17566
Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Services
121 N. George Street, Millersville, PA 17551
Supporters are welcome to come out and take photos with the billboards, and remind anti abortion crusaders that the vast majority of Pennsylvania supports the right to an abortion, and the right to medical privacy.
