Dubuque County Right to Life announces Phase II of campaign against PP
A year ago, when
Planned Parenthood opened a facility in Dubuque, Iowa, it hit a brick wall
of opposition from Dubuque County Right to Life, an American Life League
Associate group. The group decried this new “pipeline to abortion” and made
good on its promise to have a peaceful, prayerful daily presence outside the
center during business hours.
On the first anniversary of the PP facility’s opening, DCRTL executive
director Steven Brody announced that his group is launching “a year-long
multimedia advertising campaign that will utilize yard signs, digital
billboards and stationary billboards, newspaper and radio,” according to
Brody’s e-mail to Jill Stanek. The messages will challenge PP to defend
itself by exposing the truth about the organization.
The billboards feature a poignant image of a blood-red child’s hand with a
heart in the center. The logo can be seen on its
Protest PP web site.
Jill Stanek features photos of two of the billboards on her web site.
At the August 17
press conference unveiling Phase II of its plan, Brody explained his
organization’s reasons for conducting such an intense educational campaign
We believe that our children need to be protected from sexual predators
in the community. We believe that families and the home are the places where
sensitive discussions about sexuality should occur. But most importantly, we
value life, as does a majority of Americans, based on recent polling
conducted by major organizations such as Gallup, Harris, Rasmussen, Fox
News, and Pew. We cherish and celebrate God’s creation. No child, created by
God, should ever be sacrificed due to any alleged excuse of inconvenience.
We will continue to be the voice for those who have no voice, and represent
their right to life, just as we have done for the past 25 years.
