DES MOINES, Iowa – The Iowa Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders has launched a new statewide $50,000 billboard campaign that exposes the risk of abortion. The campaign is titled #SayLifeIowa.

These pro-life billboards are a response to an ongoing Planned Parenthood #SayAbortion billboard campaign that inaccurately equates human abortion with “healthcare.”

The pro-life campaign features six actual women who were either killed or wounded by abortion, or who rejected abortion. Their stories are told in more detail at Iowans for LIFE website:  www.iowansforlife.org/say-life-iowa.

Four billboards are currently on display in Des Moines on 14th Street (NE & SE), Keo Way, and SW 7th Street. They will run throughout the year. Additional billboards are going up in Council Bluffs, Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Iowa City, Ames, and Cedar Rapids.

The #SayLifeIowa honestly portrays the serious physical and emotional consequences of having an abortion. The Coalition hopes to add additional cities later this year.

The Iowa Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders consists of The Family LeaderIowans for LIFEIowa Right to LifeLutheran Family ServicesRestored By Grace MinistriesThe Thomas More SocietyPersonhood Iowa, and Operation Outcry.
