Name: “I’m Grateful for my Abortion” Billboard
Location: Cleveland, OH
Context: For decades, anti-choice organizations have used billboards as a space to display graphic, medically innaccurate images and texts about abortion and the “harms of it”. Preterm abortion clinic, one of the most renowned independently owned abortion clinics in the country has started a counter campaign with a series of abortion positive billboards through the city of Cleveland, where they are based.
Relevance: This billboard has become infamous in anti choice communities and praised in pro-choice activist circles. In the age of the Trump Administration, this campaign is part of a larger push not only for abortion access and fair legislation, but abortion positivity.
