A series of advertisements in San Francisco are up around Market Street in honor of the Roe vs. Wade Anniversary happening next weekend.
Market Street lamp poles are generally reserved for ads from SFMOMA or the zoo. But this month, we have a feeling the silver banners reading, “U.S. Out of My Uterus” and “Reproductive Rights are Human Rights” might be a bit more eye-catching.
Through the end of the month, dozens of banners by the Silver Ribbon Campaign to Trust Women will be flying proudly over our main thoroughfare to bring attention to reproductive rights. The organization will celebrate the 28th anniversary of the historic Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on January 22, and is aiming to draw attention to the country’s continued struggle. The campaign marks the first time in San Francisco history that the city has displayed banners advocating reproductive rights.
The banners coincide with two events taking place next week, the Trust Women Walk on January 20th and the West Coast Rally for Reproductive Justice on January 21st being put on by The Bay Area Coalition for Reproductive Rights. Check those events out if you are in the area.
I’m beyond shocked that an anti-choice group is angry about these banners.
Love the proactive media!
