USCCB office launches ad campaign to dispel myths about abortion

.- The Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a national ad campaign to clear up the misinformation many people have about abortion. The campaign, called the “Second Look Project,” presents basic facts about legal abortion and encourages people to take a reconsider their views on abortion. The campaign coincides with the 32nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the court case that legalized abortion in the United States.

For example, most people don’t know that abortion is legal through all nine months of pregnancy, said Cathy Cleaver Ruse, Esq., director of planning and information for the secretariat. “Most people think an unlimited right to abortion is wrong,” she said.

More than 500 ads will appear on Metro trains and buses in the Washington area in January and February. Ads were also placed in the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the National Catholic Register, America, Commonweal, the New Republic, and the National Review.

The ads direct readers to the Web site: www.secondlookproject.org.
