Pro Life Bridges Day


July 25, 2022

For immediate release: In the wake of Dobbs v. Jackson ruling, Cincinnati is one of a dozen cities joining National Pro-Life Bridges Day to declare “Abortion takes a human life.”

On Friday, July 29, 2022, pro-life volunteers will hold two large banners on the Dorothy Court bridge over Interstate 75, reaching commuters in both directions of traffic with the message that “Abortion takes a human life.” The group will hold their banners on the overpass from 7:00 a.m. to 9 a.m., and again from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., as part of National Pro-Life Bridges Day. This will take place in dozens of cities throughout the United States.

“In this post-Roe America, with abortion laws in flux across the country and lawsuits being filed on both sides, our message that ‘Abortion takes a human life’ is more important than ever” explained Mo Riggins, of Cincinnati Right to Life, who is organizing the banner display in Cincinnati. “Our goal for National Pro-Life Bridges Day on July 29 is to highlight for Cincinnati area commuters that, regardless of the changing legal landscape, every abortion involves the same tragedy: the violent destruction of an innocent human life.”

This nationwide day of public outreach is being coordinated by the Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League. Cincinnati is one of dozens of locations where National Pro-Life Bridges Day is being held. Other cities include Los Angeles, California; Manchester, New Hampshire; Charleston, South Carolina; and Memphis, Tennessee. The suburbs of Chicago, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. Organizers expect to reach more than 2 million highway commuters during National Pro-Life Bridges Day.
