COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (SEPTEMBER 11, 2017) – Billboards have been placed in three locations in Colorado Springs, Colorado urging people who work in the abortion industry to quit their jobs.
The locations of the billboards are at 1000 W Fillmore St. and 311 W Colorado Ave. The billboards will run over the course of one month, from now until early October, and are expected to reach about 532,000 people in the vicinity.
“Entering into the Colorado Springs market is a key component of our strategy of reaching as many abortion workers as possible with our message that we are there for them and can help them when they want to leave their jobs,” said Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who now runs And Then There Were None (ATTWN).
According to the Guttmacher Institute, there were about 13,160 abortions in 2014. Additionally, late-term abortionist Warren Hern is based in Colorado, as is Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, the second largest Planned Parenthood affiliate nationally.
The billboards read “NO ONE GROWS UP WANTING TO WORK IN AN ABORTION CLINIC. WE CAN GET YOU OUT. WWW.ABORTIONWORKER.COM”
ATTWN is a Texas-based nonprofit that launched in 2013 working with people across the United States. The organization’s mission is to end abortion from the inside out, helping abortion workers quit their jobs, and even provides them with career counseling, financial help, spiritual direction, and psychological aid. From the beginning of ATTWN's, over 375 abortion workers have quit their jobs in the abortion industry. All services provided by ATTWN are free of charge.
“We are excited about the prospect of reaching more abortion workers than ever with our new billboards in Colorado Springs,” said Johnson. “I never wanted to work in an abortion clinic when I was growing up – and neither did many of our former abortion workers. We all thought it would be different, that we would be helping people, but it was the complete opposite – we were hurting far too many women who came through our doors.”
“We will be there every step of the way for abortion workers who want to quit. We love quitters,” said Johnson. For more information, please see www.abortionworker.com.
