Alabama Senators and House Representatives have voted to pass a law that will essentially ban abortions. The bill provides no exceptions for rape and incest.
Republicans and other supporters of this law do not care about reducing abortions. They care about political grandstanding, scoring points and being unapologetically self-righteous. And they’re willing to spend millions of taxpayer dollars doing just that. The net result of Alabama’s abortion ban is not a preservation of life, and certainly not an improvement of the lives currently in Alabama. It is politicians pushing a political agenda that will help them raise money and get re-elected.
Alabama currently has over six million visitors each year and a population of around 4.8 million people, and we feel it necessary to greet travelers as well as native Alabamians with new Welcome billboards.
We’re asking for donations to put up billboards that state “Welcome to Gilead” along with the information about the politicians who voted on the bill.
