(CBS4) – A controversial billboard advertising Colorado as a safe space for abortions has some applauding the state for its progressive views, while others are left worried that it implies Colorado condones murder. The billboard, paid for by “Keep Abortion Safe,” is featured along I-70 eastbound, for those visiting Colorado from Utah.
Keep Abortion Safe co-founder Fawn Bolak said her organization paid for the billboard in hope that it would encourage those in neighboring states to consider Colorado for any of their reproductive medical needs.
“The goal of the billboard was meant to be a bold message to our neighbors coming in. That they are now entering a state that respects and allows them to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions,” Bolak said. “We also have instances of folks traveling from all over the country to come to Colorado for the access we have.”
