SIGNATURE AD/BILLBOARD CAMPAIGN: This morning after Worship, Kathy Sherrill will be asking you to sign up for the Lorain County Right to Life Signature Ad and Billboard Campaign. These ads will appear in the local news media, electronically produced and printed, on or about January 22, 2018 the 45h anniversary of the U. S. Supreme Court’s decisions legalizing abortion-on-demand for all 9 months of pregnancy. These ads will include Pro-Life educational information and the names of all people who sign up for the ads. Same-theme billboards will be displayed in the Lorain County area during the month of January. The purpose of the ads and billboards is to educate about abortion, and to publicize that many people in the county care about the men, women, and children victimized by abortion. The cost for sign-up is $5.00 PER NAME LINE.
