    A British advertising company caved into a pro-abortion politician’s pressuring this week and removed pro-life billboards that showed a developing baby in the womb. The Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform UK recently paid to run billboards in British Labour MP Stella Creasy’s district to draw attention to her radical pro-abortion agenda. Creasy, who represents Walthamstow, is behind the push to force Northern Ireland to legalize abortion. The billboards showed the image of a nine-week-old unborn baby and the website The baby has tiny hands and feet, eyes, nose and ears. Abortion activists slammed it as misleading, claiming the baby must...

    A pro-life billboard exposing Canada’s radical pro-abortion laws was taken down recently after abortion activists complained. Pro-life advocates in Canada do not have the same free speech rights that pro-lifers in America do. The billboard, which read “Our right to life does not depend on location” beside pictures of a pregnant woman and someone holding a baby, had to be taken down because of a ruling by the Ad Standards council, according to Global News Canada. The Kelowna Right to Life Society paid for the billboard to run along the highway in West Kelowna for more than a year, the...

    Fresh off a legislative victory for the billboard industry at Nationals Park, Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans’ attempt to preserve a loophole for digital sign companies doing business in the District seemed inevitable—especially given his close ties with the vendor that stands to benefit the most. Evans recently introduced an emergency bill that would provide a permit exemption in certain cases—a boon for Digi Media Communications LLC, which already has installed numerous signs in violation of city rules and is looking to install dozens more throughout the District.

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was one of the earlier 2020 candidates to propose breaking up the largest tech companies and potentially having the government regulate them like utilities. It’s a mantra she’s repeated on the campaign trail on a regular basis. But now she’s doubling down on the message with a campaign tactic that may not make the most sense. Her team has put up a massive billboard on the subject, which isn’t all that unusual for a political campaign. It’s the location that makes it peculiar. She put it up right in Silicon Valley near many of the Big...

    For the legion of rich and famous in New York, the unofficial start of summer means migrating east by luxury vehicle to the Hamptons, that slice of exclusivity at the end of Long Island. But this Memorial Day weekend they were greeted with a jarring new sight along an otherwise piney, bucolic stretch of Sunrise Highway, the main artery leading to the Hamptons: two six-story illuminated billboards being hastily constructed by a local Native American tribe just in time for the high season. Tall enough to rise above much of the tree line of this state roadway, the twin billboards...

    WORTHINGTON, Pa. - A message on a billboard in our area is upsetting some people. “First time I saw it was just complete and utter shock," said Michael Allshouse. He told Channel 11 he almost stopped dead in his tracks when he came across the billboard on Route 422 next to Worthington. “I don’t see it as thought-provoking. I don’t see it as instigating thoughtful discussion as much as it is provoking and agitating," he said. The messages dissolve from “whites have rights” to one about Jussie Smollett -- the actor involved in the hoax attack in Chicago. “I do...
