Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Second Look Project

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is sponsoring a new advertising campaign to dispel myths regarding Roe v. Wade and re-educate the public on the topic of abortion. The campaign, known as the Second Look Project, looks to be promising (Yes, I know I'm actually complimenting the USCCB, and no, I'm not being sarcastic). This Project is much needed.

Part of the Project includes the Roe Reality Check Booklet. Roe Reality Check #1 states:

Myth: "High Court Rules Abortions Legal the First 3 Months."
Fact: Abortion is legal through all 9 months of pregnancy.

Roe Reality Check # 3 states:

Myth: Most Americans favor U.S. abortion law.
Fact: Most Americans actually oppose it.

The USCCB Press Release explains that these and similar ads "are now running in buses and trains throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority system. In addition, 60-second radio spots are being aired in a focused campaign in the Washington, D.C. listening area. Print ads have also been appearing around the anniversary of Roe in major media outlets including the Washington Post and the New York Times."
