Feb 23, 2023

A pro-abortion-rights banner has been temporarily taken down in Regina after it was vandalized.

The unknown culprit used black spray paint to change the message from “abortion is healthcare” to “abortion is murder.”

Volunteers who work with the group behind the banner say they won’t be silenced and that the vandalism has only reinforced their desire to create change.

“It reminded us how necessary it is to have this message of ‘abortion is healthcare’ out in the open and out in public place,” said Christine Jones, who lives in Regina and volunteers with Abortion is Healthcare Signs Inc., a non-profit organization.

The non-profit’s mission is to decrease stigma and misinformation around abortion, while advocating for better access to the procedure. Billboards and banners are part of that effort.
