Aldermen please remove the illegal billboards!

On March 29, 2011, a Texas-based pro-life organization began installing billboards with an anti-abortion message on the South Side of Chicago. They use an image of President Obama to discourage African American women from their legally protected rights to a full range of reproductive health options. Since then, we have learned that these billboards are unpermitted, and a violation of City of Chicago signage ordinances (Chapter 17-12). The billboards are the result a private deal with Lake Outdoor Advertising and the landowner at 5812-20 S. State Street, and thus an illegal use of public land for private profit.

We the undersigned ask Chicago Aldermen to remove these offensive and illegal billboards down right away!
