Tell the City of Nelson you'd like them to take down the "Respect Human Life" Banner
This petition made change with 1,409 supporters!
The "Respect Human Life" banner creates unsafe spaces for citizens and visitors. As I walk down the street, the banner is telling me that I do not respect life because of the beliefs that I hold. Implicit in the banner's message is one that shames others. For that reason alone, it needs to go. Whether it is appropriate or not for the city to support such a message, whether the banner meets the council's own guidelines for banners, regardless of the bigger ethical questions raised around issues of MAID and abortion, regardless of issues of freedom of speech - the banner should be taken down because it makes Baker street an unfriendly and unsafe space for many.
