Betsy Radcliffe started this petition to Port Authority

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”    U.S. Constitution, First Amendment

The First Amendment protects the right of free speech to all Americans regardless of their religious, cultural, or political views. Pro-abortion groups are pressuring Allegheny County to remove pro-life pregnancy service ads from Port Authority buses. As decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. v Public Service Commission of NY, commercial ads fall under the protection of the first amendment.

Birthright of Pittsburgh is a nonpolitical, interdenominational organization that provides assistance to pregnant women without regard to race, age, religion, or income.The essence of Birthright is love and compassionate support to women faced with difficult decisions regarding the life of their unborn baby. All services are free and kept strictly confidential.

             Please join us in support of our first amendment right to free speech.

Port Authority,

We, the undersigned, support the constitutional right of Birthright to advertise on Port Authority buses. We respectfully request Allegheny County allow Birthright to continue to advertise on these buses.
