A pro-life billboard offering hope to women who regret taking the abortion pill was vandalized last week in Corinth, Mississippi.
Indecline, a radical leftist group that describes itself as an activist art collective, admitted to the crime, according to Brooklynn Street Art.
Photos posted on the website show how abortion activists painted over information about the life-saving abortion pill reversal treatment and made the billboard an advertisement for abortion drugs instead.
“Abortion pills are available by mail,” the vandals wrote across the billboard; they also painted a website address for abortion pills that takes visitors to the Shout Your Abortion website.
Amelia Bonow, a prominent abortion activist and founder of the Shout Your Abortion campaign, celebrated the vandalism on Twitter over the weekend.

“That’s better!” she wrote, posting before and after photos of the billboard.
The original billboard told women that if they have taken the abortion pill, it may not be too late to reverse the deadly drug and save their baby’s life, according to the photos. It also included a phone number for women to call for more information. The treatment is safe and effective for both mother and child, and approximately 3,000 babies have been saved so far.
Anyone who has taken the first abortion pill and wishes to stop the abortion is urged to immediately visit www.abortionpillreversal.com or call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline at 877-558-0333.
Andrea Trudden, a spokeswoman for Heartbeat International, which runs the abortion pill reversal hotline, told LifeNews that the vandalism will hurt the very people that abortion activists claim to want to help: women.
“While some feel this may be an appropriate form of protest, they completely ignore the fact that they are purposely denying a woman the right to try and save her baby’s life,” Trudden said. “Not to mention the fact that they are advocating for harmful abortion drugs to be sent via mail through their work, dismissing women’s safety. Their ‘protest’ will hurt women.”
The billboard appears to be sponsored by the Oasis Medical Center, a pro-life organization in Corinth that provides free services to pregnant and parenting mothers. LifeNews contacted Oasis Medical Center about the vandalism but did not receive a response.
Last year, Indecline admitted to vandalizing another Mississippi billboard, painting over a Christian message with the words, “Worried? Planned Parenthood offers abortions.” Indecline also took credit for desecrating a 67-foot statue of Jesus in Arkansas by hanging a banner with the words “God Bless Abortions” written in red across it.
Abortion activists are growing increasingly aggressive and violent. In the past week, as the U.S. marked the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, LifeNews reported about abortion activists throwing smoke bombs at pro-life students in Texas and projecting disgusting pro-abortion messages onto a prominent Catholic Church in the nation’s capital.
In New York City, abortion activists screamed, “Go to h—, b—-!” and “F— you!” at families with young children and others as they left the annual Prayer Vigil for Life at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, The Catholic News Agency reports.
And earlier this month, a Nebraska man was arrested for allegedly threatening to “f— up” pro-life advocates while wielding a metal bar at them outside an abortion facility in Lincoln.
Along with the violence of abortion against unborn babies, threats and violence against pro-life advocates also have increased in recent years. LifeNews.com has documented reports of hundreds of incidents in the past several years, including arson, bomb threats, assaults, death threats and vandalism.
