Letter: Billboard an oversimplification of complex matter

I find the billboard extremely simplistic and insensitive, ignoring the complexities involved for women facing pregnancy complications.

To the editor:

Re:  May 4, 2016 letter by Yvonne Callihan “Keep opinions off billboards”

I want to thank Yvonne Callihan for her letter. Having heard several people mention how offended they were after seeing this billboard, it was good to see someone put their thoughts in a letter.

Personally, I find the billboard extremely simplistic and insensitive, ignoring the complexities involved for women facing pregnancy complications.

The fact that such oversimplification is deemed to be the Kelowna Right to Life society’s chosen method to further their efforts to ban any and all abortions in Canada is an indication of their lack of concern for the complexities involved in such life changing decisions.

Maybe those folks who are offended might want to contact the agency responsible: Kelowna Right to Life.
