In New York State Planned Parenthood has set up billboards which declare support for LGBT citizens and show images of same sex couples with such phrases as “Someone you know is in love.”
Well, could conservative objection be that far behind?…
While Planned Parenthood says the billboards aim to engage isolated rural LGBT people in managing their health, state senator Thomas O’Mara, a Republican who represents the area, interprets the billboards as a state-sponsored advertisement for marriage equality. WETM TV, which first reported on the controversy, included his comments about one of the billboards on Route 352 in Big Flats near Elmira.
“I object to this message that seems to be in support of same-sex marriage and using taxpayer dollars to support that political agenda,” he told the station.
