Women’s Group Launches New Campaign: “Abortion Access is More Popular Than Trump”

New Campaign To Launch With Plane, Full-Page Ad in Washington Post Express Targeting Right To Life March
WASHINGTON -

On Friday, January 27th, as anti-abortion groups rally in the nation’s Capitol for the annual “March for Life” rally, UltraViolet, a national women’s organization, is launching a new campaign spreading the message that abortion access is more popular than Donald Trump.  To launch the campaign UltraViolet has taken out a full-page ad in The Washington Post Express, a free DC-daily paper, and will be flying a plane over I-495 from 10:30am to 1:30pm ET with the banner reading:

“ABORTION ACCESS MORE POPULAR THAN DONALD TRUMP.”

UltraViolet cites polls showing that 70% of Americans approve of abortion access, while only 43% approve of Donald Trump.

The ad directs views to www.morepopularthantrump.com.

“We know that Donald Trump cares about his approval ratings and doesn’t care about facts. So here is a fact he, and those who will be marching today, will especially hate -- abortion access is more popular than Donald Trump,” said Shaunna Thomas, Co-founder of UltraViolet. “To drive this point home, we’re launching this campaign and timing the launch to today’s march. Like the small number of Americans who support Trump, Americans who support taking away women’s freedom to choose are not the majority.

“Women will never stop standing together to ensure that access to constitutionally-protected reproductive health services is not taken away. A woman’s decision about her body is her choice; not our President’s nor our politicians. Our campaign will drive home this point today and everyday,” added Thomas.

UltraViolet is a powerful and rapidly growing community of people mobilized to fight sexism and create a more inclusive world that accurately represents all women, from politics and government to media and pop culture.
