 “The Archdiocese of Atlanta Respect Life ministry does not support any hateful language at the sidewalk which includes shouting, bullying, taunting, condemning, name calling, or threatening. The AoA promotes a prayerful, peaceful, compassionate approach to the mothers, their partners or family members, as well as the abortion facility employees. We ask that you not use large posters with graphic images on the sidewalk specifically. If you feel that showing a graphic image would be appropriate in a specific scenario, we ask that it be within a brochure, and that you ask the individual’s permission to show it to them prior. Thank you for your cooperation as we work to gain successful results through Christ our Lord on the sidewalk of abortion facilities.”
