TIFFIN, OH — A billboard located on a busy Tiffin street is causing some controversy, and has prompted one resident to start an online petition.

Tiffin Right to Life placed the billboard at the intersection of S. Sandusky St. and W. Market St. in front of Paulette’s.

It depicts a fetus curled up covering an American flag, with the words “A nation that kills its own children is a nation without hope.”

Tiffin resident Molly Maksemetz started an online petition calling for the billboard’s removal.

“This can bring back trauma for people who have had miscarriages or lost their children. This image is disturbing and unnessecary. Kids going to school don’t need to see a dead baby in the mornings. I’m sure theres a more positive way to get a point across,” Maksemetz said.

Over 100 individuals had signed the petition as of Saturday morning. You can view the petition online by clicking here.
