On Feb. 28, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington asked the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to investigate “an ongoing and misleading ad campaign currently running on WMATA vehicles, and run by ‘The Second Look Project,’ which is sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.”
Just what are the ads? The two spotlighted by CREW were these:

The USCCB corroborated the facts behind the ads on its website:

While some news media and polls still say the Court legalized abortion only in the first three months, in fact it made abortion legal through all nine months of pregnancy, effectively striking down the abortion laws of all 50 states.
In Roe v. Wade, the Court ruled that abortion may not be prohibited or restricted in the first trimester (first three months). In the second trimester abortion must still be allowed, and may be regulated only to serve the mother’s health. Even after “viability,” when the child is developed enough to survive outside the womb, abortion must still be allowed if needed to preseve the mother’s “health.” Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton, defined maternal “health” to include “all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age – relevant to the well-being of the patient.
Thus abortion must be allowed, even in the ninth month, if a woman would be upset about continuing her pregnancy. James McMahon, M.D. has cited “youth” or “depression” among his reasons for performing late-term partial-birth abortions. Martin Haskell, M.D. has said most of the partial-birth abortions he performed up to about 25 weeks were “elective.” George Tiller, M.D. has done elective abortions thorugh 25 weeks and “fetal indication” abortions (to kill handicapped chidlren) through 38 weeks.
