A new billboard campaign in Montgomery County is bringing attention to the pro-life movement.

The Montgomery County Right to Life organization launched the campaign about two weeks ago in hopes of sparking conversation among those who see it about their views on the “sanctity of life,” organizers said. The billboard, located on Texas 105 West near Old Highway 105 in Conroe, depicts a young girl from the area who has Down syndrome, a young couple with an ultrasound photo and an elderly woman under the words “Every life … Priceless.”

With Montgomery County being a hub of conservatisms, there might not be too many people whose values differ from the pro-lifers. But MCRTL Director Teresa Strack said the billboard aims to create a dialogue for not only those in the county, but others as well.

“Our community is staunchly pro-life,” Strack said. “Our community members have friends outside our community; and the more they’re thinking about why they believe life should be valuable, they’re better equipped to have those conversations with other people who maybe aren’t necessarily quite as convinced.”

U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands, helped spearhead the funding of the billboard campaign, Strack said. While Brady could not be reached for comment Monday while in Washington, D.C., he said in a statement he fully supports the campaign.

“Montgomery County Right to Life’s billboard campaign makes a powerful pro-life message with great beauty and dignity,” Brady stated. “All children are gifts from God and should be celebrated.”

Other local elected officials threw their support behind the campaign, including:

State Sen. Robert Nichols, R-Jacksonville

State Rep. Cecil Bell, R-Magnolia

State Rep. Mark Keough, R-The Woodlands

State Rep. Will Metcalf, R-Conroe
