Company Boasts Pro-Life Billboards on Semi-Trucks

"It's our responsibility to have our company honoring God with what we do, and to evangelize in the setting that He has given us. To be honest with you, it's good. It's good business." -Tony Maas
(Cincinnati, OH)—A huge national food manufacturing company in the U.S. does more than just deliver great-tasting prepackaged meals—it delivers them with a pro-life flair.
JTM Food Group, which boasted $100 million in sales just last year, delivers their meals to schools, restaurants, the military, and government organizations using 20 semitrailers, each displaying a prodigious image of a beautiful smiling baby on the rear panel with the words "Life, what a beautiful choice." The bottom reads: "JTM: A Right to Life Company."
"It's our opportunity to witness," said Tony Maas, CEO of the business, which has been family owned and operated for three generations, to LifeSiteNews in an interview. Maas owns and runs JTM along with his three brothers who all share the same pro-life convictions.
"Being confrontational is certainly not what we are seeking, but only to speak the truth with love," he said.
Maas said that his pro-life convictions were passed on to him from his "extremely Catholic" parents and grandparents who believed that with the passage of Roe v. Wade, there would be a need for "much prayer, not just for the babies, but for the mothers who were going to have abortions and for the grief that they would be experiencing."
Maas explained that a culture of life is founded upon the principles that "God has made us," that a man and a woman come together to form a "forever relationship in the sacrament of marriage" through which children are born, and that "strong families" are the building blocks of a flourishing society.
"Being pro-life has been part of our family, and certainly our business", said Maas who is married and the father of five children. "We feel that we should use every avenue we have to bring the message of life to the world."
