A Texas based pro-life group has begun to stir things up in the abortion debate by posting billboards in Chicago featuring baby-pictures of Barack Obama that read: "Every 21 minutes, our next possible leader is aborted". The point of the ads is to highlight the high rate of abortion in the minority community.
Recent studies have shown that the abortion rate among African-Americans is far, far higher than any other race, which has led many pro-life groups to focus on the minority community.
Needless to say, the pro-abortion crowd is a little upset.
The Chicago Abortion Fund, a pro-choice group, denounced the billboard. "The ongoing anti-choice movement to target women of color in cities across the country is both despicable and deplorable," it said in a statement. "Not only is the ad attempting to shame black women but placing a picture of the President Obama alongside the message is cynical and misleading."
As the saying goes, the truth hurts.
Life Always, the group which put up the billboard, is planning to do another thirty similar billboards in the Chicago area in the near future. It's most recent (and controversial) billboard featured a headline stating: "The most dangerous place for African Americans is in the womb".
