Life Always is at it again. If you don’t remember they are the organization that placed a billboard ad in the SoHo neighborhood in New York claiming “Most Dangerous place for an African American child is in the womb.” Although they use the site Thatsabortion.com as a front for the campaign.
This time around they are targeting Chicago’s south side, predominately black, neighborhoods. The billboard has a depiction of President Obama, who still owns a home on the south side, with the line “Every 21 minutes our next possible leader is aborted.”
I won’t comment just yet on this particular billboard but will leave you with my thoughts on the last one:
It is not a race issue or some vast conspiracy of Planned Parenthood targeting African American neighborhoods. The real matter is accessibility to proper sex education and birth control. Furthermore, the disparities in poverty play a huge role in every day decisions as well as the intimate decision a woman makes with her doctor in regards to an unwanted pregnancy.
The first billboard will be unveiled at 11am. I will be attending.
