In the wake of the release by the New York City Health Dept. of abortion statistics showing 60% of black pregnancies in Gotham end in abortion, the group Life Always has just erected a huge billboard spotlighting the truth that “the most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb.”

The billboard comes conveniently at a time when the NYC Council is considering a  bill that targets pregnancy care centers and also during Black History Month.

But the target of the billboard is Planned Parenthood, according to the group’s press release

The billboard is about half a mile from one of three New York City Planned Parenthood abortion facilities which jointly reported nearly 17,000 abortions in 2010….

The campaign launch is designed to raise public awareness of PP’s targeting of minority neighborhoods….

PP’s annual report states that they perform 300,000+ abortions annually.

… which makes the billboard also timely regarding attempts on the federal level to stop taxpayer funding to PP.

Already Life Always’ billboard, which directs people to a website with an amazing name, has garnered worldwide media attention. The Telegraph’s headline said the billboard “sparks outrage.” Pro-aborts are understandably apoplectic. According to CNN:

“They’re attacking women for choosing abortion while simultaneously destroying family planning,” said spokeswoman Mary Alice Carr for the NY-based National Institute for Reproductive Health. “Their hypocrisy is as large and as obnoxious as this billboard.”

I’ll tell you what’s obnoxious, Mary. Supporting a type of “family planning” that results in more abortions than not. According to Guttmacher 54% of girls and women were using contraception the month they got pregnant.

Added the Huffington Post:

But some local politicians, like City Council Member Letitia James [pictured right], find the message crass.

“It is misguided to use Black History Month as a tool to promote this message,” James said in a statement. “Every woman has the right to make personal choices in regards to her body, and I respect many different points of view, but to compare abortion to terrorism and genocide is highly offensive.”

I’ll tell you what’s crass and offensive, Letitia: an African-American targeting more African-Americans for genocide, as you’re doing by co-sponsoring Bill #371.

PP will sponsor a rally for support this weekend, headlined by goats and has beens, according to The Gothamist:

In a statement, PP called the billboard “a reprehensible tactic. PP knows that every woman, of every background, takes her health decisions seriously and makes deeply personal decisions after consulting with her doctor and with loved ones she trusts.”

This Saturday, pro-choice groups will be holding a rally to protest a recent bill passed in the House of Representatives that would block federal funding to PP. The rally will be held at Foley Square, downtown by City Hall, from 1 to 3 p.m. Gloria Steinem and Kathleen Turner are among the scheduled speakers, and Kathleen Hanna, Nellie McKay and The Mountain Goats will perform.

It would be great to read Sunday that more pro-lifers turned out for this event than pro-aborts, especially activists holding huge photos showing what PP does.
