Abortion Ad To Use Obama

 CHICAGO -- Life Always, the organization behind New York City's controversial "Dangerous Place" billboard last month, is initiating another campaign – this time in

 
"Our future leaders are being aborted at an alarming rate. These are babies who could grow to be the future Presidents of the United States, or the next Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington or Maya Angelou," said Life Always Board Member Reverend Derek McCoy.
 
The billboard states: "Every 21 minutes, our next possible leader is aborted." The image of President Obama faces the capitalized word "leader." 
 
Over 30 billboards will be placed in South Chicago to encourage reflection on the disproportionate number of abortions among African Americans. Census and CDC reports state that African Americans comprise less than 13 percent of the population and about 36 percent of the country's abortions.
 
The Illinois Department of Public Health reported 25,196 abortions in Cook County, IL in 2009.
 
"The potential of a community lies in its children," said Board Member Pastor Stephen Broden. "If we aren't having them, our potential is lost."
 
Life Always' New York City billboard was removed by the billboard company, however they remain committed to continuing to raise awareness and exercising first amendment rights of free speech to bring awareness to the tragedy of abortion.
