Black Anti-Abortion Billboards Unveiled In Atlanta

ATLANTA - A group of African-American anti-abortion groups todayed gathered to unveil their latest ad, which is titled “Betrayed” and displays a link to a site that shows photos of African-American leaders (like Rev. Jesse Jackson) alongside the word “Betrayed!” in red.  

Black News, African American News, Minority News, Civil Rights News, Discrimination, Racism, Racial Equality, Bias, Equality, Afro American NewsCatherine Davis, founder of the Restoration Project and other prolife leaders launched a new, bold billboard today in downtown Atlanta. Betrayed, calls attention to the pro-abortion views of many African-American leaders. The billboard is posted on the corner of Spring and Marietta Streets and is linked to www.abortioninthehood.com.

"Something is wrong," said Catherine Davis of the Restoration Project, "when those elected to protect the interests of their constituents turn a blind eye to the horrific impact that abortion is wreaking on the black community. In New York City, for every 1,000 black babies born alive, 1,489 are aborted. In Washington, D.C. for every 100 black babies born alive, 165 are aborted! Something is wrong!"

"Can't we at least ask the hard questions about these numbers," asked Day Gardner of the National Black Prolife Union. "Pro-abortion groups cry racism when black prolife leaders point out the depopulation effect of abortion. I say yes racism is a factor, not on the part of pro-lifers, but on the part of those who want us to continually stream into the clinics to kill our children. All black leaders should help stop it or stay home."

Star Parker from CURE urges that we to look at the facts: "When you look at the data on what is occurring in our urban communities, you find that one out of every two and a half pregnancies is being terminated. It is imperative that our leaders examine what we know is the targeting of black women and children. We don't need to wait until it is too late like we did with the Tuskegee study, later looking back to ask why somebody didn't do something."

"It's outrageous that Margaret Sanger's Negro Project to control the birth rate of Blacks is alive and thriving today because so many black leaders have sold their constituents the lie that abortion is the key to emancipating African-American women," said Dr. Alveda King of Priests for Life. "Abortion kills babies and hurts women and families. These pro-abortion voices are not the voices of Black America."

"In its 2008 tax filing, Planned Parenthood acknowledged their mission is to achieve a 'US population of stable size.' What that means to black people," said Connie Eller of Missouri Blacks for Life, is they will continue to prey upon black women and children. We say no more, no way."

"For thirty-nine years the abortionists have preyed upon black women and children, sometimes not only taking the lives of our babies, but the lives of women as well. We are falling to our knees all across America asking for divine intervention. At the same time we are calling on our leaders to take action against the predatory acts of abortionists," said DeHaviland Ford of the 818 The Sign movement.
