Controversial anti-abortion billboards in Georgia are charging that abortion is making black children an "endangered species." The campaign, sponsored by Georgia Right to Life, highlights the fact that African-American women are three times more likely to have an abortion than white women. Anti-abortion advocates across the country have lauded the strategy: "It's ingenious," said the director of the Life Education and Resource Network. "This campaign is in your face."
But abortion rights supporters blast the strategy as exploitative "To use racist arguments to try to bait black people to get them to be anti-abortion is disgusting," one professor tells AP. "These one-issue approaches are not about saving the black family or black children. It's just a distraction."
