Racial Billboards On Abortion Spark Controversy - Atlanta News Story

ATLANTA – Controversial billboards are showing up in neighborhoods across Atlanta that claim black children are “an endangered species.”
The group behind the billboards is the anti-abortion organization, The Radiance Foundation. They call the abortion rate among African-Americans “a silent genocide.”
The foundation’s Too Many Aborted campaign is paid for by Georgia’s Right to Life. They’re placing 80 of their massive signs in the Atlanta area to make the public more aware of the million of abortions by black women they said have happened since the 1970s.
“That’s the endangered part of the whole campaign,” explained Ryan Bomberger, the campaign’s creator. “You’ve got millions and millions who are not here because of abortion.”
Some people in the black neighborhoods where the billboards are posted told CBS Atlanta News the message is too harsh.
“It’s not the right message. It’s basically picking us out and saying that we’re having too many abortions and not using protection,” said Tyisha Martin, a black woman who lives near one billboard.
Bomberger admits the billboards are edgy and controversial; they said they’re supposed to be to get people to think seriously about abortion.
“Sometimes people see something that is shocking because it shakes them to their core of beliefs. We believe we have to jolt, not just the African American Community, but the entire public,” said Bomberger.
Bomberger said they’re focusing their efforts mostly on DeKalb and Fulton Counties because that’s where he sees the most need for his message.

All I can say is three cheers for the Radiance campaign!


BTW you NPR link is not working.

The facts back this up! The abortion rates among blacks is significantly higher than it is for whites & other minorities.

**In 2000, while blacks made up 17 percent of live births, they made up more than twice that share of abortions (36 percent). If those aborted children had been born, the number of blacks born would have been slightly over 50 percent greater than it was…**80 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority neighborhoods. foxnews.com/story/0,2933,348649,00.html
** This is racism through murder for profit!
Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wrote, concerning using ministers to influence those who were against abortion & contraception;
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members. " **

Adolf Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf;S**ince the inferior is always numerically superior to the best, the worst would multiply itself so much faster . . . given the same opportunity to survive and procreate… that the best would necessarily be pushed to the background. Therefore a correction in favor of the better must be undertaken. **

50 million murdered by abortion in the US since Roe v. Wade in 1972, tens of millions murdered by Hitler’s thugs, one is blatantly brutal, the other is sinister & built on lies & deception, both were “legal” in their counrties!

Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, Ora Pro Nobis Peccatoribus!


I was standing with others in front of an abortion clinic and two black women approached. They told us that their pastor never brought the issue up in Church.

There is no controversy, the majority of aborted babies are black. The message needs to get out. The message should also get out that rap and a gangsta mentality means you ain’t responsible if “the girl gets fat.” Most black babies are born to single women.
