Uproar over abortion billboard
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio condemned this new SoHo billboard yesterday, which reads, “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb.”
He called it “grossly offensive,” adding: “This billboard simply doesn’t belong in our city.”
The billboard advertises ThatsAbortion.com, an anti-abortion site that also attacks Planned Parenthood, saying it targets minority neighborhoods for abortions.
Life Always, the group sponsoring the billboard, said the ad is in honor of Black History Month and that they want to save the lives of black babies.
Councilwoman Letitia James said it was “misguided to use Black History Month as a tool to promote this message.”
