Controversial New York City Anti-Abortion Billboard
The group's leader who is African American says that the black community needs to wake up and realize what's going on with this practice and that abortion is having a serious impact on the African American demography.. On the other side of the ring, pro-life advocates say comparing a woman's legal right to abortion is absurd. They claim it's insulting to suggest that all African American women do is abort their babies.
Here are the facts: Two out of five pregnancies in New York City end in an abortion, giving the city an overall abortion rate of 41 percent. Among black women in New York City, the abortion rate is reportedly 59.8 percent, while the abortion rate for Hispanic women is 41.3 percent and the rate for white women is 20.4 percent. The rate for abortions among Asian women in New York is 22.7 percent.
I want to hear your thoughts on this. Do you find the ad offensive?
