Pro-life groups in Chicago unveiled a new billboard PR campaign last night geared towards raising awareness about the disproportionate number of African-American babies that are aborted. The billboard has a picture of President Obama and reads “Every 21 Minutes Our Next Possible Leader Is Aborted”. According to the Guttmacher Institute, the abortion research group originally started by Planned Parenthood, fully 30 percent of the nation’s aborted babies are black, whereas according to the U.S. Census Bureau African-Americans compose 12.3% of the population in the U.S.
While the billboards are simply stating data —there is nothing erroneous or even subjective about the information presented on the billboard — not unlike a recent billboard campaign in New York City, the billboards are drawing angry protests from abortion proponents.
The truth hurts.
