A new bus-stop billboard put up by anti-choice activists near a NYC Planned Parenthood hits an all new low in taste:
It takes a lot to do this, but I'm speechless.
Found on 6th Ave. and Watts Street, merely 3 blocks away from a Soho Planned Parenthood Clinic, the ad portrays an adorable African-American toddler with the text “The Most Dangerous Place For An African-American Child Is In The Womb.”
Their website, which I visited for the purposes of this post, claims that our generation is being wiped out due to abortions. Um, newsflash? Our Earth isn’t even going to have the resources to feed our population by the year 2050, and that’s assuming the aliens from Independence Day don’t get here first. If these people really cared about stopping abortions and lowering our population crisis, they should stop worrying about women’s bodies and start a campaign encouraging castration.
There is so much wrong with the thinking behind this ad campaign that even trying to formulate a tempered response is giving me a migraine.
I really wish that these anti-choice people gave even the littlest bit of energy to caring about the conditions in which most African Americans live and trying to fix that than they do to such horrifically racist and ugly ads.
