New Anti-Abortion Billboards Offensive to All

Earlier this week, the National Black ProLife Coalition, in conjunction with, announced the launch of another anti-choice billboard campaign in Atlanta and other major metropolitan areas. These billboards are designed to offend, featuring slogans such as “The 13th Amendment Freed-Abortion Enslaves” and “Abortion Makes Three-Fifths Human Seem Overly Generous.”

According to the press release, these billboards are supposed to show “how Roe v. Wade has made a mockery of Civil Rights history by offering destruction and bondage instead of possibility and freedom,” but in reality they just show the insensitivity of some pro-life organizations. Timed to coincide with Juneteenth, a day celebrating the abolition of slavery, one billboard company refused to display the images, though another eventually accepted.
