More anti-Choice billboards targeting black men

Anti-choice groups have not stopped at simply declaring abortion black genocide or the mass murder of Latino children, now we’ve moved on to shaming black men.

New billboards have popped up in California with the words, “Fatherhood begins in the womb” with a black man and what appears to be his pregnant partner.

Via BET.com:

The abortion industry has created a culture of abandonment. Responsibility has become someone else’s concern, and death the solution to ‘unplanned’ pregnancies — the natural result of sexual behavior,” Ryan Bomberger, Black pro-life and adoption advocate, told LifeNews.com. “There’s nothing natural about an industry that generates over $200 million, annually, by killing a child left defenseless by the absence of a father.”

Bullshit. Reproductive choice is the law. Unplanned pregnancies do not result in abortion because of black men and women avoiding responsibility, many times it’s because they lack of resources to raise a child. I would argue that this is the definition of responsibility. No matter the reason it is a right under federal law to make that determination.

Abortion rights for all women are being targeted and the shaming of black women in particular for their legal choices is disgusting. Same goes for shaming black men.

Perhaps these not so pro-life groups could focus their energy in creating billboards of black men like Troy Davis who are on death row about to be executed for crimes they didn’t commit. Seems they only care about people who aren’t alive and walking the earth.

The fact that the not so pro-life movement remains silent on the state sponsored murder of an innocent man proves they don’t really care about LIFE. But we already knew that.

    I totally agree, y’all need to start using “pro-fetus” a term that’s stronger than merely “anti-choice”, i mean do you ever see those self-appointed pro-life activists advocating for the environment or to better the lives of CHILDREN? Look at all the hazards and dangers facing american children whether sexist media (y’all know a lot about that!) or poisonous toys made in china or working parents who still struggle to raise their children adequately. All you hear are CRICKETS from those howling over women being people and making their own reproductive decisions.
