Georgia pro-life groups launch ‘Black and Unwanted’ billboard campaign

.- A pro-life billboard campaign called “Black and Unwanted” has been launched in Georgia to increase awareness of the “devastating” impact of abortion on Georgia’s black community and to highlight the need for more adoptions.

The new campaign is co-sponsored by Georgia Right to Life and the Radiance Foundation.

The billboard shows a teary-eyed young black child’s face on a dark black background. The words “Black & Unwanted” run across the top of the billboard while the website address TooManyAborted.com is displayed at its base.

Over 60 billboards have been placed in Augusta, Macon and Savannah, Georgia Right to Life reports. The pro-life group says that Georgia is among the leading states in the number of reported abortions performed on black women, with 18,901 in 2008 alone.

"This project is going to continue as long as women are being lied to and the killing of black children is seen as our 'best' way to end poverty,” explained Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach for Georgia Right to Life. “Women need to know all their options and expose the lies that Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers have been spreading for years."

"Our children are our heritage, our strength and the abortion community has reduced our legacy to the status of a parasite, something to be eliminated rather than cherished,” she continued, predicting that the campaign will begin to restore value to black children in Georgia and the U.S. as a whole.

The billboard was created by Ryan Bomberger, co-founder of the Radiance Foundation. He said the emphasis of the campaign on black Americans and abortion is that Centers for Disease Control figures show African-Americans have abortions at three times the rate of white women and twice the rate of all other races combined.

"Abortion is being used as birth control and increasingly encouraged by groups like Planned Parenthood,” he commented.

According to Bomberger, in 2008 Planned Parenthood “aborted 65 children for every 1 client they referred for adoption; that's 305,310 abortions to 4,912 adoption referrals."

The website of the campaign, www.TooManyAborted.com, provides more information as well as professionally made videos.
