NEWS: NYC "Abortion" Ad Causing A Storm Of Controversy Nationwide

So as I was making my way downtown in NYC 2 days ago, I came across this very billboard.  I was literally sitting in traffic with my mouth open with shock.

 

A 3-story-tall-billboard strategically placed at the busy intersection of Watts and 6th Ave. in Soho is causing a sh*tstorm of controversy across the nation.  And today it's hitting the fan.  Check out the "right-to-life" extremist's newest antic to get attention via shock value...at black children's expense...when you read on...

The arguments against this ad even being allowed to be put up in New York state that this is purely irresponsible, regardless of the message's meaning.  Children who view the ad cannot process complicated issues or underlying messages the way adults can, so this runs the very high risk of scaring and/or humiliating the child reading it.

Here's the run-down of the who and what and why people are so up in arms this week:

"The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb," reads the inflammatory ad sponsored by the Dallas-based pro-life group "Life Always."

The three-story billboard at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Watts Street features an elementary-school aged African-American girl looking out at viewers with a plaintive expression, wearing a bow in her hair and a sleeveless pink jumper dress. The ad directs passersby to the group's website, thatsabortion.com.

Life Always leader, Pastor Stephen Broden, who is African-American, said that his group intentionally released a billboard that would elicit a reaction.

"The black community is oblivious to what is going on with this practice," Broden, 58, said about abortion rates in the African-American community.

"This is far from hyperbole, these are facts and statistically back up that abortion is having an impact on the demography of African-Americans," he said.

According to New York City's latest Vital Statistics report with data from 2009, two out of five pregnancies in New York City end in an abortion, giving the city an overall abortion rate of 41 percent.

Among black women in New York City, the abortion rate is reportedly 59.8 percent, while the abortion rate for Hispanic women is 41.3 percent and the rate for white women is 20.4 percent. The rate for abortions among Asian women in New York is 22.7 percent.

Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn both criticized the ad, with de Blasio calling for it to come down.

"To refer to a woman's legal right to an abortion as a 'genocidal plot' is not only absurd, but it is offensive to women and to communities of color," Quinn wrote in a statement of Broden's claim that the high abortion rates among minority women amounted to genocide.

Mae Collazo, 38, who works across the street from the billboard, said she found the billboard incredibly offensive.

"I don't like it all, what is that supposed to mean?" said Collazo, who is African American, "It makes it sound like all we do is abort our children."

Collazo added that she didn't think the higher percentage of abortions registered for African American women in New York necessarily reflect what is actually going on in the community, and questioned the source of the statistics and whether abortions conducted at private clinics are included in the statistics.

But some passersby agreed with the ad.

Patti D'Agostini, 48, who works at the Door Youth Center on Broome Street, said she works with many teen mothers.

"I don't believe in abortion," D'Agostini said. "Kids shouldn't be having sex until they're 18 anyways."

Broden said his organization will remain in the city for another three weeks before kicking off similar ad campaigns in six other cities around the country.

Also, people believe it is unnecessarily targeting black women--making this an extremely racist and humiliating and disgusting "ad".

But, as usual, the folks behind the ad (the leader is a black pastor from Dallas named Stephen Broden of the Life Always organization) defend their actions saying they put the ad in a majority white neighborhood in order to get attention.  And they say the ad is actually for the greater good of showing the bad side of abortions, especially for black women, so people will be less likely to get them.

I have my own views on this topic and this specific billboard itself, and the fact that essentially this "pastor" is saying he's willing to exploit and humiliate black women at the "bigger" price of publicity, but I digress.  Living in the south and also doing my undergrad years in Texas made me privy to these very issues and types of people on almost a daily basis.  So I'm shocked, but I shouldn't be.

But how do you feel about this o fab ones?  And what measures, if any, should be taken now that this advertisement has permeated the nation.

Someone commented that

Someone commented that abortion is LEGAL, as though that justifies it. Please, remember that slavery was LEGAL in this country. Just because something is LEGAL to do does NOT make it right! What if in 10 years from now, they decide to make it LEGAL to allow parents to start killing their BORN children and call it toddler abortion or whatever. If that sounds evil to you, then realize that is because it IS evil. So, is abortion! Go look at some 3D ultrasounds and tell me that those are not babies. That billboard is not racist. It's the opposite actually. The point is that abortion, whether legal or not is RACIST. I think the statistics of African-American abortions should be way more offensive to people, especially African-Americans, than a billboard that is trying to show the racism in abortion! Don't be an ostrich and bury yours heads in the sand!

Wow, this is quite

Wow, this is quite interesting. If African Americans still don't understand or accept the politics played when it comes to African American/black people as a whole then it's confirmed that WHITES have every reason to do what they are doing. Maybe slavery can be justified, Martin Luther king or civil rights leaders fought for nothing and this is the fate of Black people. If black people vote for democrats because they feel like they care for black people and if black people hate Republicans because they feel like they are bunch of White racists, then I can confidently say that Black people are doomed.

Abortion is the most cruel,

Abortion is the most cruel, selfish, irresponsible thing a woman can do to an innocent life. None of us asked to be in this world so why should an unborn child suffer because mom and dad don't want to step up to the plate. Even the dumbest person on the planet knows how babies are made so why do the act if you're not willing to deal with the outcomes in a humane way. Abortion is murder. Ladies, before u get an abortion ask yourself what if your mother did the same thing to you.

what's wrong with abortions?

what's wrong with abortions? i've had several myself. don't regret not one of them and neither do any of the guys who were off the hook for taking care of an unwanted child. now don't get it twisted, if you have an abortion, you are killing your child but sometimes it's necessary. who's going to adopt black children? we languish in adoption agencies while americans got to asian and african contries. let's dwell in reality people!

Look at the stats-59.8% seems to me the billboard has a ring of truth to it. Everyone who is up in arms and "offended" should just get the hell over it. What is more offensive? Proclaiming the stats on a billboard-or the stats themselves? Unplanned pregnancy is completely preventable!!!! Instead of whining about being offended and proclaiming "your right to choose" try something new and be responsible-ever hear of condoms people? Birth control bills? WOW! What a concept!

These billboards are also

These billboards are also featured in various sites in Houston. I would like to add that the ads do not always feature African Americans. Equating abortion rates to genocide is a far reach. However, we tend to overlook that all of these statistics come from public health care providers ( such as planned parenthood) and that these public health care providers are required to disclose information via statistics while private health care providers do not. Also we dismiss that Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist. We all need to look into eugenics deeply. I am pro choice but we also have to be careful with what we are doing to our bodies and we must protect our reproductivity.

Oh, yes, because people are just FLOCKING left and right to spend a few dozen GRAND on adopting a child. Oh, you know, pay no mind whatsoever to the fact that poverty is rampant and some people can't afford to pay their bills, no matter how well off they might seem. Or, all of the hundred thousand and more children already waiting to be adopted, who WON'T be. So yes, let's all just rush out right now and adopt, adopt, adopt! I expect you'll be doing that yourself, then? Since you're so pro-life and pro-adoption, I'm sure you've adopted MANY children!

Regarding the billboard, it's

Regarding the billboard, it's not what you say but how you say it and as my husband always says, you can catch more bees with sugar than sh*t. Believe me when I say this is not about pro-life. People should stop believing every damn thing they SEE on a biased billboard placed by biased assh*les.... Most white women have their abortions performed by their private doctors who are not obligated to report the percentage of abortions they perform. Planned parenthoods and other government funded facilities are required by law to report their percentage of abortions. With issues like this there is no gray area, unfortunately. So if my 12 year old child was raped and became pregnant as a result or if having a baby would kill them both, or for any other reason I see fit, hell YES I am pro-choice. Black women...I agree in that we do need to start planning to have children in advance but I will not judge any of you. I will say this....IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE PART OF A BIASED GOVERNMENT STATISTIC STOP GOING TO GOVERNMENT FACILITIES. When you begin to utilize the government they take away ALL of your rights including PRIVACY. They will always be in your business and will therefore ALWAYS make an inaccurate statistic of you! GO TO YOUR FAMILY DOCTORS!!
Are you serious??????'s picture

It's important to be mindful

It's important to be mindful of a few things. First, Black women are disproportionately economically challenged, hence the usage of PP and other such facilities. Secondly, many/most private OBs will only perform an abortion under very specific circumstances that are most likely to hinge around congenital defects in a fetus, danger to a mother's life, etc. Third, in this climate of gendered violence, it is VERY hard for women to find a local abortion provider outside of spaces like PP. There are enough anti-choice groups the target (and murder/bomb) abortion providers and clinics. So, it's not a simple thing to just "go to your family doctor."
Phoenix's picture

you are very correct. the

you are very correct. the stats are usually turned to make black people look worse. its been done for years. if u take stats in a low income clinic in low income mostly minority area those are the results u get. stastics are like bible verses, picked carefully and out of context to push an agenda. black people stop believing the worst of yourself especially when its not true. a few weeks ago a study came out stating a HUGE percentage of african american women were mothers and unwed. how is that so when 60% abort. smh not true.

The billboard has been taken

The billboard has been taken down because people were planning to boycott it. On the other hand, we people of color must start planning to have children in advance;we must also learn to take our time and be more selective of our partners and we can prevent abortion.We live in a society that is controlled by racist Europeans and unfortunately, we are the ones chosen to always be put in a negative spotlight. Personally,I am against abortion, but several women besides African American are also getting abortions -funny they were not put on the spotlight!

Regardless if it is true, it

Regardless if it is true, it is the fact that we are, once again, singled out. Do I think that African Americans need to be more responsible for their actions and how they, one person, can effect our race as a whole? Of course I do, but they are putting in mostly white neighborhoods. How is that helping us when most of the ones with the problems will never come in contact with it? Seems like it is to embarrass us. Once again, Africans Americans are the big joke around the world, and it needs to stop. THIS IS NOT MAKING IT BETTER! Where are these people behind the billboard handing out condoms and educating the youth about the dangers of unprotected sex. Everyone sits on the THE YBF and talks this big game but it doesn't matter. Most Africans Americans don't realize the power in our own race. We are SO much better than that billboard and the things that other races say about us, but we have to PULL IT TOGETHER ASAP!

The only reason this offends

The only reason this offends is because its true. Don't care if the statistics are from Gov't facilities, don't even care if it posted in SOHO. The point is to shock us into realizing what we do to ourselves is wrong. So your talking about the people behind the billboard helping the community. They may be. You don't know this. So how about you. Your on the YBF preaching so get out there and help our youth. Spread this word your preaching here where it won't reach the correct people. Do your part and stop worrying about others.

What's humiliating about it

What's humiliating about it if its true? Why not keep it real now? If almost 50% of black women have abortions let's talk about it. Let's take a look at it, our reasons and really weigh them. We are so ridiculous sometimes. Not hating at all but this entire blog is about gossip and we're all here. A billboard tells the truth--newsworthy information and they are $^&( Preachers. Grow up Black America. Deal with your issues and stop playing the victim. God loves us but he is not impressed with our posing and B.S. #imjustsayin.

I dont find it offensive at all! It is supposed to get BLACK WOMEN THINKING,TALKING, ACTING. The truth is the abortion clinics WANT black women to get rid of their babies! The woman that created "Planned Parenthood" was a racist! If black people would start doing some damn research and stop always thinking that their fellow black man/woman is trying to keep them down then changes would be made! Im against abortion one hundred percent BUT I will never try to impose my personal opinion on someone. I just want people to think. If you arent ready for kids USE A GODDAMN CONDOM or CONTRACEPTIVE. Its that simple. Yes there are instances where the condom might break or so on and so forth but that is much different from just opting to not use anything at all. The white man is working soooo hard to keep up in the dark and people cant even see it. I know tons of black girls I went to high school with that have recently had kids so you may say well there! That proves they dont have abortions, no actually it doesnt, how can you know that they havent had one before and finally decided to stop going through with them? These rates are high for a reason. All in All just be responsible. If you have sex WRAP IT UP if you arent ready for that type of responsibilty.

If you really believe

If you really believe abortion is wrong, then you should impose your opinion on others, right? It is probably your opinion that theft, murder, rape, and so on are wrong, so you agree that those things should be criminalized I presume. I don't see how abortion is any different. It is not even a victimless crime, and it could not possibly be both victimless and a crime if the mother benefits, which she has been shown to do according to the evidence. If you mean you don't think it is right to simply demand someone agrees with you without trying to argue and persuade, then I agree with you. Mario Cuomo once tried to pull the same thing in terms of "not imposing his personal conviction," and the National Review did a great job of debunking what he was saying. I wish I had the article.

NYC, is not the only place

NYC, is not the only place where you can find this billboard. It was here in Jacksonville, FL. a few months ago....It got a news story about and you should have seen what many racist people had to say about it. There were many comments about how "African American" women use abortion as a form of birth control, it was damn shame some of the things people had to say. As a woman and an African American I was offended by the billboard. Just another way to depict us in a negative light....it's all propaganda, no matter what "statistics" they provide.
Medic!'s picture

I personally dont give a fuck

I personally dont give a fuck what message that devil worshipping pastor and friends were trying to convey. The point is they are humiliating and attacking black women and ostracizing black children. Considering whites make up the majority of the population to begin with. Common sense will tell you even if the precentage is higher for AA. The actual number of women having abortions based on race and population would be white women. I'm pro-choice because aint none of those fuckers gonna pay a bill for not one single mother who was courageous enough against all odds to have her child or children. My religion teacher from high school gave us this long BS talk about how evil, sinful and bad abortion was. But when we asked her if her son (who was dating an East Indian girl at the time) got his girlfriend pregnant if she would help or assist financially or emotionally she bluntly replied with a NO. All these self-righteous assholes are only doing the devils work and putting God's name on it. These pro-lifers need to be considered terrorists because they do exactly what terrosrists do. Brainwash, spread propaganda and attack the innocent to get their point across. If that pastor's mother is alive she needs to disown him.

I so totally agree with this

I so totally agree with this billboard and the campaign. It's sad but very true and someone has to make the first move to bring attention to the public's view so that there can be change. In today's society, shock value is the way to bring attention to any situation, especially with teens. Sex is on tv like it's normal so why can't abortion get the same publicity? More power to this campaign!
