Wisconsin — Using 13 billboards in Milwaukee, Pro-Life Wisconsin says it wants to raise awareness of what it calls the disproportionate abortion rate among African-American women in Wisconsin.
According to the organization, which works to outlaw abortion, the billboards appeared Nov. 29, 2010, and will stay up for 30 days. They feature one of two messages: “Black children are in danger” or “Black & Beautiful.”
Each billboard shows a picture of an African-American infant and lists a website — TooManyAborted.com/WI. That website, and an announcement about the billboards issued by Pro-Life Wisconsin, make the same claim:
In Wisconsin, “6.2 percent of the population is black, yet 24 percent of all state abortions are on African-Americans.”
