Last month, anti-choice billboards popped up across Atlanta, Georgia blasting the message, "Black Children are an Endangered Species." This campaign, sponsored by Georgia Right to Life and the anti-choice Radiance Foundation, attempts to drive a wedge in our movement by suggesting that the pro-choice community has a hidden agenda to coerce black women to have abortions.
This is the latest anti-choice attempt to disparage the choice community by undermining our solidarity.
A group of reproductive justice organizations including SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, SisterLove, and SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW! has worked tirelessly against the this billboard campaign and the affiliated website, TooManyAborted.com. As SisterSong has stated:
NARAL Pro-Choice New York supports SisterSong and the other reproductive justice organizations working to end this misleading and derisive campaign. Please show your support by joining SisterSong in petitioning the CBS Outdoor Advertising Billboard Management Team. You can help by sending an email to the following contacts:
- Jodi Senese, Vice President, Marketing, email@example.com
- Lou Formisano, Vice President, National Billboard Sales, firstname.lastname@example.org

With your help, we can show our pro-choice solidarity in opposing this manipulative, anti-choice campaign.
