Controversial Black Genocide Billboards Featuring Obama Go Up in Chicago

The billboards are quite aggressive, and in very bad taste.

CHICAGO, March 28, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Thirty pro-life billboards featuring the image of Barack Obama are going up in South Chicago, U.S. president Barack Obama’s adopted hometown, starting tomorrow.

“Every 21 minutes, our next possible LEADER is aborted,” states the ad, which features an artistic rendering of Obama’s profile with a caption directing viewers to “thatsabortion.com.”

“Our future leaders are being aborted at an alarming rate. These are babies who could grow to be the future Presidents of the United States, or the next Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington or Maya Angelou,” said Rev. Derek McCoy, a black pastor and board member of Life Always, which is responsible for the campaign.

According to official U.S. data, black Americans account for approximately 36.9 percent (2007) of the total U.S. abortion numbers, despite accounting for only 12.9 percent (in 2009) of the total U.S. population. Continue reading here.

I  really do not like such in your face tactics. Aggressive tactics such as displaying pictures of aborted babies and similar billboards do more to galvanize the pro abortion stance. They more often than not harden hearts instead of changing hearts.

What do you think of aggressive tactics? Yea, Nay, Other?

One Response to Controversial Black Genocide Billboards Featuring Obama Go Up in Chicago

    Exposing the truth is important but how it’s dealt with also is. I don’t mind fellow pro-life folks sharing images of the horrors of abortion to those who may be seaking abortion and/or are in need of more info. on the subject but sometimes I think some of these groups take it too far. Most especially Live Action, whose overly aggressive tactics aren’t the least concerned with changing hearts; they probably have harden a few hearts.

    What this specific ad is saying is basically something B16 has already mentioned about abortion but in a less confrontational way (in “The Light of the World”, p. 146). Despite the bad rep. he often gets by the media on the way he communicates his ideas (or, more truly, how they are communicated by others) I think many people could actually learn from his thoughtful and considerate way of handling issues like abortion.
