Anti-Abortion Billboards Target Latinas
You may have seen the anti-abortion billboards up around town targeting African-American women, which call black children an "endangered species" and have a link to anti-choice group toomanyaborted.com.
Now, the OC Weekly reports that signs with the same message are cropping up in LA, only this time the targeted audience is Latinas.
The billboard has a message in both English and Spanish, and it reads: "El lugar mas peligroso para un Latino es el vientre de su madre/The most dangerous place for a Latino is in the womb."
Gabriela Valle, senior director of California Latinas for Reproductive Justice, called the ads racist when speaking with the Weekly, and added that "They're anti-woman. They're anti-immigrant. This ad is just one more place for Latino communities to be attacked...An attack to one community is an attack to all."
According to a website at the bottom of the billboards, the group responsible for them is called Unidos por la Vida.
