Atlanta Billboards Proclaim 'Black Children Are An Endangered Species'

The 65 billboards, one of which is pictured above, are simple -- just that phrase, a large photo of a child's face, and the Web site, TooManyAborted.com.

That site includes statements such as "The majority of Georgia's abortion clinics are located in urban areas where blacks reside," and promotes a controversial set of beliefs about birth control activist Margaret Sanger and the origins of Planned Parenthood. The site also links to a film about this issue called 'Maafa 21 - Black Genocide in 21st Century America'.

  • I am about halfway through the linked film "Maafa" and think that everyone should be aware of the origin of Planned Parenthood and its links to eugenics.

    As for the "controversial set of beliefs about birth control activist Margaret Sanger ", her own words express her beliefs pretty clearly and are undeniable, as is the historical involvement of eugenicists in PP. Both points are irrefutable and should be brought to light, especially in the communities that are most affected.

  • Not to mention, that when they do have blacks on the pamphlets for abortion, then all of a sudden they are being singled out.

  • "controversial set of beliefs about Margaret Sanger" - makes it sound like there is ANY question about the truth that Margaret Sanger said they needed to get the "weeds" out of the population. The only reason it could be called "controversial" is that Planned Parenthood supporters don't want these ideas to be known.

    Margaret Sanger campaigned for women's freedom from continual pregnancy, she had a bright vision about the imperative need for women to have autonomy. It is curious to see, however, that somehow she felt she had license to decide who qualified for that autonomy and who did not.

    Attempting to follow her thought process, it becomes clear that respect for human beings cannot be negotiated. Once you introduce a caveat into your absolute reverence for others, you inevitably start sliding down the slippery elitist slope of dictating to them, imposing your will since you're more intelligent, violating their autonomy
