Georgia Right To Life Plays The Race Card
The eyebrow-raising ads featuring a young black child are an effort by the anti-abortion movement to use race to rally support within the black community. The reaction from black leaders has been mixed, but the “Too Many Aborted” campaign, which so far is unique to only Georgia, is drawing support from other anti-abortion groups across the country.
“It’s ingenious,” said the Rev. Johnny Hunter, national director of the Life Education and Resource Network, a North Carolina-based anti-abortion group aimed at African-Americans that operates in 27 states. “This campaign is in your face, and nobody can ignore it.”
Nice to know that the anti-abortion crowd is now a flash point for racial sensitivity. As Laffy points out, this might be something to mention the next time someone claims that opposition to President Obama’s policies has nothing to do with race.Click here for reuse options!
