(CNSNews.com) – Pro-life activist Alveda King on Friday called the removal of a pro-life billboard in Manhattan "an outrageous act of censorship." The billboard showed a black girl along with the statement, “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb.”
“This billboard should be posted in every city of the country," King said.
The billboard's message follows a report released last month by the New York City Department of Health that revealed an abortion rate of 41 percent of all pregnancies in the city in 2009 -- with 59.8 percent of those involving African-American women.
“The message of this billboard is totally accurate,” King said in a statement issued by Priests for Life where she is the director of African-American Outreach. “The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb!”
