The Billboard is angering NYC residents according to DNA Info:
Mae Collazo, 38, who works across the street from the billboard, said she found the billboard incredibly offensive.
“I don’t like it all, what is that supposed to mean?” said Collazo, who is African American, “It makes it sound like all we do is abort our children.”
Collazo added that she didn’t think the higher percentage of abortions registered for African American women in New York necessarily reflect what is actually going on in the community, and questioned the source of the statistics and whether abortions conducted at private clinics are included in the statistics.
