The Rev. Al Shaprton, who applied pressure to the group who put the ad up said that it was especially offensive during Black History Month.
“The billboard was offensive, especially during Black History Month, and I had intended to hold a press conference Friday in front of the billboard to protest the message of racial profiling and against a woman”s right to choose,” Sharpton said Thursday.
The group responsble for these ads, Life Always, has also placed similar ads in Texas.
