Anti-Abortion Group Plea: Don’t Abort Obama


Women, please don’t abort your babies — one of them might be the next president!

Or at least, that seems to be the plea from a new group of billboards that will be going up around Chicago, with President Barack Obama’s image on them.

National Right To Life News Reports:

The pro-life organization Life Always sent out a statement today that it will be running a new pro-life billboard on  Chicago’s South side featuring a resemblance of an unlikely figure: pro-abortion President Barack Obama. Prior to his election in 2008, Obama was first a state Senator and then a United States Senator from Illinois.

Life Always writes that tomorrow at 11:00 am it will unveil a billboard that reads, “Every 21 minutes, our next possible leader is aborted,” with a drawing of Obama’s face. The first location is 5812 S. State Street.

“Our future leaders are being aborted at an alarming rate,” Life Always Board Member Reverend Derek McCoy said in a statement. “These are babies who could grow to be the future Presidents of the United States, or the next Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington or Maya Angelou.”

Of course, in right to life campaigns, every abortion was of the next person to cure cancer, rescue babies from burning buildings, or in the case of the Tebows, your next Heisman Trophy winner.

    So annoying.  Can we put up a billboard next to it that says your next baby could be a future serial killer with a likeness of Charles Manson on it?

    Then again, Hitler was anti-abortion when it came to white, xian babies. Even encouraged giving babies to worthier families. Sounds a bit familiar, really.

    I considered including Hitler too, but I hate when forced-birthers use the Holocaust in their arguments, so I didn’t want to be hypocritical and use it too.
